USMNT goalkeeper Zack Steffen made his Premier League debut for Manchester City on Sunday's 3-1 win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Steffen had a relatively quiet night as City raced to a three-goal advantage by halftime, conceding a goal in stoppage time to Callum Hudson-Odoi.

City had confirmed that six players in the squad had tested positive for coronavirus but have only identified Gabriel Jesus, Kyle Walker and Eric Garcia.

However, No. 1 choice goalkeeper Ederson also posted on social media that he was self-isolating.

Steffen, 25, joined City in 2019 from Columbus Crew but spent the 2019-20 season on loan at Fortuna Dusseldorf.

He made his Champions League debut in December against Marseille and kept a clean sheet as City won 3-0.

He had also made three Carabao Cup appearances since the start of the season, most recently in the 4-1 win over Arsenal.

Steffen has made 19 appearances for the USMNT, keeping seven clean sheets in total, including one against Wales in November.
