Pulisic, 21, drove the center of the pitch and pushed a pass to Mason Mount on the left. He then swerved left then right to meet Olivier Giroud’s lay off, darting past a wary Kieran Tierney.

He finished the play with a cut shot to the other side of a diving Emiliano Martinez, the Blues going up 1-0 before the clock hit 5:00.

It’s his 11th goal for Chelsea across all competitions and first in the FA Cup.
