“Unfortunately he came yesterday on crutches,” Tuchel said, “and we have an ankle injury with about 10 days.” Pulisic will miss the English Premier League matches against Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur, as well as Chelsea’s Champions League opener against Zenit St. Petersburg on Tuesday.

Chelsea said on August 20 that Pulisic tested positive for COVID-19, which forced him to miss the Premier League games against Arsenal and Liverpool and then the United States’ World Cup qualifying opener at El Salvador on September 2. The 22-year-old returned for last Sunday’s match against Canada.

Pulisic was hurt at Honduras in the 57th minute when he dribbled into the penalty area and tumbled over Maynor Figueroa, a former Wigan and Hull defender now with Major League Soccer’s Houston team. Pulisic somersaulted off both hands and landed hard.
