Christian Pulisic returns to Chelsea training as comeback nears, could feature against Leeds

Chelsea have been handed an injury boost with Christian Pulisic back in training, reports the Evening Standard.

The United States international has been out of action since injuring his knee against Manchester City on January 5.

The 24-year-old returned to training on Wednesday but is unlikely to feature against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

Pulisic only joined his Blues teammates for part of midweek’s session. He is nearing a comeback and could make an appearance against Leeds United.

Chelsea face the west Yorkshire club on March 4 and will be eyeing a victory against the relegation-threatened team.

Pulisic has played in 21 games across all competitions this term. The former Borussia Dortmund star has scored a goal and claimed two assists in those appearances.

He is out of contract in 2024 and the club reportedly have no plans of offering him an extension.

Chelsea are open to selling Pulisic this summer in order not to lose him for free.

However, that could change if he manages to convince Graham Potter and the board in the coming games.

The American has found it difficult to establish himself in Chelsea’s starting XI since joining them in 2019.

The Blues have added more attackers to their ranks over the last two transfer windows.

This could make Pulisic’s chances of forcing his way into the manager’s plans slimmer.

Nevertheless, he will be focused on making an immediate impact when he returns to action.

Chelsea are 10th in the Premier League after 23 games and in dire need of victories having won just two of their last 14 matches.
