Thomas Tuchel Rules Christian Pulisic Out of Chelsea's Clash vs Norwich

Christian Pulisic will be sidelined for Chelsea's Premier League fixture against Norwich City on Saturday afternoon.

The 23-year-old will remain out with an ankle injury when the Canaries visit Stamford Bridge at the weekend. 

Pulisic has been suffering from the ankle problem which he picked up at the start of September on USMNT international duty. He was only expected to be out for around 10 days, but he has now been out for well over a month.

On team news, Tuchel said: "To make the question a longer question, how is Christian Pulisic? All three of them are out for tomorrow. No big news for Romelu and Timo. They are out tomorrow and will be out for the Southampton game then from then we see what’s next. 

"I don’t think it makes any sense that we go into speculations about how long this is going to be. If we did this with Christian Pulisic you would think that I am a liar, I am constantly lying or hiding something. The fact is you never know. Things can be shorter or longer than expected. 

"The one thing I can tell you for sure is that they are both in treatment, feeling positive. They are out for the next two games for sure."
