Christian Pulisic is set to miss TWO MONTHS after suffering a knee injury in Chelsea’s defeat to Manchester City… as boss Graham Potter reveals horror injury diagnosis just as unlucky USA star was hitting top form
Chelsea and USA winger Christian Pulisic is set for an extended spell on the sidelines after leaving Chelsea’s 1-0 loss to Man City last week with a knee injury.
Pulisic left the January 5 fixture just 22 minutes in, and Chelsea boss Graham Potter revealed Wednesday that the player could be out of action until March.
‘Christian [Pulisic] is a couple of months we think. Raheem [Sterling] is less, hopefully less than that,’ he told reporters.
Pulisic has battled injury issues throughout his Chelsea career and only started 13 games in the league last season.
But he appeared to be back in favor following an impressive World Cup with the United States, as he had started Chelsea’s last three league matches before being subbed off vs. City.
The winger has one goal and two assists in all competitions this season.
