Christian Pulisic will miss Chelsea’s Champions League clash with Rennes at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.

The USA forward tweaked his hamstring in the warm-up at Burnley on Saturday, and was withdrawn from the Blues’ 3-0 Premier League win.

Pulisic has avoided serious injury however, with boss Frank Lampard hoping to have him back in action soon.

Chelsea’s provisional squad to take on Rennes does include Edouard Mendy, who signed from the French club in the summer – but doesn’t include legendary goalkeeper Petr Cech, who also signed from Rennes way back in 2004.
