Pulisic brought off against PSG
But scans show no serious injury
Could start on bench on Saturday
WHAT HAPPENED? The USMNT forward starred once again as Milan celebrated a famous victory over PSG at San Siro, blowing Group F wide open. However, a fine display at individual and collective level was soured when Pulisic was forced off in stoppage time, with manager Stefano Pioli pessimistic about the hamstring problem after the game – especially considering Pulisic’s dire injury record at Chelsea.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: However, according to Italian journalist Pietro Mazzara, an initial MRI scan has shown that the reality isn’t as bad as first feared. A serious thigh problem has been ruled out, with Pulisic instead suffering a simple contracture. Mazzara notes that the United States star will be monitored over the coming days, and may have to start from the bench against Lecce at the weekend.
