Arrived on loan this winter with the Blues from Atlético Madrid, the Portuguese striker made his debut with his new formation yesterday in a late match of the 7th day against Fulham. Unfortunately this first by Joao Félix was nightmarish with a red card received in the 58th minute of play following an uncontrolled tackle.
We had a better start at a new club 😭

This exit from the former Benfica member proved to be detrimental for the Blues who lost in the end 2 goals to 1. Willian opened the scoring in the 25th minute before Koulibaly equalized in the second half. But Carlos Vinicius will offer the victory to the Cottagers who chain a 4th success in a row and climb to 6th place with 31 points on the clock. For its part, Chelsea signs a second consecutive setback and ranks 10th with 25 points.
