Following a poor run of play, Chelsea will be hopeful that their huge purchasing spree in January can help them climb the table and finish in a higher position.

Fernandez’s Behavior Was Criticized
After Enzo Fernandez’s record-breaking transfer to Chelsea, Benfica president Rui Costa lashed out at the World Cup champion midfielder and questioned his behavior. Fernandez is now playing for Chelsea.

But Costa has recently admitted that he changed his mind about the matter after Fernandez stated unequivocally that he “did not want to continue” working for Benfica.
