Frank Lampard has confirmed Christian Pulisic’s hamstring injury is nothing to worry about. Pulisic was initially included in Chelsea’s starting eleven to face Burnley in the Premier League at the weekend, but pulled up during the warm-up and was subsequently replaced by Timo Werner, who netted a second-half goal.

Lampard said following the comfortable win over Burnley: “Christian had a scan yesterday which showed a very minor injury to his hamstring. He won’t be fit for tomorrow, but we will see after that.

Before adding: “It’s obviously a relief for it to be on the small side. He’s an important player for us. Some players who play on the edge and have speed could be more susceptible. We are looking at ways to manage Christian. We are all working in the same direction. We know the talent.”
