‘Yes, he felt a little something in his hamstring.

‘He’s frustrated because he’s worked so hard to get fit.

‘He’s played three games, we’ve tried to manage him in the week and it’s a small feeling in his hamstring so we’ll have to see how he is over the next 24 hours.’

The Chelsea boss added: ‘Hopefully it’s short term, we’re talking weeks.

‘It’s a minor feeling that he had but definitely not right to go into 90 minutes of a game with that.’

At least the international break is coming up...

What a lovely little ball for the 4th that was.

Read an article today that shows at present his productivity with and without the ball is overall pretty poor compared to the other players in his position. He averages fewer tackles per 90 mins

I see he wears No. 22. Hopefully he will keep it at the Bridge.  You know what I mean.

How can you injure yourself without any contact or pressure on a plain field of grass? there does not even seem to be a ball in the vicinity. The boy really is a glass cannon needs to be managed super carefully. maybe sit him out the next two games so he cant feature in the intl break at least

Tbf you dont need contact to get a hamstring injury. Could be an accumulation of many things. Hopefully 2/3 weeks then he is fine because we need him to he fit. He is probably still our most important attacking player.

It’s something I believe won’t ever change. His muscles can’t withstand a period of contractions you’d want in a top athlete without getting fatigued relatively quickly. Fatigued muscle fibers are then prone to tear. 
 

It’s simply his genetic makeup.

If they are friendlies with no qualifying consequences, he will just train with the team. 

If he's not going to play for his NT side, why even bother going? Better off just staying back at Cobham and not risk contracting COVID-19 from all the silly travelling.

Much bigger than playing these friendlies is getting the team together so they can play together for games that do count toward qualifying for World Cup. The team does need to train together.

If he's going there, you can bet that Pulisic will play at some capacity, fitness permitting. Otherwise, it's silly to just train and not play when only through playing that the team can improve and work on things.

We gotta sign a top class winger next summer if this keep up, were already a winger short and the judges are still out on Odoi, if Pulisic is so injury prone, we can almost never count on him for the majority of the season and reaching our objectives.
