The last summer transfer window witnessed an intense battle between Chelsea and Liverpool over the signing of Moises Caicedo. With both clubs ready to pay over the odds for the Ecuador international, it was the Blues who eventually won the race. The Stamford Bridge outfit welcomed the coveted midfielder in a summer of massive revamp, which also saw the arrival of a new manager, Mauricio Pochettino. A lot was expected from the Blues following that special summer window.

However, Chelsea were not able to live up to the expectations. They are not even in the top half of the Premier League table, as they struggled to overcome their last season’s woes. On a positive note, the Blues did well in the Carabao Cup, reaching the final of the competition before losing the trophy to Liverpool in heart-breaking fashion. With not long left before the season comes to an end, Chelsea will hope to finish it on a high.

At the beginning, I felt the pressure: Moises Caicedo

Reflecting on his time at Chelsea, Moises Caicedo feels that he felt the pressure at the start of his time at Stamford Bridge, however, he seems to have settled in his new environment currently. “At the beginning, I felt the pressure. In my mind, I wanted to show my best football and why the club paid the money for me. After that, I started to speak with people who helped me understand that if Chelsea signed me it’s because I am worth it. I have kept on playing and I know I have to show my best on the pitch. Of course, I haven’t played every game well and it was tough at the beginning, but now I feel good and feel I am helping the team,” Caicedo, quoted on the club’s website, said.

He added: “I am only thinking about the game and not what people are saying about me. Personally, now I am feeling good. I can see my gains and I am playing better and helping the team. That is important for me because when I don’t play well, I get frustrated. It’s my first season at Chelsea so it’s normal that it took some time and I am learning in every game.”

With time, Caicedo has developed a good partnership with fellow midfielder Enzo Fernandez. Since he is also a South American native-Spanish speaker, it became easier for Caicedo to develop a bond with him on the pitch. The Ecuador international explained how comfortable it is to play alongside the Argentine midfielder. “It’s easy to play with him. We have the same language on the pitch and help each other. We enjoy when we win and we are frustrated when we lose,” he explained.
