Chelsea's Pulisic a doubt for Liverpool clash

Chelsea FC might miss the services of winger Christian Pulisic when they take on Liverpool in the weekend according to manager Frank Lampard.

The Blue began their season with a 3-1 win over Brighton & Hove Albion on Monday night but they did that without the USA international who has a hamstring problem.

"Christian was training with us last week but he had a little bit of discomfort a couple of days ago where he was trying to train with us and be in contention for today.

"It would have been a big ask for today but he's had to take a few steps back. That's one that I don't have big news on at the minute. We'll see," Lampard said after the Brighton game.

Chelsea face champions Liverpool on Sunday in a top of the table clash with the Jurgen Klopp side having started their season with a hard 4-3 win over newcomers Leeds at Anfield.

In the absence of Pulisic, Lampard started all his big guns in the Brighton game with Haverts and Werner all starting the game; the club having to do without new signing Ziyech too who injured himself in the preseason.
