Moises Caicedo claims he’s “playing better” after tough start to Chelsea career

Moises Caicedo couldn’t really be under more pressure at Chelsea, given he arrived with a vast £100m+ price tag to play for a team in desperate need of central midfield play.

He’s had some good games and some bad games, and has been pretty lucky to not pick up a couple of red cards along the way. We’ve yet to see him look like half the player he did at Brighton, but in an interview on the official Chelsea site, he insisted he’s on the right path:

“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.”

We’ve certainly seen some better games recently, but we’d be lying if we said we were delighted with his season overall. Plenty of pundits have already cast major doubts over the wisdom of spending such big money on him, and we sympathise with that too.

It’s nice to see him improve and play better – but he’s going to have to go up another couple of gears entirely for us to feel like we haven’t been ripped off a little bit.
