  • HAVERTZ!!! 1-0 CHELSEA! The Blues make their early pressure tell! Moments after Guaita does well to deny Pulisic from close range, he is unable to keep out Havertz. Receiving the ball in the box, the German international gets the ball onto his left foot, before neatly bending a shot into the far corner.

  • PULISIC!!! 2-0! Chelsea are flying! Following a stunning move, Havertz turns provider by cutting the ball back to Pulisic, who takes a touch before ramming a ferocious shot past the helpless Guaita.
