Ahead of our fourth Champions League group stage fixture against French club Rennes on Tuesday, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has confirmed American international Christian Pulisic is unavailable for selection.

Pulisic has been out injures since he suffered a hamstring injury during warm-up for the victory over Burnley before the international break.

While Pulisic is unavailable for the game against Rennes on Tuesday, Lampard confirmed the American might be available for this weekend’s game against Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge.

Lampard told reporters: “Christian stays back and doesn’t travel but the good news he has had good progression in the last week.

“The reason he is staying back is to get some physical work in to hopefully have him ready for selection for this weekend and onwards.”
