1. Joao Felix Showed Class In The Second Half.

A look at Chelsea’s last 8 games shows that Joao Felix started just one game, which was against Nottingham Forest. The Portuguese forward has been relegated to the bench by Frank Lampard. In these 8 games, he did not feature at all on two occasions, he started a game and was used as a substitute five times. However, Joao Felix did more than all Chelsea forwards despite getting introduced into the game in the second. He made a solo run and beat David De Gea with a well-struck shot. Apart from his goal, his touches and movements showed class, and this suggests that Frank Lampard might be wrong about him, and the move to bench him against Manchester United was wrong.
