Enzo Fernandez (Chelsea) made an embarrassing mistake.
Chelsea lost 0-2 in the 25th round of the 2022-23 season English Premier League (EPL) against Tottenham held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the 26th at 10:30 pm (Korean time). Chelsea, who suffered two consecutive defeats, remained in 10th place with 31 points (8 wins, 7 draws, 9 losses).
Chelsea led the game from the first half, but could not attack Tottenham’s defense. The existing offensive power problem continued in the match against Tottenham, and the frustrating game continued. At the end of the first half, Hakim Ziyech received a red card for punching Emerson,스포츠토토 but fortunately it was corrected to a yellow card as a result of video review (VAR).
Eventually, Chelsea conceded in the first minute of the second half. It was caused by a fatal mistake by Enzo, who started the match. Enzo kicked the ball away from inside the penalty box with his left foot. But he didn’t get the ball far and the skip near the box intercepted it. Skip attempted a mid-range shot with his right foot, and the ball shook the net.
Chelsea even allowed an additional goal in the 36th minute of the second half. Tottenham won 2-0 when Son Heung-min’s corner kick was connected by Eric Dyer and Harry Kane finished. Chelsea, who suffered two consecutive defeats, remained in 10th place with 31 points (8 wins, 7 draws, 9 losses).
Enzo moved to Chelsea from Benfica through the transfer window last winter. Chelsea invested £106.8 million (approximately 170 billion won) to reinforce the midfield. This was the highest transfer fee in the English Premier League (EPL). Enzo immediately came forward as Chelsea’s main resource, but in the match against Tottenham, he provided an excuse for conceding a point due to a collapsed mistake.
According to the UK’s ‘The Sun’, Chelsea fans criticized Enzo’s play with reactions such as “I don’t know what Enzo did” and “It’s a more serious defense than Jorginho”.
