Pulisic and Lukaku in mixed injury news for Chelsea as Tuchel gives updates on USMNT and Belgium stars

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has delivered mixed injury news ahead of facing Brentford, with Christian Pulisic “still injured” but Romelu Lukaku ready for Premier League action.

The Blues will be making a short trip to face west London neighbours on Saturday aiming to cement their place at the top of the table.

That cause will be aided by the availability of the prolific Belgian striker, who picked up a slight knock during the October international break, but the American forward remains sidelined with an ankle complaint and Thiago Silva is unlikely to be risked following an epic journey back from Brazil.
