Pulisic hurts right knee, joins Chelsea’s long injury list

LONDON (AP) — Christian Pulisic has joined Chelsea’s long injury list after hurting his right knee while attempting a shot on goal in a 1-0 loss to Manchester City. The United States winger required treatment after appearing to jar his knee as City defender John Stones made a last-ditch tackle midway through the first half. Pulisic couldn’t continue and was replaced in the 22nd minute. On Pulisic, Chelsea manager Graham Potter said there was “contact with his knee” and wasn’t able to give a timeframe for any possible absence. Potter says “we’re hoping it’s not too serious.”
