American soccer star Christian Pulisic of Chelsea was once injured in the second one half of Saturday’s FA Cup last against Arsenal and is expected to overlook next Saturday’s Champions League conflict with Bayern Munich. 

The club, citing manager Frank Lampard, said Pulisic’s injury is a hamstring strain but will need scanning. Lampard also went so far as saying that he would possibly not be fit for next week’s game, meaning the injury could very mannered end Pulisic’s first season at Chelsea.

The winger, who scored five minutes into the game, was once taken off early in the second one half and was once substituted for Pedro.

The 21-year-old American got the start in the game and scored on his first chance in with absolute class. After running into the box, Olivier Giroud given a cheeky assist that the Pennsylvania local put absent with precision and perfect timing. Pulisic got past defenders in front of goal and lifted the ball perfectly over Emiliano Martinez for the opener. 

Have a look:

Pulisic made some history with the goal, fitting the first U.S. men’s international to score in an FA Cup last. 

His injury is a huge blow though, as he is been Chelsea’s most important player in attack since the restart. Chelsea will face Bayern Munich in the second one leg of their Champions League tie. Chelsea enters down 3-0 on aggregate and will see its 2019-20 season end whether it doesn’t advance.
