Christian Pulisic was back in Chelsea training on Thursday ahead of Saturday’s Premier League game against Newcastle United.

Pulisic has made just one Premier League appearance so far, starting in the 3-0 win over Crystal Palace in August and hasn’t made an appearance since then after contracting Covid-19 and also picking up an ankle injury.

The game against Newcastle United might come too soon for Pulisic but he will be more hopeful of the trip to Malmo in the Champions League on Tuesday or the visit of Burnley to Stamford Bridge the following weekend.

With Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku out injured, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel will be glad to have another attacking option.
