Watch ‘filthy’ Joao Felix’s nutmeg and run which sent social media wild after Kieran Trippier set up Alvaro Morata in Atletico Madrid win

JOAO FELIX set social media alight with this "filthy" nutmeg in Atletico Madrid's win over Getafe last night.

The £113million summer signing from Benfica, 19, justified every penny of his massive price tag with his first La Liga start for Diego Simeone's side.

And the highlight was this astonishing nutmeg which led to a penalty.

Felix does a stepover before knocking the ball between midfielder Mauro Arambarri's legs and beating off two more on his devastating run.

Twitter lit up in appreciation for the Portuguese teenager, who one said had already replaced Cristiano Ronaldo in La Liga.

Another said: "Possibly the filthiest nutmeg you'll see all season from @joaofelix70."

One user posted: "Joao Felix nutmeg to an incredible run to which he produced a penalty... what a bright future for this kid."

A fellow user wrote: "Joao Felix! That nutmeg! I'm crying."

'HE'S REPLACED RONALDO'

Another said: "Joao Felix sent three players back to their training ground."

One wrote: "Having a player like Joao Felix in your team should be illegal. The kid is a generational talent."

It was former Spurs star Kieran Trippier who made the difference though.

The England right-back assisted Chelsea loanee Alvaro Morata's winning goal.

Trippier, a £20m signing, marked his competitive debut by crossing for Morata to head in after 23 minutes.

Striker Morata then missed the chance to take it 2-0 when he failed to convert the spot kick that resulted from Felix's run.

Despite his brilliance, Simeone said Felix must keep improving.

He said after the game: "They have not left him space in the first half so that he can take advantage of his game.

"But, as an individual, he showed his power and hopefully these situations appear more often.

"He has to keep improving."
