Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic came from the bench to help Chelsea secure the massive three points at Villa Park after the Blues had gone behind in the game.

Speaking after the game, Pulisic was asked about the signing of Timo Werner, and the American was pleased to have such quality added to the team.

Pulisic said: “We already have a really strong team with very good players.

“To add guys like that is incredible. We’re focused on this season right now but we’re also excited for what’s to come.”

Chelsea’s win put the Blues five points clear in fourth place ahead of Manchester United, and Pulisic who scored five minutes after coming on for Ruben Loftus-Cheek, was pleased to have helped his side.

He added: “I’m really happy I was able to come on and help the team. The manager just asked me to go in and help us win the game. I’m happy I was able to do that. I’m not sure I hit it perfectly but thankfully I got enough on it to steer it in.

“Obviously it’s very different with no fans but the team brought good energy and finished really strong to get a good result.”
