Chelsea star Christian Pulisic has been ruled out of action for a few weeks after sustaining an adductor injury.

Blues boss Frank Lampard confirmed the news ahead of their Saturday's Premier League clash against Burnley at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea are currently are fourth on the table with 36 points from 21 matches and they will hope to finish the season strong to play Champions League football next season.
Lampard said in a press conference on Friday: "Pulisic is out, he will be out for a few weeks due to adductor injury.
"It's disappointing for us and we will have to see how quickly he recovers because it is quite a nasty injury.
"It is a damaging miss. Before Christmas, he did report a bit of tiredness so he came out of the team and I was worried about injury. "He is a very talented player, where he can make things happen."
Lampard also reveals that Ruben Loftus Cheek is still in recovery from the serious Achilles injury he suffered, adding that he hopes to get back to training with the academy.
"He [Loftus Cheek] is out, still for a while. We are hoping we can get him doing collective training at some point, maybe with the academy," he said.
