Most expensive player of Nigerian descent in Chelsea's history sparkles on PL debut 

Chelsea new signing Noni Madueke made his Premier League debut on Friday night against fellow London side, Fulham at Stamford Bridge which ended on a goalless note. 


The Tottenham Hotspur-reared winger became the most expensive player of Nigerian descent in the history of Chelsea when he joined the Stamford Bridge outfit last month for a guaranteed fee of 35 million euros, 


Former PSV Eidhoven ace Madueke came off the substitute bench in the 46th minute in place of big-money signing Mykhailo Mudryk and had quite an impression with his endeavors.


The 20-year-old started his Chelsea career in a fantastic way as he showed flashes of quality and a lot of skill on the ball. 


2022 World Cup star Enzo Fernandez also made his debut for the FIFA Club World Cup holders who are now in 9th place on the log with 30 points, ahead of Liverpool in 10th place. 


A solid defensive display from Fulham prevented Chelsea from finding the back of the net 


Cottagers center back Tim Ream blocked Fofana's shot on the line while Havertz saw his lob come back off the post.


Carney Chukwuemeka could not make his ninth Premier League appearance on the night as he was left on the bench throughout the entirety of the game.
