Lampard can’t risk Pulisic!

Sun 13 December 2020 | 6:51

The Blues player was once again absent from the field in their clash against Everton.

Chelsea

manager, Frank Lampard admitted that he couldn’t risk having the US international,

Christian Pulisic

, on the pitch as he suffered from an injury before their

Everton

clash. Still Lampard hopes the player will be ready when they face

Wolves

on Tuesday.

"Christian has a bit of awareness in his hamstring. He’s been training through the week but he felt some awareness and we simply can’t risk him.”

"We have seen two wingers go down recently, Ziyech last week and Callum in training. We are coming up to a busy period in the season. As we keep saying, players are getting a lot of muscle injuries.”

"Christian wasn’t quite ready, but hopefully for Tuesday night, we will find out next week."

Pulisic has been suffering from an injury since early in the season and he had the chance to participate in only eight games for the Blues. Lampard, who thought the player would be ready for their match at Goodison Park, stated following their match against

Krasnodar

:

"Christian is a work in progress. I don't want to call this an injury that he had in midweek. If the game had been a different type of game, then maybe I would have used him.”

"We know his abilities and that's very clear. He showed them when he came on against Leeds in midweek. I just have to find the best way of getting it out of him consistently. Christian had a tiny bit of awareness off the back of the Leeds game on one of his hamstrings but he's training normally, so we should be as we were."
