Opinion: Saul Niguez's Poor Debut For Chelsea Proves Premier League Is The Most Difficult League

Saul Niguez debut for Chelsea didn’t quite go as planned. The Atletico Madrid loanee made his first appearance for Chelsea in a Premier League fixture against Aston Villa.

Saul marked his debut for Chelsea with a 3-0 win against Aston Villa. Saul, much to everyone's surprise, made his way to the starting eleven and joined Kovacic in midfield.


But it was not exactly the start Saul would have imagined it to be. The Spanish midfielder seemed loose on the ball and made a few blunders in defense, giving easy possession to the opposition at times. Luckily, those mistakes didn’t cost Chelsea much damage, and eventually, the hosts walked away with easy 3 points.

Saul was, although, replaced at halftime by Jorghino who appeared to be much smoother and more stable on the ball. Saul later even admitted in his Instagram post about his poor performance. It was not the debut that Saul would have had in mind but this is not the end of the day, it's still a long road ahead. It is not easy to compete in the toughest league in Europe.
