Why Christian Pulisic missed Chelsea's Premier League clash against Burnley

Christian Pulisic missed Chelsea’s Premier League clash against Burnley after suffering an injury in the warm-up.

The Blues travelled to Turf Moor on Saturday afternoon to face a Burnley side who are still searching for their first victory of the 2020-21 season.

Pulisic was named in Frank Lampard’s starting XI but then had to be replaced by Timo Werner after the USA international ‘picked up a knock’ in the warm-up.

Germany striker Werner, who has scored four goals in nine appearances for Chelsea, was initially named on the bench by Lampard but started after Pulisic was ruled out.

Lampard made three other changes changes from last weekend’s goalless draw at Manchester United, with Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount and Hakim Ziyech coming in and Jorginho and Cesar Azpilicueta missing out.
