Chelsea went winless, but midfielder Enso Fernández, who set the record for the highest transfer fee in the league, is proving his worth.
On the 11th (Korean time), West Ham and Chelsea, who played round 23 of the 2022-2023 English Premier League (EPL), drew 1-1 at the London Stadium in London, England. West Ham, who is in danger of relegation, became 5 wins, 5 draws and 12 losses, and Chelsea, who was in a hurry to jump to the top, missed victory and became 6 wins, 7 draws and 7 losses. 먹튀검증
In the midst of a draw due to poor offensive tactics, Fernandez’s performance shone. Fernandes scored his first assist for Chelsea in the 16th minute with a surprise right-footed pass to João Felix.
Also, Fernandez was first on the team in most indicators related to midfield dominance. The number of passes completed (84), possession secured (7), and tackles completed (3) were all first on the team. It means that Fernandez took on the role of diligently turning the pass, creating a scoring opportunity with a decisive pass, winning the ball that fell without the owner, and stealing the opponent’s ball directly.
Fernandez contributed to Argentina’s victory at the ‘2022 Qatar World Cup’ and received a love call from Chelsea as soon as he became a world-class midfielder. Fernandez, who belonged to Benfica at the time, transferred to Chelsea through the transfer market in January, and the transfer fee of 120 million euros (approximately 162.8 billion won) is a new EPL record. It is also the world record for the winter transfer market.
The struggle to prove the value of the transfer fee, which was too high, will continue in the future, but Fernandez’s performance itself is unsurpassed.
