Christian Pulisic is Chelsea’s super sub, and if he keeps it up it will be hard for Frank Lampard to keep him on the bench.

After getting a hockey assist in Chelsea’s lone goal this weekend, the American winger entered the fray at Ajax with the same score line at Johan Cruyff Arena.

Immediately active, the 21-year-old set up his old pal Michy Batshuayi, also a sub, as he did so often at Borussia Dortmund.

Pulisic dribbled past Sergino Dest to open up space for a cutback from the left, which rolled through Marcos Alonso’s legs and onto the path of Batshuayi, who likes himself from that part of the field.

Pulisic had two shots and connected on 12 of 13 passes, taking two corners with one successful dribble in just over 20 minutes of work.

The assist is Pulisic’s fifth in 524 minutes with the Blues, while he awaits his first goal.
