According to Daily Mail, Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic is targeting Chelsea’s Premier League clash with Manchester United for his return to action.

The £58million signing from Borussia Dortmund hasn’t played for the Blues since New Year day after picking up a thigh injury.

The game against Manchester United on February 17th is an important game Chelsea must not lose in the race for a top four finish.

Pulisic returned to training at the end of last week and believes he will be fit for selection when Chelsea face United after the winter break on Monday, February 17.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard admitted he’ll be happy to have Pulisic back in the team.

Lampard said: “The break might have come at a good time because it buys us a couple of weeks.

“I won’t have an answer [on when Pulisic can return] until we’re back training.

“He’s a quality player and was having a really good patch pre-Christmas. Others have to stand up too but of course we’ll be happy to have him back.”
