Chelsea drew on Saturday against Leicester City but American star Christian Pulisic was not on the bench and had to watch the game from the stands of the King Power Stadium. The captain of the United States men’s national team posted a picture on social media showing him out running, a clear indication that he is ready to play.

Even though he is back fit, Chelsea coach Frank Lampard stated last week that Pulisic will be ready to play by mid-February because he needs to be one hundred percent, like the rest of the players. So far he has missed four weeks due to his injury and he is eager to get back.
