Christian Pulisic returned to Chelsea this week on crutches, but he is expected to be sidelined for only around 10 days.

Pulisic limped out of the United States’ 4-1 World Cup qualifying win over Honduras on Wednesday after 62 minutes having initially tried to play on with an ankle problem.

The 22-year-old Hershey, Pa., native will miss today’s Premier League home game against Aston Villa as well as the start of Chelsea’s Champions League defence against Zenit St Petersburg on Tuesday.
