Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has revealed that Christian Pulisic could be out of action for a few weeks after sustaining a hamstring injury.
The USA international was picked to start on the left wing against Burnley, but he unfortunately picked up the injury in the warm-up unchallenged.
Hence, he was replaced by Timo Werner in the first XI and Lampard has confirmed that Pulisic could be out of contention for a while.
“Yes, he felt a little something in his hamstring. He’s frustrated because he’s worked so hard to get fit. Hopefully it’s short term, we’re talking weeks,” He told.
Pulisic has been hampered by several injuries during a short span of time at Chelsea and the trend has continued from his final seasons at Borussia Dortmund.
He will be hoping that he can recover from the last setback as soon as possible. The Blues moved to fourth in the league standings after their 3-0 win at Turf Moor.
