Christian Pulisic has resumed training with Chelsea ahead of a weekend match at winless Newcastle, the English Premier League club said Thursday.
The 23-year-old Pulisic has not featured since Aug. 14, when he scored in Chelsea’s 3-0 win over Crystal Palace to open the league season.
The American forward injured an ankle while on international duty in early September against Honduras — his sixth significant injury in his two-plus years at Chelsea.
The injury was only expected to keep him out for 10 days, but a series of setbacks has kept him out much longer, including missing all the U.S. matches during the October international window.
Chelsea posted a brief update on returning players Pulisic, N’Golo Kante, Andreas Christensen and Cesar Azpilicueta along with photos of them at training.
The Premier League leaders plays Newcastle at St. James’ Park on Saturday.
