EPL: What I expect from Joao Felix – Chelsea manager Potter

Chelsea manager, Graham Potter, has said he expects Joao Felix to make “a difference in the final third” for the team.

Felix has joined the Blues from Atletico Madrid on loan until the end of the season.

The 23-year-old could be in contention to make his debut at Fulham on Thursday night

Potter said about Felix: “He’s a quality player. He can make a difference in the final third. He is young but has a lot of really good experience. He’s a quality player that brings everyone a lift.”

Asked whether the transfer was planned, Potter responded: “We’ve been aware of it for a while. The injuries have maybe sharpened the focus of the club.

“It is nice to get him here and training today. We will see him for the game on Thursday.

“From a physical perspective, he can go in. It’s always a little bit of an unknown period as he is going from one club to another, but that’s on a case-to-case basis.”
