‘He did well’ – Mauricio Pochettino drops verdict on Moises Caicedo after nightmare Chelsea debut

Published

Mauricio Pochettino gave a surprisingly positive verdict on Moises Caicedo’s nightmare debut for Chelsea.Chelsea paid a British record transfer fee of £115 million to sign Caicedo from Brighton last week, but the midfielder endured a debut to forget. The 21-year-old looked rusty after coming off the bench during Chelsea’s 3-1 defeat to West Ham on Sunday, and conceded the penalty for the Hammers’ third goal, scored by Lucas Paqueta.

When asked about Caicedo’s debut to forget, Pochettino told reporters after the match: “He did well. Many positive things. Last minute we conceded a goal so we can’t say nothing          The loss was far from Caicedo’s fault, with Chelsea looking disjointed at the London Stadium. The result followed a 1-1 draw with Liverpool on the opening weekend of the Premier League season.Caicedo will hope to bounce back from a disappointing debut when Chelsea host newly promoted Luton Town at Stamford Bridge on Friday. Fellow new midfield signing Romeo Lavia could also feature.
