Chelsea forward Christian Pulisic featured in a 7-1 friendly win over Queens Park Rangers on Sunday as Frank Lampard's side stepped up their preparations for the Premier League restart.

Pulisic, 21, has not played a competitive match since the 1-1 draw against Brighton & Hove Albion on New Year's Day.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Billy Gilmour scored twice each while Mason Mount, Willian and Olivier Giroud also got on the scoresheet as Chelsea improved on a 1-0 victory over Reading in a similar warm-up friendly last week.

N'Golo Kante, who made a return to full contact training on Tuesday after expressing concerns over his safety due to the coronavirus outbreak, started the game against Championship side QPR.

Lampard's side are fourth in the league with 48 points from 29 games ahead of the resumption of the season on Wednesday following the coronavirus disruption.

Chelsea are scheduled to face Aston Villa away next Sunday in their first game back.
