Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic has been sorely missed and is yet to play a minute of action since New Year’s Day with an adductor problem.

The injury has been a frustrating one for the American, and Blues boss Frank Lampard has revealed that he has no idea when the 21-year-old will return to action.

Lampard suffered a similar problem during his playing days and sympathises with the American captain ahead of the Bournemouth clash.

“The projected time out was a lot less than what it’s turned out to be,” said the Chelsea boss.

“I had a similar injury myself as a player and was out for three months, the worst injury I had so I can certainly sympathise and speak with him about the detail of the injury because it’s not an easy one.

“I actually re-injured it trying to be too keen to come back so I know it’s a delicate injury. I expected him back quicker but knowing the injury I can see that it’s a difficult one.”
