Joao Felix opened his Chelsea account by getting on the end of a delightful assist from Enzo Fernandez to put his side ahead against West Ham.

WHAT HAPPENED? The Argentina star chipped in a sumptuous pass over the Hammers defence to find Felix in acres of space just yards out. The Portugal international appeared to have all the time in the world as he fired home a well-controlled volley past a helpless Lukasz Fabianski. The goal is Felix’s first in Chelsea Blue, in what was only his second appearance for the club following his three-game suspension.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: The link-up between the two will be a welcome sign to Chelsea fans, who are in need of improving their offensive impetus this campaign. Graham Potter’s side were at fault at the other end of the pitch just 12 minutes later, though, with some weak defending allowing former Blue Emerson Palmieri to turn home from close range to make it 1-1 in an electric first half.

WHAT NEXT FOR CHELSEA? Felix will hope he can continue his fine form in front of goal when the Blues travel to Borussia Dortmund in their Champions League last-16 matchup on Wednesday.

The Portugal international, on loan from Atletico Madrid, was named in the Chelsea line-up after completing his three-match suspension for a red card on his debut against Fulham.

“Having sat and watched three games, he’s already shown the quality he’s got.”

Prior to the goal, Chelsea were very much in the groove while Felix had the ball in the net after his chip hit the post before scoring into an empty net

Joao Felix had a difficult start to life at Chelsea, having made the move from Atletico Madrid in the January transfer window. The Portuguese was sent off on his debut for the Premier League side following a high challenge on Fulham defender Kenny Tete

16min JOÃO FÉLIX GOALLLLLLLLLL!!!

Chelsea set up shop.  Mudryk almost loses it but wins it back with a sliding challenge.  Enzo picks it up, looks up, and picks out Félix at the far post with a curling ball.  Félix times his run to perfection, and his finish is unerring.  1-0, CHELSEA!
