Maurizio Sarri off To A Bright Start As New Boy Score On his Debut
Maurizio Sarri starts the season on a good note with an away win over Huddersfield Town earlier.
The former Napoli manager was beaten by Manchester City last week Sunday but his men bounced back from the defeat to record a resounding 3-0 victory over their opponents.
World cup winning star Ngolo Kante was the hero for the Blues as he opened the scoring with a slight touch on the ball from Willian’s cross in the 34th minute of the encounter to give the Blues a 1-0 lead.
New boy Jorginho, who joined the Blues from Napoli, was on the ground to score a brilliant penalty kick to put the scoreline at 2-0 before the end of the first period of the encounter.
As for the world’s most expensive goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga — who moved to the club from Athletic Bilbao, he had a very quiet evening as he was rarely tested by Huddersfield’s strikers throughout the day.
Though the young goalkeeper made an error in the first quarter of the game, he grew in confidence as the match progresses.
Chelsea’s want-away playmaker Eden Hazard was introduced into the game with 14 minutes left on the clock but that was enough for the Belgian to have an impact on the scoresheet.
Hazard put the game beyond Huddersfield’s reach when he team-up with Pedro for the latter’s goal to give Sarri his first win in the League.
