‘Enso-Felis joint goal’ Chelsea draw with West Ham 1-1… Maintain 9th place

Chelsea couldn’t choose a game against West Ham United. They are winless in their last 3 league matches. Enso Fernandez and João Felix, two transfer students’ joint goals, took the lead, but could not keep the lead.

Chelsea drew 1-1 in an away game in the 23rd round of the 2022-2023 English Premier League (EPL) against West Ham held at the London Stadium on the 11th at 9:30 pm (Korean time).

Chelsea, who had previously been unable to decide the match against Liverpool (0-0) and Fulham (0-0), only gained one point in three consecutive games. With 31 points (8 wins, 7 draws and 7 losses), they maintained 9th place. West Ham, the remaining Maginot line, has risen to 15th place (5 wins, 5 draws, 12 losses, 20 points) with three consecutive undefeated games (1 win, 2 draws).

Chelsea overcame the momentum with two transfer students recruited through the transfer market last winter scoring a ‘joint goal’. In the 16th minute of the first half, Enso delivered a sharp pass to the space behind the defense, and Felix, who received it, shook the net calmly. 바카라사이트

Enso, who is also the main player in Argentina’s last World Cup victory in Qatar, is a midfielder who transferred from Benfica (Portugal) to Chelsea last month for a whopping 121 million euros (about 164.2 billion won), the highest transfer fee ever in the EPL. Felix also moved to Chelsea on loan from Atletico Madrid (Spain) last month. Both Enso and Felix accumulated their first attack points after transferring side by side.

Chelsea, however, did not hold on to this lead for long. In the 28th minute of the first half, a cross from the side was headed by Jarrod Bowen, and Emerson Palmieri rushed to the goal and shook Chelsea’s net. Emerson, who moved to West Ham last summer after playing for Chelsea, refrained from goal celebrations after scoring, showing courtesy toward his former team.

After a one-on-one confrontation, both teams fought to break the balance, but they seldom gained income. West Ham put in Danny Ings and Flynn Downs, Chelsea put Hakim Ziyech and Mason Mount in the middle of the second half, but there was no turnaround.

Chelsea maintained around 70% of the ball possession and led the game, but failed to break the lead. The bad luck of not getting a penalty kick was overlapped with the opponent’s handball. West Ham also failed to make a shot to widen the gap with the relegation zone, with goals canceled by VAR. In the end, the match ended in a 1-1 draw. Both teams shared 1 point each.
