Christian Pulisic 'really suffering' from ankle injury says Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel, with US forward 'impatient' about returning to action

Chelsea forward Christian Pulisic is still feeling the pain from an ankle injury sustained over a month ago.

Pulisic hurt his ankle in USA's 4-1 win over Honduras in a September World Cup qualifier and has not featured for Chelsea since.

Pulisic was again absent from the team's squad for Wednesday's Champions League clash with Malmo and Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel revealed the player faced a fresh injury setback after expecting to return to training last week.
