There was bad news for Chelsea and Christian Pulisic after Frank Lampard revealed he is sidelined with a “nasty” injury.

Lampard did not have good news today at his press conference, he added both Marcos Alonso and Christain Pulisic to the injury list.

According to the clubs official website, chelseafc.com Lampard has serious concerns for Pulisic.

While Alonso will be missed in tomorrow’s game, he is not thought to be long term. This game just arrived too soon.

Lampard said:

“Marcos Alonso is recovering. He trained today but he won’t be ready for tomorrow. “

But the news on the American winger was not good at all.

He added:

“Christain is out for a few weeks.”

“He was injured in training last Saturday before Nottingham Forest.”

“It’s a tendon injury in the adductor so we’ll have to see how quickly he recovers.”

“It’s quite a nasty injury and he was in pain when it happened.”

Pulisic had a tough start to life at Stamford Bridge. Even though he has steadily improved, his future has been debatable.

Being out of the team for an extended period of time will not help his situation.
