Pulisic in contention to return for Chelsea

Christian Pulisic of Chelsea

Christian Pulisic is back in the Chelsea squad and available for Sunday’s derby against Tottenham. 

Pulisic has been out with a hamstring injury but recently returned to full training and is back in contention to face Jose Mourinho’s side.

Blues boss Frank Lampard confirmed on Friday afternoon that the American has been passed fit, although whether he is ready to start the match remains to be seen.

Lampard said: “He’s fit but there is a question mark as it is hard to gauge match fitness.

“With training times as they are with Covid it is very hard to recreate match play in training because the rest of the players are preparing for matches every three days and we don’t have academy games where we can mix bubbles.

“For every player coming back it is more difficult to start games, but we will see.”
