Pulisic assists on Havertz stunner for Chelsea vs Salzburg (VIDEO)

Handed a rare start for Chelsea, U.S. men’s national team star Christian Pulisic made sure to have a hand in the outcome.

Pulisic assisted on Kai Havertz’s spectacular winner in the 2–1 victory, which secured Chelsea’s place in the Champions League knockout stage with one group match to spare. It completed a furious turnaround for Chelsea, which had one point from its first two matches (at Dinamo Zagreb, home vs. Salzburg) before sweeping AC Milan home and away.

In Salzburg, the Blues led on Mateo Kovačić’s strike after a failed clearance, only to concede to Junior Adamu three minutes into the second half. That set the stage for Chelsea, which had been denied repeatedly by Salzburg goalkeeper Philipp Köhn, to seize the three points. Pulisic, who operated on the right side opposite Raheem Sterling on the day, drew three defenders before turning and laying off a short cross to Havertz. The German international settled before curling a left-footed blast under the crossbar and in for the winner. The assist was Pulisic’s eighth of his career in the Champions League.
