Pulisic is now a serious doubt for Chelsea’s Champions League Last 16 second leg clash away at Bayern Munich, but with the Blues already 3-0 down in the tie their task was already challenging.

But reflecting on Sunday’s defeat to Arsenal at Wembley, Pulisic was trying to be optimistic.

Posting on Instagram, Pulisic said: “Gave it everything we had. Wasn’t our day.. thank you guys for your support I’ll be back in no time”

Chelsea also lost Cesar Azpilicueta to a hamstring injury as they lost 2-1 at Wembley on Saturday evening.

“I don't know the full extent of the injuries,” said Lampard after the match. “But I know the hamstrings with Azpi and Christian - they have to be scanned and assessed over the next few days.

"They clearly won't be fit for next week [against Bayern Munich in the Champions League]."
