Christian Pulisic missed Chelsea’s first match of the season with a hamstring injury.
The American appeared on the road to recovery and a potential option for Frank Lampard against Brighton. However, Pulisic had a set-back in training leading up to the match and was kept on the bench.

Christian Pulisic injury update
On Friday, it was announced that Christian Pulisic is out vs Liverpool. So are new additions Hakim Ziyech and Ben Chilwell.
His status can certainly change over the coming days. But Pulisic, who has been Chelsea’s best player when available in 2020, looks likely to be unavailable again.
When Chelsea played Liverpool after the restart, Pulisic was electric. For reasons nobody understood, Lampard did not start the American. Pulisic was subbed in the second half and immediately lit the Reds up for a goal and assist.
