Christian Pulisic’s layoff has been a bit of riddle. The American missed out over the Christmas period to the surprise of fans. It looked as if the 21-year-old had been dropped. However, news of a minor groin problem was the diagnosis
Unfortunately it hasn’t been as minor as first thought. Captain America, as he is affectionately called, has missed over two-months of action. There’s no doubt we need him back as soon as possible.
Even more so considering Callum Hudson-Odoi has been missing with a thigh injury for a short while, and Willian suffered a knock to his Achilles on Tuesday night.
Finally a positive update has arrived. The USA international has taken to Instagram, hinting a return to action is close.
Despite a slow start to his Blues career, Pulisic contributed six-goals, and Six-assists before sustaining a torn abductor muscle injury. The highlight was a perfect hattrick in a 4-2 victory at Burnley.
A bit of positivity in an injury ravaged season is just what is needed at Stamford Bridge. Sunday’s clash with Everton could prove to soon, but nonetheless it’s a move in the right direction as we approach the business end of the season.
