Chelsea boss Frank Lampard admits Christian Pulisic will struggle to be fit for the start of next season.

Lampard has revealed the United States winger needs six weeks to beat the hamstring injury he suffered in Chelsea's 2-1 FA Cup final defeat to Arsenal.

"With Christian Pulisic I think it's going to be touch and go for the start of the season," said Lampard.

"We're probably looking around a six-week injury. So with six weeks, doing the maths, it gets very close to, and is probably into, the start of the new season.

"But we have to treat it right, the injury."
