Chelsea attacker Christian Pulisic was not in the squad for the 2-1 victory over Arsenal on Sunday because of a minor groin injury that he picked up during a training session following the Boxing Day defeat to Southampton.

The injury isn’t thought to be serious and he was excluded from the squad by Frank Lampard as a precaution.

Marcos Alonso and Reece James missed the trip to Arsenal after failing to recover from injuries that kept them out of the 2-0 defeat to Arsenal. Olivier Giroud also missed the game due to injury.
