160 Billion Enso Fernandez Debut’ Chelsea, 0-0 draw with Fulham…a draw for the second time in a row
Chelsea failed to escape the middle ranks after failing to win two consecutive league games, with Enso Fernandez, who was brought for 160 billion won, making his debut.
Chelsea tied Fulham without scoring in the 22nd round of the 2022/23 Premier League at Stamford Bridge in London on the 3rd. Chelsea ranked ninth (8 wins, 6 draws, 7 losses, 30 points) ahead of Liverpool, who played two less games.
Chelsea, the home team, came out 4-3-3. Kepa Arrizabalaga defended the goal, while Rhys James, Thiagou Silva, Benois Vardyasil and Mark Cucureya defended. Conor Gallagher, Enso Fernandez and Mason Mount stood in the midfield, while Hakeem Ziyesi, Kai Havertz and Mikhailo Moodrik worked together on the front line.
Fulham faced off 4-2-3-1. Bernd Leno put on goalkeeper gloves. Defenders included Antony Robinson, Tim Lim, Issa Dioff and Kenny Tete. Joo Paligna and Harrison Reed were in the third line, while Willian, Andreas Pereira and Bobby Reid were in the second line. Aleksandar Mitrovic was aiming to score from the front line.
Fulham took the opportunity to score the first goal. In the 25th minute of the first half, Pereira hit a shot aimed at the corner of the goal, but Kepa blocked it.
Chelsea also had Havertz’s one-on-one situation with the goalkeeper at the end of the first half, but a chip shot hit the post and failed to lead to a goal.
Chelsea also had a crucial scoring opportunity in the second half. Popana tried to shoot over the goalkeeper with a replacement dart, but Lim blocked it with his body.
The game ended 0-0 as both teams hit 22 shots combined and did not score.
Meanwhile, Enzo Fernandez, the most popular man on the day, made his Chelsea debut.
Enso Fernandez wore a Chelsea uniform for a fee of 121 million in the winter transfer market. As a result, Jack Grillish (Manchester City) broke the record for the highest transfer fee of 100 million pounds in English football history.
Chelsea fans’ expectations were considerable as he led his country Argentina to its first victory in 36 years with his outstanding performance at last year’s Qatar World Cup.
Enso provided stable passes with a pass success rate of 85% and a long pass success rate of 86% during full-time play, and recorded the most in both teams with five tackles. The winning rate of the ball competition was 73%, the air ball competition was 100%, and the recovery was 10 times.
However, his individual performance faded as the team failed to win.
