Cape Town - Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic says his recovery is going well and he is on track to return from injury before the end of the month.

Pulisic has endured a stuttering start to life in the Premier League with Chelsea and 2020 didn’t get off on a positive note.

The USA international was last seen in the 1-1 draw with Brighton on New Year’s Day but he sustained an adductor injury during training over the following days.

He had previously been struggling with a hamstring and hip problem and he is hoping to use this break to return to full health.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has been coy over a date for Pulisic’s return but the 21-year-old is hoping to be back in the “next couple of weeks".

"It’s been almost a week, and I’m just kind of taking it day by day. I’m just rehabbing every day. I’m doing my best to be back in the next week, the next couple weeks," Pulisic said. “I don’t think it should be too long, so I’m just working every day, doing everything I can to be back on the pitch."

The winger had to be patient for his opportunity in the first team after linking up with Chelsea over the summer.

Pulisic announced himself on the Premier League stage with a hat-trick against Burnley on October 26 and has since become a key figure for the west London side.
