Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic says he can't wait to return to football following his injury spell earlier this year. The American Pulisic was ruled out of action for three months due to a tendon injury, but he is now fully fit and ready to help Frank Lampard's Blues secure a top-four spot once the Premier League resumes. Pulisic has not played for the west London club since New Year's Day at Brighton. "I didn't take it as seriously as I think I should have," he told Sky Sports News. "It was one of those you felt you could do a lot of things but you try to push it that one extra step and realise it's not ready yet."

The 21-year-old added: "In times like these [COVID-19 lockdown] it's nice to be able to spend time with family, finding shows to watch, playing video games and being able to work out. "We're training, following all the government guidelines and hopefully we're back playing soon. "I'm a big fan of golf and basketball and I've got a miniature hoop here so I can shoot at my house."
