Arsenal legend Lee Dixon has described Enzo Fernandez’s goal in Chelsea’s 3-1 FA Cup victory over Aston Villa as world-class.

“He’s completely dominated the first half in that midfield and this is absolutely world class,” Dixon said on ITV.

“That is a world class goalkeeper who gets a palm to it and can’t keep it out, it’s almost behind him when he gets there with his glove.

“Almost inch perfect, but good enough. Him and Caicedo in that midfield have been a real strong point of this Chelsea team and he just caps it all off with an absolute worldie free kick.

“He picked the ball up straight way and put it down. Two or three other players had a little pick up, moving the ball, but there was only one taker. He stayed constant, and he’s eyeing that top corner up and when he came to deliver, absolutely word perfect.”
