Joao Felix shown red card for nasty challenge on Chelsea debut against Fulham as Premier League career begins in disaster

Joao Felix lasted just under an hour into his Chelsea debut against Fulham on Thursday before being shown a straight red card for a nasty tackle.

WHAT HAPPENED?: Kenny Tete was on the receiving end of a high challenge from the loanee, who started the game despite only signing from Atletico Madrid a day earlier. Chelsea had pulled one back through Kalidou Koulibaly just after the break following Willian’s first-half opener against his former club, before Felix signed his debut off in disastrous fashion, leaving his new side in trouble.
