Christian Pulisic was all set for his second consecutive Premier League start earlier yesterday against Burnley.
However, the American speedster pulled out minutes before kick off due to a hamstring tension and Frank Lampard has provided us with an update on the situation.
“Christian had a small sensation in his hamstring. So, we had to pull him,” Lampard told a news conference.
“He couldn’t play the game and he felt that in part of the warm-up. We will have to scan it.
“He is frustrated as he got fit and we rested him in the week where he comes on and scores. He is so keen to do well for us but we have to scan him and see how it is, so I can’t give you a time on that.”
Pulisic has been struggling with injuries for quite some time now and the former Borussia Dortmund winger has missed almost 50% of all his Chelsea games since his arrival.
The nature of football is such that some players do have more injury crises and Pulisic does seem the injury-prone star.
Chelsea will have to very careful with their young star or we might see his career fade away sooner rather than later.
