Chelsea joins Manchester City for an all-England Champions League final to be played May 29 in Istanbul.
Pulisic, the U.S. star, flashed his poise and patience deep in the penalty area, paralyzing the goalkeeper between him and the near post. He waited for teammate Mason Mount to cut into position, then delivered the cross.
Mount stabbed it into the net, and after almost 90 nervy minutes at Stamford Bridge, with tensions rising after each squandered chance by the hosts and each foray by the visitors, the Blues were home free: a 2-0 victory for a 3-1 aggregate triumph and a berth in the May 29 championship game against Manchester City in Istanbul.
