3 Things Cucurella Did On His Chelsea's Debut That Blew Football Fans Away

The newest member of Chelsea's roster Cucurella made his first appearance for the club yesterday in their first win of the season, a 1-0 triumph against Everton at Goodison Park. This victory was their first of the season. Nevertheless, the following are the three things he did that caused admirers to talk:

1. His Superb Cross To Sterling

When he came on in the 75th minute to replace Koulibaly, he nearly immediately recorded an assist after delivering a beautiful cross to Sterling, but the winger's shot was diverted wide by the defender. Koulibaly was replaced by him.

The Spaniard kept his composure throughout the match, which was vital in Chelsea keeping their advantage till the very end.

2. He Gave The Free Kick To Reece James in An Attempt To Beat The Racism Allegations

The new player did something very extraordinary with the free kick that was granted to Chelsea outside of Everton's 18-yard area when they were given the opportunity to take it. It was only an attempt to beat his racism charges involving Real Madrid's Miliatao, and he offered the free kick to be taken by Reece James. Chelsea fans, who continued to yell his name, immensely welcomed his behavior, and he was hailed by their continuing shouting. Real Madrid Miliatao was named in several of the charges.

3. His 15 accurate passes

Even though he was only on the field for the last 20 minutes of the game, he was still able to complete 15 passes with an accuracy rate of 89 percent. This is an extremely impressive feat considering how little time he had. In spite of this, he was given a cautionary yellow card after kicking the ball away at the conclusion of the match. This was because of his lack of concentration. This took place in the latter stages of the contest.
