See what Chelsea midfielder Saul Niguez has to say about his debut match for Chelsea against Aston Villa in the premier league.
Chelsea midfielder Saul Niguez has reflected on his debut
performance for the Blues over the weekend.
Recall that Saul, who joined the Blues on loan from the
Spanish side Atletico Madrid, was given a chance to start
for Chelsea during the game vs Aston Villa on Saturday.
Although the Blues won the game by a 1-0 scoreline, Saul’s
performance was below expectation.
He played in the first half, and the Blues coach, Thomas
Tuchel, was left with no option but to take him off at
halftime and bring on Jorginho in the second half.
The 26-year-old midfielder committed many mistakes,
including giving the ball away too many times, failing to
press and dallying in possession and being caught out.
In many of the cases, he was saved by Eduoard Mendy and
“Wasn’t the expected debut,” Saul wrote in a caption on
social media, along with a photo of him with his new
“Really happy with my first game and victory with the team.
Incredible to see Stamford Bridge full of Blues,” he added.
It is not sure if Tuchel will give him a start in the Blues UCL
game on Tuesday.
