Joao Felix equals his goal contributions tally at Chelsea in just 130 minutes with Barca

Joao Felix has matched his entire Chelsea output in just 130 minutes of football for Barcelona.

The Portuguese forward netted twice in his first Champions League game for Barcelona, helping his new club to a 5-0 win over Belgian side Royal Antwerp.

In his first outing, against Real Betis in LaLiga, he opened the scoring in a 5-0 win, which takes his goal tally to three in two games.

However, with a further assist for Robert Lewandowski against Antwerp, Felix has now equalled his production on loan at Chelsea last season where he scored four goals in 20 games, or for comparison, 1157 minutes.

Felix’s loan arrival at Stamford Bridge from Ateltico Madrid in January was said to have cost the club a whopping £11million in fees and wages for just six months of action.

That was dramatically shortened when the 23-year-old was sent off in his debut against Fulham, further piling the misery on Chelsea in their second-worst ever Premier League campaign.

There were moments of magic from the fourth most expensive player of all time, but not enough to keep him at the club, despite a number of flirtations.

Now though, with Chelsea struggling this season, particularly in front of goal, they may be having second thoughts about letting go of Barcelona’s new Portuguese maestro.
