Unfortunately for him, 33 minutes after coming on, he gave away a costly penalty that allowed Lucas Paqueta to wrap up a 3-1 win for the Hammers.

Considering that Caicedo cost a British transfer record sum of £115million, his torrid introduction to life in London hasn’t gone unnoticed.

Caicedo famously went cold on a previously-agreed move to Liverpool, instead opting to join the Blues, meaning that his shocking start to life under Mauricio Pochettino has been met with a wry smile around Merseyside.

Taking to social media, one Liverpool fan wrote: “Thank God he didn’t come to Liverpool cause I don’t understand how an average player like caicedo cost £115m.”

Another said: “I’d say it’s a shame as a fan of him but as a Liverpool fan, I’m very pleased.”

A third Reds’ supporter said: “Caicedo deserves this for all the pain he made us Liverpool fans feel.”

Another added: “This has been an absolute disasterclass of a debut for Caicedo,” before one final fan said: “After that performance from £115m Caicedo me and Liverpool fans are sleeping well this night.”
