Premier League Moises Caicedo reflects on first season since moving to Chelsea

Moises Caicedo has discussed his first season with Chelsea so far, admitting there have been periods when the pressure has made things difficult, but learning to control his frustration is helping him to improve.

This season has been a period of adaptation for Caicedo, as he settles into life at a new club with new team-mates since his move from Brighton & Hove Albion to Chelsea in August.

More than his new surroundings in the capital, though, the 22-year-old has conceded it was the increased pressure that comes with representing a big club like Chelsea which was the biggest challenge he has had to overcome during his debut campaign at Stamford Bridge.

“At the beginning, I felt the pressure,’ admits Caicedo. ‘In my mind, I wanted to show my best football and why the club paid the money for me,” he said, adding: “After that, I started to speak with people who helped me understand that if Chelsea signed me it’s because I am worth it. I have kept on playing and I know I have to show my best on the pitch.

“Of course, I haven’t played every game well and it was tough at the beginning, but now I feel good and feel I am helping the team. I am only thinking about the game and not what people are saying about me.”
