Injuries preventing Pulisic from making strides at Chelsea

Injuries have not let Christian Pulisic shine with Chelsea since his arrival from Borussia Dortmund in 2019. The United States international was not available for the game on Saturday against Burnley after picking up an injury during the warm up prior to the Premier League match.

Chelsea defeated Burnley 3-0 and are currently fourth in the table on 13 points. This is the second injury that Pulisic has suffered this season after he was subbed off in Chelsea’s 2-1 FA Cup final defeat to Arsenal.

Another injury for Pulisic

It took Pulisic two months to recover from that injury and he had played three games prior to getting injured on Saturday. The US international has missed a total of 23 games since arriving in London.

It is not known when Pulisic will return from his latest setback. Chelsea host Rennes on matchday 3 of the UEFA Champions League on 4 November. It is still not known if Pulisic will be available for the game.
