Chelsea won a comfortable victory over Burnley in the end on Saturday, and it’s easy to forget how things tense were just before kick off.
In need of 3 points to get their league season up and running again, the Blues found themselves in a terrible spot when winger Christian Pulisic limped off during the warmup.
That meant Timo Werner had to enter the fray instead of getting a rest, doubling down on the misfortune.
#CFC expect to discover the severity of Christian Pulisic’s injury today. I’ve been told he is having a scan on the hamstring strain he sustained during the warm-up ahead of the Burnley game on Saturday.
Pulisic has made just 5 appearances this season due to injury.

We’ve seen been waiting impatiently for updates on the American winger’s health, and according to Simon Johnson of the Athletic, that wait is almost over.
He says that it will be today that we find out the results of a crucial scan. Fans, along with the player and his coaching staff, will all be desperate to hear that it’s minor – but given the injury issues he’s already had at the club, many will be fearing it’s a lot worse than that.
