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.
