In-form Pulisic ruled out for United States
In-form Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic has been ruled out of the United States’ upcoming matches due to a hip injury. Pulisic sustained the problem during the weekend win against Crystal Palace and will play no part in his country’s games against Canada on Saturday or Cuba four days later. Pulisic has played a key role this season for Chelsea, who have won their last six Premier League matches to climb up to third in the table. The 21-year-old has established himself in Frank Lampard’s starting line-up and has scored five goals in his last three league games, including a hat-trick against Burnley. The USA will play Canada and Cuba in the latest round of their CONCACAF Nations League group matches.
