Christian Pulisic is in the best form of his career right now for Chelsea and Frank Lampard will hope the American winger continues that trend this weekend.
Chelsea currently occupies third place in the Premier League table and faces a trip to Sheffield United on Saturday. Pulisic has scored three goals in six combined appearances since the resumption of the season in June. The 21-year-old is also becoming a menace in possession, winning penalties and fouls for the London club. With Leicester City and a surging Manchester United right behind them in the table, the Blues will seek a third-consecutive win and a first road win at Bramall Lane since 2006.
Elsewhere, Erik Palmer-Brown and Austria Wien begin a two-legged matchup with Hartberg with the winner qualifying for the Europa League next season. Tyler Boyd will look to make it two goals in two matches for Turkish side Besiktas while Tim Ream and Fulham aim for a fourth win in a row. DeAndre Yedlin and Newcastle United face Watford on Saturday with the American defender playing his first game as a 27-year-old.
