Pat Nevin: Loic Remy will relish being part of Chelsea side

Loic Remy

Given the opportunities Chelsea created against Everton, Pat Nevin thinks new signing Loic Remy will relish being part of the side.

Former Chelsea and Everton player Pat Nevin has said there will have been one player who would have loved to have taken part in Chelsea's 6-3 win over the Toffees at Goodison Park.

Loic Remy signed for Chelsea the day after and Nevin believes the Frenchman will have liked what he saw from the Blues going forward, as the side created plenty of chances to rack up the goals at the home of the side that finished fifth in the Premier League last season.

In his column for the Chelsea website, Nevin said: "Maybe the only player with a slight momentary flicker of a grimace on his face at the weekend would have been Loic; brought in to score goals and his side hits six away from home against a top side. Nonetheless the positives outweigh the negatives even for him; he will be thinking, ‘I fancy getting on the end of some of those chances we created.'"

Chelsea have signed a striker with a decent goalscoring record in the Premier League from last season, as he got 16 goals for Newcastle United, but he is likely to be the third choice striker at the Blues following the departure of Fernando Torres to Milan on loan. 

Diego Costa has shown his credentials by scoring four goals in his first three Premier League games whilst Didier Drogba looks as though he will be first in line should Costa be unavailable for any games. 

But Chelsea showed their attacking ability on Saturday evening, and any forward who has a habit of finding the back of the net will be relishing lining up alongside his teammates.
