Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic missed Chelsea’s Premier League victory over Burnley after suffering an injury in the warm-up.

The American international was named in the starting XI for the game against Burnley but then had to be replaced by Timo Werner after he picked up a knock in the warm-up.

With Werner, who was initially named on the bench, replacing Pulisic, young Chelsea goalkeeper Karlo Ziger was then named as one of Chelsea’s substitutes.

The Blues beat Burnley 3-0 at Turf Moor to move up to fourth in the Premier League table. Hakim Ziyech, Kurt Zouma and Timo Werner were the goalscorers.
