Chelsea boss Lampard provides injury update on Pulisic

Chelsea forward Christian Pulisic is set to miss the Champions League match against Rennes tomorrow with a hamstring problem. 

Pulisic missed Chelsea's 3-0 win over Burnely over the weekend with Lampard revealed he suffered a hamstring injury that saw him pull out of the starting XI. The Blues boss has now revealed American will not be available for selection tomorrow against Rennes however he has cooled any concerns that the forward could be on the sidelines for a lengthy period.

"Christian had a scan yesterday, which showed a very minor injury to his hamstring," Lampard told the club's official website. 

‘It’s very minor, which is good, and he’s already back outside. He won’t be fit for tomorrow’s game but we will see after that. It’s a relief for the injury to be on the small side, of course, and it felt that way to Christian. He made the right decision to pull out against Burnley."

Not serious injury

"We are pleased it’s not a serious injury and we hope to have him back very soon, because he’s an important player for us."

"Muscle injuries are things you have to be careful with and some players who play on the edge and have speed could be more susceptible to them. We are looking at ways to manage Christian, we are all working in the same direction on that front. We all know the talent he has and he’s a very important player for us."

The west London side will welcome Rennes at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday in their third Champions League group stage match.
