Chelsea v Malmo: Christian Pulisic is only Blues absentee as American forward nears return

Christian Pulisic is close to a return from injury but it will not come in Chelsea's Champions League Group H game with Malmo on Wednesday.

Blues boss Thomas Tuchel says that the USA international is his only absentee for Wednesday's game.

The forward is in the final stages of his recovery from ankle trouble according to the German manager.

"He was already so close to coming to team training last week, then had a little setback," said Tuchel.

"A little reaction, some pain but nothing serious, and from there we go on.

"He is very impatient of course.
