Compilation of Enzo Fernandez's highlights vs Liverpool goes viral, he was incredible

A compilation of Chelsea midfielder Enzo Fernandez's performance in Sunday's 1-1 draw against Liverpool has gone viral.

The Argentinian started in a deeper midfield role for the Blues, effectively marshalling Mauricio Pochettino's side amid the absence of key players.

Fernandez joined Chelsea from Benfica for a British record transfer fee of £106.8 million in January after a successful World Cup campaign with Argentina.

And while the Blues struggled on the whole, the 21-year-old hit the ground running at Stamford Bridge with a series of impressive displays.

Against Liverpool, Fernandez kicked off his side on the right footing with another excellent performance, and was duly named player of the match by Sky Sports co-commentator Gary Neville at the conclusion of the 1-1 draw.

And a compilation of the midfielder's display has gone viral.

Fernandez was involved at both ends of the pitch at Stamford Bridge, breaking up Liverpool attacks while creating chances of his own.

You can see the compilation below.

At one stage, the midfielder can be seen receiving the ball on the halfway line, with his back to goal, before laying the ball off to Raheem Sterling and charging into the penalty area.

Then, on another occasion, the 21-year-old wins the ball back, before carrying it into the attacking half and launching a lofted through ball.

His all-round qualities were on show throughout the game - and Fernandez hopes to be a key player in a surprise Blues title charge this season.

Speaking to Chelsea's official website earlier this week, he admitted: "The main aim this year is to win the Premier League. Now we have a new head coach, you have to say the expectations of us have changed.

"Obviously, when I arrived, everything was difficult, there were lots of changes going on and everything happened so fast for me.

"We want to be an aggressive team that attacks and defends well, that goes into every game to win it, no matter the opponent. We want to dominate every game we're in."
