Christian Pulisic is supposed to be to Chelsea what Florent Malouda was once to the Blues but inconsistent displays and lack of a killer instinct has made it hard for the young American teenager to cement his place at Stamford Bridge.
Former USA coach Klinsmann says the young forward only needs enough playing time under Fran Lampard to nail a permanent place in the first eleven.
