Christian Pulisic has been condemned to the sidelines for the next four weeks

– The American picked up a hamstring injury in Chelsea’s 2-1 defeat to Arsenal

– Pulisic will miss Bayern Munich’s Champions League meeting in Germany

– The Blues will miss the services of other eight key players for the must-win duel

Chelsea will miss the services of their winger Christian Pulisic when the 2019-20 Premier League season kicks off next month.

The American forward limped off the pitch during the Blues’ 2-1 FA Cup defeat to Arsenal at Wembley Stadium at the turn of a new month.

Pulisic powered the Stamford Bridge outfit ahead with a sumptuous goal but a Pierre-Emerich Aubameyang ensured the Gunners went ahead to win the title after regulation period.

However, the 21-year-old who picked up a hamstring during the match is expected to stay on the sidelines for at least one whole month.

He also becomes the ninth Chelsea star to miss Champions League visit to Allianz Arena against Bayern Munich this weekend.

Meanwhile, Frank Lampard is confident the forward can stage a return earlier than the proposed date by medics as reported by SunSport. He said: “When Christian reflects on the first season, from where he has gone in the start he should be very happy.

“We’ll get him fit and ready. If he misses the first one or two games, we’ll hopefully have him after that.

With Kai Havertz set to join Hakim Ziyech at Stamford Bridge, Pulisic might be ready for a healthy competition if he struggles for fitness early next campaign.

And Lamps admitted of the 21-year-old’s likely absence: “Six weeks, I think so. We have to treat the injury right.

Captain Cesar Azpilicuetsa also suffered an injury last weekend and he will not be a part of their UCL fixture in Germany.

Chelsea finished fourth on the table after allowing Manchester United to displace them from the third position they held on to for some time.
