Some Chelsea fans despair as Christian Pulisic is wasted out on the left again

Frank Lampard’s team selections are always the subject of some controversy – in fact, every manager’s team selection is the subject of some controversy these days.

There’s one selection the Chelsea manager has made two games in a row though which is winding up a select group of supporters.

Both on Saturday against Southampton and last night against Sevilla, Lampard picked Mason Mount on the left wing, with Christian Pulisic playing off the right.

This gets Mount into the team when there otherwise wouldn’t be room for him, but means Pulisic playing on his less effective side.

This irritates a lot of fans who want to see the winger used in his most effective role, given how dangerous he can be. On social media, there was a wave of frustration at one point that Lampard was insisting on keeping things as they were.

He went on to put Pulisic on the left in the second half, to much greater effect.
