Lampard updates on Christian Pulisic return date

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has revealed that Christian Pulisic could be sidelined for another couple of weeks as he continues to recover from an adductor problem.

The United States international has been absent for the past few games due to the concern and it appears that he won't make his comeback until after the mid-season break in February.

"We would like to think so, which kind of goes towards the break in February which might fall at a nice time and give us a bit more to play with. Hopefully he will be back for the other end of that break. It’s in line with how we expected him to be," he told the club's official website.

In the absence of Pulisic, Callum Hudson-Odoi has been afforded with back-to-back starts for the Blues in all competitions and he has impressed with goals in each of those games.

The west London side are currently placed fourth in the league standings. They have a healthy five-point advantage over Manchester United in the pursuit of the final Champions League spot for next term.
