Chelsea were beaten 2-5 at home in the Premier League by West Brom on Saturday and Christian Pulisic is another player whose name has been added to the Blues injury list.
Thanks to the international break, Thomas Tuchel managed to get players like Jorginho, Thiago Silva and Tammy Abraham back from injury but on Saturday, the American international picked up a hamstring injury.
Pulisic got a rare start and even managed to score the first goal of the match in the 27th minute but he ended up playing only the first half.
Speaking after the match, Thomas Tuchel revealed that the forward had injured his hamstring and now footage has revealed just how the American picked up the injury.
Christian Pulisic had actually come out for the second half since the manager had no intentions of taking him off. But just as he come out of the tunnel and took a slight jog, the 22-year-old felt a slight niggle and immediately went to his boss.
Here’s the video:

Further tests will reveal the extent of the injury but having already found the back of the net in the first half, Christian Pulisic might have been the perfect person to stage a comeback in the second 45 minutes against the Baggies.
But now, we will never know.
