Chelsea football club of England has been dealt another injury blow as star man is injured.
The blues suffered their first defeat under the tutelage of Thomas Tuchel, but the defeat was not the only blow for the Stamford Bridge side as Christian Pulisic was on the receiving end of the encounter.
The United States of America star was substituted in the first half of the 5-2 loss to West Bromwich Albion. A result that could dampen the club's top four chances, as the blues lead 5th place West Ham United by 2 points, and the Hammers have one game in hand.
However, Speaking in his post match press conference, Tuchel confirmed that Pulisic tweaked his hamstring and that was why he didn’t play in the second half.
The former Borussia Dortmund winger will have to undergo further tests to ascertain the extent of the injury and that will cast doubt over his availability for Chelsea's champions league match against FC Porto.
