I assume you're referring to Werner. Pulisic came on for him in the 66th


As everyone knows, Werner was a lousy goal scorer (only 6 goals) during the 2020-21 EPL championship/ regular season. However, he had 8 assists, which was 9th in the EPL. And he sometimes does things that aren't noticed & that lead to goals.

A prime example occurred in the CL finals. Werner did not score or assist on the game's only goal (Havertz got the goal in the 42nd), but he played an instrumental part in the goal. Go to the 2:31 mark of the linked video of that goal, which came on a fabulous counter.

Chelsea's GK kicks the ball to Ben Chilwell on the left sideline & he makes a great pass to Mount. Kyle Walker of Man City is caught in no man's land on the pass to Mount, who turns & passes to Havertz, who is breaking for the goal. You'll note that Werner is making a simultaneous run towards the left sideline. In fact, Havertz would have been offside if not for the fact that the Man City player marking Werner keeps Havertz onside. (When I noted that Havertz and Werner played effectively together, I was thinking of plays like this.)

  True, but he didn't score and was subbed out a bit. ** -- PhillyHoo 08/13/2021 05:43AM
