Frank Lampard’s Chelsea squad have landed in the Far East and are currently progressing with training sessions in Japan, but all the focus was on the Blues’ newest star Christian Pulisic, who joined training for the first time.

The USA international is part of the squad available to Frank Lampard ahead of the next pre-season friendly against Japanese side Kawasaki Frontale (Friday), quickly followed by a blockbuster clash against Barcelona (next Tuesday).

Christian Pulisic’s first likely appearance in a Chelsea shirt this Friday will draw plenty of attention from Blues fans keen to see what the former Dortmund star can do ahead of the new season. The 20-year-old has a huge opportunity to stake a claim and fill-in the absence of the departed Eden Hazard.
