Chelsea attacker Christian Pulisic has returned to training ahead of Thursday’s FA Cup game against Barnsley.

The American international missed Sunday’s 2-1 victory over Sheffield United due to personal reasons.

“Christian has some family issues to solve. Family is always first,” explained Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel.

“So we decided to give a rest for this game.”

Pulisic took part in Tuesday’s training session and is expected to be available for the tie against Barnsley on Thursday.
