Joao Felix draws Chelsea legend comparisons during debut vs Fulham

Chelsea’s supporters have flooded to social media on Thursday evening, to respond to the early efforts of new signing Joao Felix.

Hitman Felix, of course, has taken his place front and centre in the headlines over the last couple of hours.

This comes after the on-loan Atletico Madrid man, just days on from his arrival, was afforded a first stating berth in Chelsea colours in the club’s meeting with capital rivals Fulham.

And though his new side, as a collective, have toiled thus far en route to a one-goal deficit, Felix is one to have drawn plenty of praise.

Picking up pockets of space between the lines, the Portuguese has caused the Fulham backline plenty of problems courtesy of clever runs and some gorgeous first touches.

In turn, some of a Chelsea persuasion have been unable to contain their excitement, already going as far as to draw comparisons between the latest addition to Graham Potter’s squad, and club icon Eden Hazard:
