Chelsea will be going into the upcoming match against Burnley without the star from our reverse fixture earlier in the season, Christian Pulisic. The American has suffered an adductor injury in training, putting him out of action for at least a few weeks.
At Turf Moor, Pulisic put Burnley to the sword as he announced his arrival to the Premier League finally with a hattrick which saw Chelsea win 4-2 against the Clarets.
Pulisic had already sat out our 2-0 win over Arsenal due to a hamstring niggle but was back in the lineup for Chelsea’s 1-1 draw against Brighton.
Unfortunately, this time it’s serious and he may end up being out for weeks, at least.
“Pulisic is out, he will be out for a few weeks. Adductor injury. It’s disappointing for us and we will have to see how quickly he recovers because it is quite a nasty injury.
”It is a damaging miss. Before Christmas, he did report a bit of tiredness so he came out of the team and I was worried about injury.
”He is a very talented player, where he can make things happen.”

Adductor injuries are never nice and we will miss Pulisic a lot considering how the attack has been struggling against smaller teams. In the last 6 Premier League matches, we have beat Arsenal and Spurs but failed to win against Everton, Bournemouth, Southampton and Brighton.
Wishing you a fast recovery, Captain America.
