Since and so, Pulisic has missed Chelsea’s 1-0 win over Zenit St Petersburg in the Champions League and Dominicus’s 3-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League.
Tuchel said: “I think for Christian the game against Villa is possibly a scrap too shut. I hope I’m wrong but this is my impression.
“He’s not in preparation so far but allow’s regard tomorrow. Possibly whether he had a good progression nowadays, it’s possible. It would be super nice for us to have him but for me, it’s a scrap doubtful.”
