Chelsea fans are waiting on the final confirmation of the news that is expected to be of the worst kind ahead of the Manchester City clash in the Premier League – that in-form Christian Pulisic is out.
According to a report in the Metro, Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is sweating on a hip injury that kept Christian Pulisic out of his country’s recent internationals, and doesn’t seem to have fully healed in-time for the trip to the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.
The American remained in London for treatment during the international break and Chelsea have been able to closely monitor his progress – with a final say on his condition for the Premier League clash likely to be announced in Frank Lampard’s pre-match press-conference.
The hip injury goes back to Chelsea’s last match, a 2-0 home win over Crystal Palace, where Pulisic scored one of the goals – a run of form that has seen the 21-year-old score five in three Premier League fixtures.
