Chelsea has got a major injury boost as Pulisic is expected to come back to action.
Chelsea fans will finally see Christian Pulisic back in action after a while. He hasn’t appeared for any Chelsea matches since he injured his hamstring in the FA Cup final, where the Blues lost the FA Cup to Arsenal.
“I’ll say that I’m feeling very good, and very ready to play. I’m missing it a lot,” said the midfielder.
Frank Lampard had earlier raised some concerns about Christian Pulisic’s fitness.
He said: ‘There is always a concern about players’ fitness when the history says there has been some injuries and last season we did have it with Christian. I was questioned many times on my position on Christian when he did play and didn’t play.
‘Of course, when you look at a player with his recent record, you are trying to find the right way, the right balance of getting the best out of him which we saw in big periods last year and making sure you don’t overcook him and leave him susceptible to injury, particularly a player of his explosive pace and balance. That’s a fine line.
‘We are working on that and Christian is also very open to that. He wants to play, he is so hungry to play and he is very nearly fit now but it is certainly something we will have to manage with him this season because we have all seen the talent and it is something we want to get right.
