According to The Sun, Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic is set to make his injury return next week.

The 23 year old American winger has not played for the Blues since the 3-0 victory over Crystal Palace in our first Premier League game of the season.

He first contracted Covid-19 which ruled him out of the 3-0 victory over Arsenal before picking up an ankle injury with the USA against Honduras on September 9 and has been out since.

A Chelsea source told The Sun when asked when Pulisic will make his injury comeback: “Maybe next week, if all goes well.”

The Blues are expected to use the international break to step up Pulisic’s rehabilitation.

Pulisic has been plagued by injuries since joining Chelsea in 2019. During his first season at Stamford Bridge, he missed 14 games after suffering with groin, calf and abductor issues.

He missed the same number of matches last season with calf and hamstring injuries.
