Tammy Abraham and Ross Barkley’s goals were all Frank Lampard’s Chelsea side needed to outrun Barcelona 2-1 in a pre-season friendly in Japan.
Abraham opened the scoring for the blues with a neat first-half finish after rounding the goalkeeper, and substitute Barkley curled in a second late on.
While Ivan Rakitic struck in injury time for Barcelona with powerful drive to earn a respectable result.
Antoine Griezmann made his debut for the Spanish giants Nd showed some good touches and linked up well with Ousmane Dembele, who is reportedly set to leave Barcelona this summer, but never really troubled Kepa in the Chelsea goal.
Pulisic puts on a good show as Blues youngsters was impressive on a first start for the Blues and the 20-year-old American forward caught the eye with his pace and trickery.
He got the better of the Barcelona backline on a number of occasions, breezing past defenders to set up a couple of chances, although his finishing failed to match the rest of his game.
Meanwhile, Mason Mount, who played under Lampard on loan at Derby last season where he scored 14 goals, did not look out of place.
