The Young Player Award winner of the Fifa World Cup shared the news on his social media handle. Chelsea fans were delighted to see a more mature side of their young midfielder. Enzo Fernandez wrote in an Instagram post:

Benjamin Fernandez, 26/10/23. I love you forever.

He expressed his affection while also sharing some intimate pictures of him and his daughter at the hospital.

He has been struggling with a recent muscle injury and now personal reasons. The Blues missed him for their fixture against Brentford on the weekend. It marked the first match that he would be missing ever since his arrival at Stamford Bridge. It just goes down to showcase how important he has become at Chelsea for Mauricio Pochettino. He will be beaming to perform even better the next time he features, probably dedicating a goal to his child.

Chelsea suffer against Brentford

Chelsea couldn’t score despite dominating, and Pochettino urged improved decision-making and confidence in finishing. The loss at Stamford Bridge marked Chelsea’s continued struggles with just one win in 13 home matches.

Thomas Frank, Brentford’s manager, acknowledged Chelsea’s 1st-half dominance but praised his team’s 2nd-half defense. Their win pushed them past Chelsea in the Premier League. Chelsea faces a challenging schedule ahead with games against Tottenham, Manchester City, and Man United, testing their quest for a higher league position.
