Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has provided an injury update on Christian Pulisic, who was not part of the squad to face Everton on Saturday.

The Blues lost to Everton with a 1-0 score as Gylfi Sigurðsson scored from a penalty spot at 22nd minute.

“Christian has a bit of an awareness in his hamstring,” the Blues boss told BT Sport. “He did great last week when he came on, but in the week, he’s been feeling a little bit of awareness.

“We’ve seen two wingers of ours go down recently. We’re coming up to the biggest period of the season and players are getting a lot of muscle injuries in their legs.

“Christian, yeah, he wasn’t quite ready. I hope he is for Tuesday or for next week.”

During this season Pulisic has only made five league appearances for the Blues and scored one goal.
