After he was omitted from his side for Saturday’s trip to Everton, Chelsea head coach Frank Lampard said he couldn’t afford to take a risk with Christian Pulisic.

This season, Pulisic has suffered from injuries and Lampard said he was not going to threaten the U.S. international for the game at Goodison Park with Hakim Ziyech and Callum Hudson-Odoi already out.

However, he did express some hope that Pulisic could return for the Premier League clash against Wolves on Tuesday night.

‘In his hamstring, Christian has a bit of awareness,’ Lampard told reporters before the game. Throughout the week, he was practicing, but he felt some awareness and we just couldn’t risk him.

“Recently, we saw two wingers go down, Ziyech last week and Callum in training. In the season we are coming up to a busy time. As we keep saying, there are a lot of muscle injuries that players get.

“Christian wasn’t quite ready, but hopefully for Tuesday night, we will find out next week.”

Pulisic suffered an injury-hit season because for the Blues, he was limited to just eight total appearances. At the beginning of the season, he missed some games while recovering from a hamstring injury he sustained in last term’s FA Cup final, while he then missed more time with another hamstring problem in October and November.
