American Christian Pulisic came in as a sub for struggling Chelsea and immediately turned to the tide in the match.
With Chelsea trailing Aston Villa 1-0, Pulisic was subbed in for a wildly ineffective Ruben Loftus-Cheek at the 55 minute mark. Less than five minutes later, Pulisic buried a long cross in from Cesar Azpilicueta to level the match.

Azpilicueta added another assist two minutes later, as Olivier Giroud put Chelsea up for good 2-1.
The win gives Chelsea 51 points. They’re just 3 behind third-place Leicester. They are now five points clear of fifth place Manchester United.
