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 with everything to do against the 11 men of Fulham.
