Chelsea new signing, Jorginho kicked off his career at Stamford Bridge with a goal as the Blues defeated Huddersfield 3-0  at the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday.

N’Golo Kante, surprisingly was on target for the Blues as well as they kicked off the 2018/2019 campaign with a win.

The Blues took the lead just 34 minutes into the game as Willian cuts inside from the left flank and fires a dangerous cross into the penalty area, where Kante unleashes a slightly scuffed shot that bounces past Hamer and into the far corner.

Watch Kante’s goal….

It was a good play by Willian, who did well to get a cross into the box. Huddersfield won’t be pleased with their defending, mind, as they left far too much space available before Hamer was easily wrong-footed.

After a period on the back foot, Chelsea work the ball around well and push forward on a dangerous attacking move. Alonso breaks into the box and looks to shoot after linking up nicely with Barkley, but was fouled by Schindler and the referee immediately points to the spot, just 9 minutes after the first goal.

Schindler was also shown a yellow card for his poorly timed challenge on Alonso

Jorginho steps up and calmly slots a low shot into the bottom right-hand corner of the net to double Chelsea’s lead.

80 minutes on the clock, the Blues made it 3-0. Hazard embarked on a wonderful run through the middle of the pitch before poking the ball over to Pedro. The Spaniard then breaks into the box and nonchalantly chips a lovely strike over the onrushing Hamer and into the back of the net.

Watch the goal

Great start for the Blues!!
