Christian Pulisic is available for selection when Chelsea meets Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League’s match of the weekend.
Pulisic has missed three Premier League matches and two more in the Champions League including Tuesday’s win over Stade Rennes. He has one goal in under 300 minutes this season, which started late due to injury before the current interruption in service.
Blues boss Frank Lampard was hopeful Pulisic would be ready for the weekend after not traveling to France, and confirmed the American’s availability after the match in France.
Lampard was also asked about the plan for fans to return to Premier League venues soon.
“We want fans back, I’m not sure how the system will work. If it feels safe then it is the most important thing. Hopefully the level playing field happens. A lot of things have been disrupted. We are really happy if it’s safe,” Football.London quoted Lampard as saying.
