Pulisic was signed by Chelsea a few seasons ago in hope that he would develop and be the man that would ultimately replace Eden Hazard.

But despite showing some glimpses and scoring a few goals – he has been relatively disappointing and there has been alot of speculation that he could be leaving in the January window.

He has fallen well down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge – he is not a main player for Graham Potter – and he is not happy – he is not enjoying sitting on the bench every week and watching his career pass him by

The World Cup gave Pulisic the chance to showcase his ability – and he looked like a different player – he looked like the star that shone so brightly during his time with Borussia Dortmund.

But despite all the speculation that he will be leaving the club  -Potter has opened up and now put an end to all those rumours.

Asked if Pulisic could be allowed to head out on loan in the current window, Blues boss Potter told reporters: “No chance. There was never even consideration anyway but he’s a couple of months out.”

Quizzed on how the USMNT star is feeling after being forced to take in an enforced spell out of action, Potter added: “Yeah, he’s disappointed. But he’s optimistic he can come back quicker than the two months. He’s in that phase where he’s trying to keep his fingers crossed and hoping his rehab goes well.”

Look – Pulisic had a couple of good weeks at the World Cup and played really well against lower level teams like Iran and Wales – but that doesn’t hide the fact he has been poor for Chelsea for a long time

The only reason that he is staying at Stamford Bridge this month is because he is needed, otherwise he would be gone
