Frank Lampard, Chelsea's boss has confirmed that Pulisic is ready to play for Chelsea but they won't risk it.
’s injury problem has always been a question forChelsea
fans. He has been injured for a while not only once but a couple of times since his arrival in London. This season he has only played five times for Chelsea. In total 175 minutes of Premier League football.
Frank Lampard however confirms that the American player is ready to play for Chelsea but his participation in the next match is uncertain.
It could be that he figures in the derby date with Tottenham on Sunday, with Lampard telling reporters:
“Christian Pulisic is back into contention, Kai Havertz had some minutes the other day [against Rennes] so now it's more just checking on his potential for full match fitness, but we're in pretty good shape.”
“He is fit but ready to start is a question mark, because it's hard to gauge match fitness during coronavirus. In the training times as they are, it's very hard to recreate match play because the rest of the players are playing every three days and we didn't have any academy players to mix bubbles.
“For every player, not just Christian Pulisic, coming back to fitness it is more difficult at the moment to get them ready to start games. We’ll see.”
