Enzo Fernandez contributed two goals for Chelsea in the clash against Brighton at Stamford Bridge on Sunday (3/12/2023). Enzo scored the first and last goals for the Blues in each half.
This moment marks Enzo Fernandez’s successful debut on the Premier League goal sheet. It took him 31 matches since his £107 million winter transfer from Benfica to achieve this milestone.
Before the Brighton match, the 2022 World Cup winner had attempted 22 shots without finding the net, more than any other player in the Premier League, according to Opta.

“Thrilled with my first goals in the Premier League in front of our supporters. Come on, Chelsea!” wrote the 22-year-old midfielder on his Instagram social media account.
Overall, Enzo Fernandez has scored three goals for Chelsea in 37 appearances. Another goal was added by Enzo against second-tier Wimbledon in the second round of the English League Cup in August.
“For Enzo, these are his first and second goals in the Premier League. Players always need six months or a season to show their true quality. Why should it be different at Chelsea? I am very happy because different players could score to help the team,” commented Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino on the club’s official website.
