Christian Pulisic was rolled back from the Chelsea to face Burnley after enduring an injury in the pre-match warm-up

The 22-year-old was replaced by Timo Werner for the clash which Chelsea proceeded Burnley at Turf Moor in the Premier League with a 3-0 win. Timo succeeded to score a 70th-minute goal after Hakim Ziyech and Kurt Zouma also scored two goals. Chelsea head coach Frank Lampard pointed out that

Pulisic'

s hamstring muscle was again a concern following the match against Burnley.

"Christian had a small sensation in his hamstring, so we had to pull him," Lampard said. "He couldn’t play the game and he felt that in part of the warm-up. " He is frustrated as he got fit and we rested him in the week where he comes on and scores. He is so keen to do well for us but we have to scan him and see how it is so I can’t give you a time on that." Lampard confirmed that Pulisic was distressed and would need a scan on his hamstring to see how it is.
