Frank Lampard heaped praise on Christian Pulisic and Ross Barkley whose double substitution was the turnaround moment for Chelsea in the game where they came from behind to win the match. Chelsea had numerous chances to take the lead but were frustrated before Villa themselves scored a goal and went ahead. Lampard was quick to deflect praise from himself when a journalist asked him about his inspirational move to bring the pair on.
Frank Lampard said “The players who make the differences should always take all the credit, With Christian and Ross (Barkley), they came on at the same time and have trained well. Had cases to start but I have some good selection problems. Then you have to consider the type of game and that fitness will play a part, and bringing on Christian and Barkley early in the second half was always in my mind depending on how the game went. The way it was going we needed a bit of inspiration, Christian with his goal and Ross did as well. I think it shows how important subs are.”
