Chelsea vs Aston Villa: Pulisic returns to UK on crutches

Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, has revealed Christian Pulisic returned this week on crutches.

However, Tuchel expects the American winger to be sidelined for only around 10 days.

Pulisic limped out of his country’s 4-1 win over Honduras in a World Cup qualifier on Wednesday after 62 minutes.

The 22-year-old arrived back in London on Thursday and will miss Saturday’s Premier League home game against Aston Villa.

He is also likely to sit out Chelsea’s Champions League group fixture against Zenit St Petersburg on Tuesday.

“For Christian, unfortunately, he came yesterday on crutches and he has an ankle injury with about 10 days [out],” Tuchel confirmed.

Chelsea is also without N’Golo Kante this weekend because of an ankle problem that ruled him out of France’s internationals this month, but he has a chance to face Zenit. Dailypost
