Things are going from bad to worse at Chelsea. Joao Félix has been hunted down as a lifesaver in rush hour. The young Portuguese was immediately allowed to appear by Potter, but was promptly shown a red card in his first Premier League match for a brutal tackle. To make matters worse, Chelsea were defeated by rivals Fulham.
It’s not ex-Chelsea star Willian’s goal or embarrassing defeat at Fulham that will fill the headlines tomorrow. One of the most notable debuts in the Premier League.
Before the hour mark, new acquisition Joao Félix had a red cardboard shoved under his nose. the reason? bold treatment. The Portuguese put his foot on his opponent’s leg.
For example, the striker – who is on loan at Chelsea from Atletico Madrid – is immediately good for setting a record. He is the first player to leave the field on his Premier League debut.
His manager Graham Potter could pull a hair all the way back, because after more than 10 minutes the 10-man Chelsea swallowed the goal 2-1. Then another drama in London. This time with a Portuguese star.
