Former Chelsea midfielder Joe Cole has insisted Joao Felix will be a success at the club despite being sent off on his Premier League debut against Fulham.
Felix was shown a straight card in the second half of the Blues’ 2-1 defeat at Craven Cottage.
Ex-Blues star Willian gave Fulham the lead before Kalidou Koulibaly equalized two minutes after the break.
Felix, who completed a loan move from Atletico Madrid earlier in the week, was shown a straight red card for a nasty lunge on Kenny Tete.
But Cole had seen enough to be impressed by Felix.
He told BT Sport: “I thought Joao Felix was brilliant tonight."
“I’ve seen enough to know he’s going to be a good signing for Chelsea."
“He showed his ability and personality, but that moment of madness changed the game." "Felix showed signs he can make a difference in a Chelsea shirt.”
