Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic has been out injured since New Year’s Day and hasn’t featured for the club since then due to an adductor injury.

The 21-year-old has been badly missed as Chelsea are going through a period of injury crisis. The club is at an important phase of the season as there are ten league games left until the end of the season and a massive fight for a top four finish.

The American captain has now revealed that he’s super close to a return from injury as he took to Instagram to reveal his current injury state.

“Very thankful for your support,” the 21-year-old wrote on Instagram. “Working so hard and super close to a return!”

Pulisic has missed Chelsea’s last 11 games due to an adductor injury, and Chelsea boss Frank Lampard had revealed in an interview just how difficult the injury can be, having suffered it as a player.

“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,” Lampard said.

“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.”

Chelsea fans can’t wait for the return of Pulisic as he has been missed on the flanks.
