Chelsea Confirmed Lineup vs Huddersfield: Kepa, Jorginho make Premier League debut

12 August, 2018, 06:26 | Author: Brenda Erickson
  • Chelsea midfielder Jorginho

Speaking in an interview with Chelsea FC's website, he said: "I think I will be able to adapt and I find his style, his ideas and how he likes to play very attractive".

Steve Mounie was agonisingly denied by the crossbar as Huddersfield created their fair share of opportunities in the first-half, but the Terriers lacked quality and a bit of fortune in the final third.

Bournemouth won a Premier League opener for the first time in four tries with a 2-0 victory at newly promoted Cardiff City.

The Croat will compete for playing time with N'Golo Kante, Jorginho, Cesc Fabregas, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Danny Drinkwater, and Ross Barkley.

Maurizio Sarri feels Chelsea will continue to improve under his stewardship, but the club's new coach will not aim to repeat his winning formula from Napoli.

When asked how long it could take for his players to be at their best, Sarri surprised many with his response.

Things just aren't working out for Alvaro Morata at Chelsea at the moment.

On the first series of the fourth quarter, he hit fellow rookie Antonio Callaway on third and four for a 54-yard touchdown pass. There are plenty of other big names to watch, including the likes of (potentially) Odell Beckham Jr. and Myles Garrett.

Eyes were obviously on debutants Jorginho and Arrizabalaga and the pair gave excellent accounts of themselves, with the former scoring a cheeky penalty in the first half.

Jorginho followed Sarri from Napoli to Chelsea in the summer and the midfielder doubled the Blues' lead when he converted a penalty after Christopher Schindler fouled Marcos Alonso.

Chelsea keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, signed on Thursday in a record transfer ahead of the deadline, was rarely challenged and did not make his first save until the 20th minute. You can't do that against Chelsea because they will hurt you, and that's exactly what they did.

Unfortunately for Huddersfield and Kongolo, Chelsea managed to score twice before half-time which stretched the defence.

Eden Hazard looks as if he is back with a bang this season.

With Eden Hazard not a guaranteed starter due to his involvement late into the World Cup, many Chelsea fans were hoping Callum Hudson-Odoi would feature in some part after his impressive pre-season. But, the youngster is surprisingly, not even in the matchday squad.

Last season's Europa League winners are now expected to reward Oblak with a new contract which would see his buyout clause raised to an eye-watering €250m.
