After Bournemouth goalkeeper Neto raced out of his goal to deny an onrushing Raheem Sterling, his clearance found its way to the path Chelsea midfielder Caicedo, who fired a long-range effort into an empty net to send Stamford Bridge into an eruption.

Watch here:

Caicedo grabbed his first goal for Chelsea in style having arrived from Brighton for £115 million ($145.6m) last summer.

Caicedo’s goal was reportedly a 50.5 yards strike, making it the furthest goal scored in a Premier League game since Wayne Rooney's 57.7-yard strike for Everton in November 2017 against West Ham.

Caicedo arrived for a British transfer fee record last summer but had failed to replicate his brilliant showing which made Chelsea fork out a world record to acquire his services for Brighton.
