Christian Pulisic scored his first UEFA Champions League for Chelsea, capping a strong performance with a goal that helped the Blues take a valuable road point in Wednesday’s 2-2 draw at Valencia.
The U.S. Men’s National Team star put Chelsea in front with his quick-thinking finish, but Valencia found an equalizer that forced the Blues to return to England with a draw.
Pulisic, who has made seven straight starts for Chelsaea, now has six goals in all competition for the Premier League side. Chelsea sits third in the group heading into its Matchday 6 date with Lille.
A win will see the Blues advance to the Champions League Round of 16, while a draw could help Chelsea advance if Ajax defeats Valencia in Amsterdam.
Chelsea returns to action on Saturday with a home clash with fellow London Club West Ham United.
