Pulisic has now been ruled out of Chelsea's match against Aston Villa on Saturday evening. but he will miss further games after Tuchel revealed he would be sidelined for around 10 days


"Pulisic came back injured," said Tuchel on Friday in his pre-Aston Villa press conference. "Christian unfortunately came on crutches yesterday, an ankle injury with about ten days."

They are three matches that Pulisic is set to miss if Tuchel's diagnosis of 10 days is correct. Chelsea also play Aston Villa again in the Carabao Cup three days later so his involvement in the cup tie will be touch and go as he looks to regain match fitness. 

Chelsea face Manchester City (h) and Juventus (a) before the end of September which Pulisic will be eager to feature in.
