Absolutely outstanding – Chelsea duo praised for their performance against Aston Villa
Manchester United legend Roy Keane has praised Chelsea duo Enzo Fernandez and Moises Caicedo for their performance in midfield in Chelsea’s 3-1 FA Cup victory over Aston Villa on Wednesday night.
“Absolutely outstanding. The two of them dominated that midfield. Villa were very poor but they looked strong, they looked aggressive, their passing was short, their decision-making was excellent,” Keane told ITV Sport.
“They were strong and physical. The two midfielders for Chelsea – outstanding.”
Fernandez provided undoubtedly the moment of the evening with a stunning free-kick from distance to beat fellow countryman Emiliano Martinez in the 54th minute.
On Fernandez’s free-kick, Keane went on: “I can see why the referee gave that free-kick and the strike is just quality.
“You have to put it in the top corner, he’s facing his team-mate who is a brilliant goalkeeper, what a free-kick. Pace, whip.
“As soon as it left his foot you thought it had a great chance. Beautiful.”
