In 2019-20, Pulisic played in 25 of 38 Premier League games and four of eight Champions League game in his first season with Chelsea.

Christian Pulisic could be fit to return for Chelsea as early as this weekend after scans showed the USA winger sustained a "very, very minor" hamstring injury, manager Frank Lampard said on Tuesday.

"It's obviously a relief for the injury to be minor because he's an important player for us and he's already back outside [training]. He's not fit tomorrow, but we'll see after that". "He made the right decision to pull out against Burnley".

Chelsea are top of Group E after a 0-0 home draw with Sevilla, followed by a 4-0 away win over FK Krasnodar, while Rennes, third in France's Ligue 1, are bottom of the table.

Frank Lampard has backed Edouard Mendy to "go much further" following a "very good start" to his Chelsea career since signing from Rennes.

"What I saw today was a very composed, commanding goalkeeper", Ferdinand said on BT Sport. It is early days for him at the club.

"I had a word with Jorginho and his answer was ideal as a professional, he said he doesn't care who takes them, he just wants them to score". All the feedback, was that he had a great personality in the dressing room, and everything I heard has come true. He is very low maintenance. "He works hard, wants to work more and is eager to engage with his team-mates and with myself". He has smile on his face and it's a real positive when a player hits the ground running on the pitch, but is a pleasure in the dressing room too.

Mendy completed a £22 million ($29m) move to Chelsea from Rennes in September, committing his future to the club through to 2025 in the process.

It's not the only way he Abraham matched Lampard on Wednesday, as Reece James' assist on the forward's goal made that occasion the first time two Englishmen have combined for a Champions League goals for Chelsea at Stamford Bridge since March 2012.
