Christian Pulisic has admitted he must sharpen up his finishing after Chelsea threw away a lead at Brighton.
The USA forward tormented the Albion defence but spurned three fine chances as Chelsea were held to a 1-1 draw on the south coast on New Yearâs Day.
Cesar Azpilicueta tapped Chelsea into an early lead and Frank Lampardâs men dominated the first hour, only to slip off the pace in the closing stages.
âWe said at half time that we had the chance to kill the game and we just werenât able to,â said Pulisic.
âWe couldnât get the goal and in the end they found an unbelievable goal.
âSo now it is about doing a bit more to keep going, attack and create chances and just have that killer instinct. Just a little bit of that, we are missing that.
âI can do better with that as well. Just being more clinical in the final third, finding the right pass or shot and scoring the goals.Â Thatâs both mental and technical.
âAfter we scored the first goal it was just about continuing and just not stopping there, making it two or three and putting the game to bed.
âWeâve had troubles with that this year and then in the end, they fought until the end, scored a great goal and that is how it goes.â
Chelsea are able to strengthen in the January window with their FIFA transfer ban having been lifted on appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).
The Blues have long admired Leicester left-back Ben Chilwell and have also run the rule over Wilfried Zaha and Jadon Sancho.
Pulisic arrived from Borussia Dortmund in the summer and insisted Chelseaâs current players would welcome extra competition for places should the club dip into the transfer market this month.
âIt is normal that teams look to improve and and if players do come in there is competition, that is how it goes,â said Pulisic.
âSo weâll be ready for that and hopefully weâll have players that come in and want to help us.â
Jahanbakhshâs acrobatic finish capped a fine festive period for Brightonâs Iran striker.
The 26-year-old ended a 20-match Premier League drought with a goal in the 2-0 win over Bournemouth, and struck again to bag the draw with Chelsea.
Brighton boss Graham Potter hailed the clubâs record signing for refusing to let his spirits drop during a tough first year on the south coast.
âAll the credit must go to Ali, itâs not just that it hasnât happened for him under me here,â said Potter.
âIf you ask him and the club, he was here for a year last year and didnât contribute as much as he would like to the team.
âSo to carry on and not get to frustrated where you canât be yourself, that takes a lot of belief. Heâs hugely professional and has worked extremely hard.
âTactically at the start of the season we made it difficult for him to get into the team. But he provides something the other guys havenât got and I like him a lot.â
