LONDON (AP) – Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has urged winger Christian Pulisic to “stay positive” with limited playing time and a tight calf questioning the often injured American for Saturday’s visit to Southampton

Tuchel tried to quell speculation about Pulisic’s long-term future at Stamford Bridge on Friday. Pulisic’s only start since Tuchel took over late last month was in an FA Cup game last week

The German manager said it was a “resounding yes” when asked if 22-year-old Pulisic should stay at Chelsea

“But it’s not just my point of view, we have to see. But for me of course yes,” said Tuchel. “Chelsea bought Christian for a reason – because of his quality, because of his potential and our job to get the best out of him””

Pulisic, who made his Bundesliga debut at Borussia Dortmund under Tuchel, was an unused substitute in the 2-0 win against Newcastle on Monday

He was withdrawn from training on Thursday with a calf lift and is “a big question mark” for the game in Southampton, Tuchel


“I wouldn’t say it’s an injury at the moment it’s risk management,” said Tuchel, citing Pulisic’s injury history, including a hamstring that paused him earlier in the season. “We’re not worried, we’re not worried.” / p>

“The main thing for Christian is to stay positive, keep your head up and like I said before, be ready because he can be a big influence when he starts and he can be a big influence when he comes off the bench with his intensity ”

“He has proven over many weeks that he has the level of a regular Chelsea player to have a huge impact on this club. It is now a challenge to maintain that level and keep improving”

“Absolutely no decisions will be made for the summer,” said Tuchel. “There is simply no time for that at the moment”

Fourth place Chelsea have won four games in a row in the Premier League and on Tuesday against Atlético Madrid in the Champions League
