Pat Nevin was left blown away by a piece of skill from Enzo Fernandez in Chelsea’s draw against Everton.
The Blues had to settle for a point in the weekend’s 1-1 league draw at home to Everton, but there was another eye-catching performance from Chelsea’s No.5.
Fernandez, who’s now linked up with Argentina during the international break, impressed yet again in the centre of the park.
The 22-year-old showed off his usual array of forward passing and robustness in the midfield.
Nevin singled out Fernandez after his latest Chelsea display.
In particular, he loved the incredible flick from the Argentine to dribble past Everton’s Dwight McNeil, who ended up fouling him on the edge of the box.
“The morning after the Everton game I was still looking at slow-motion replays of the scissor turn that Enzo did in the first half that led to a free-kick outside the box. It also left me open-mouthed and the defender with twisted blood. Enzo had plenty of other good moments but that was bordering on unstoppable as a trick. The more I watched it the more complicated and impressive it was,” Nevin wrote for the club’s official website.
Fernandez looks the complete package on a football pitch, someone who can offer something in both halves.
Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink recently called him “very aggressive and technically very good”, which is an accurate description.
He brings a certain flair and creativity to Chelsea from the midfield, and we think we may see even more of that from him once N’Golo Kante is playing with him.
