Tuchel provides injury update on Christian Pulisic ahead of Champions League Game vs Malmo

In the last few months Christian Pulisic has been quite unlucky with his fitness and has been left stranded on the sidelines for Chelsea.

Apparently, the 23-year-old has not appeared for the Blues since August 14, going away from contention with an ankle issue sustained during international duty in September.

However, ahead of Chelsea’s Champions League trip to Sweden, the USMNT star has been included in the squad by head coach, Thomas Tuchel.

The German boss has confirmed that Pulisic will be part of the team as the Londoners visit Malmo in the next round of the European competition on Tuesday night.

During a press conference, Tuchel spoke of the striker: “Christian Pulisic is back. And back in the squad for tomorrow.”
