As Chelsea made a flying start to the new Premier League season with a win away at Huddersfield, plenty of accolades descended on the new midfield signing Jorginho despite a difficult opening half.
Chelsea kicked off their new Premier League season with a 3-0 victory away at Huddersfield. N’Golo Kante opened up the scoring with a simple sidefoot 34 minutes into the match before new signing Jorginho struck from the penalty spot just before the break.
In his time, Michael Essien was quite simply a behemoth in the middle of the park. Emerging from a class of hard-nosed yet classy midfielders which permeated the fabric of the English top-flight in the early 2000s, the Ghanaian played a major part in the establishment of Chelsea as a domestic powerhouse in England.
His exquisite first touch permitted a strike on goal but as the Lyon keeper smothered it handily, N’Golo Kante’s sense of responsibility kicked in. Even before unleashing the thumbs up sign for the chance’s creator Jorginho, he was already jogging back, heads down, as if to mask a certain unease, perhaps even embarrassment, at being inside the Blues box.
New Chelsea signing Mateo Kovacic has admitted he sought advice from Luka Modric, who played for Tottenham Hotspur as a midfielder, regarding the England top-flight as well as life in London.
Centreback Matt Miazga has joined French club Nantes on a season-long loan from Chelsea, who have included an option for the Ligue 1 outfit to make the move permanent at the end of the campaign.

The Community Shield season opener is just around the corner and Chelsea will be keen to take their chance on securing an early trophy under new manager Maurizio Sarri. The Italian coach only arrived at the club three weeks ago, yet judging from the Blues’ pre-season performances, it seems the players at his disposal have taken his footballing philosophy to heart.
The upcoming Premier League season is just around the corner for Chelsea. Under a new regime led by Italian schemer Maurizio Sarri, the Blues’ preparations are well underway. The club hierarchy is keen to support the new manager with a fresh batch of recruits, yet the arrivals have been relatively slow, with Chelsea missing out on a couple of transfer targets, especially ones viewed to provide competition in the striker role for Alvaro Morata and co.
Maurizio Sarri has revealed he looks forward to having a conversation with Willian after conveying his displeasure at the Brazilian’s late return to Chelsea following the World Cup.
Antonio Rudiger has expressed his frustration at the carelessness of Chelsea in possession, while also saying the Blues should have been more ruthless in finishing following the club’s penalty shootout loss against London rivals Arsenal in Dublin.

Chelsea have offered midfielder N’Golo Kante an improved contract in a bid to convince the World Cup winner to stay at Stamford Bridge and reject the advances of Paris Saint-Germain.
When Chelsea won their most recent league title in the 2016-2017 season, David Luiz played a vital role in the Blues’ success. Then manager Antonio Conte positioned him in the middle of a back three where the 31-year-old not only excelled in defence but also in attack.
David Luiz has showered Chelsea teenager Ethan Ampadu with accolades, calling the academy prospect a “youngster who is already a man”.
Callum Hudson-Odoi has been relishing the opportunity to play under Maurizio Sarri, even if the new Blues manager has revealed the talented youngster may not spend a lot of time on the pitch in the upcoming Premier League season.
If rumours are to be believed, it appears there are a lot of clubs interested in signing the Brazilian winger Bernard, who is currently a free agent after leaving Shakhtar Donetsk following the expiration of his contract with the Ukrainian club.
With Thibaut Courtois reportedly on the verge of a big-money move to Real Madrid in the current transfer window, Chelsea have been forced to search for a suitable goalkeeper that can fill in the big Belgian’s shoes should he decide to finally make the switch to Spain after a long-standing love affair with the La Liga giants.
Ross Barkley contends Chelsea can look forward to an exciting season ahead under the tutelage of new manager Maurizio Sarri.
Former Blues favourite John Terry has spurned reports of his retirement from professional football, saying he is considering all options on the table ahead of the upcoming season. Terry left Stamford Bridge to sign a one-year deal with Championship club Aston Villa last summer but following the Clarets’ failed bid to return to the English top flight, he has decided not to have his contract extended.
The arrival of Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea inevitably starts a revolution at Chelsea. In his first interview as Blues manager, Sarri emphasized his desire to bring fun and enjoyment both to the players and the Stamford Bridge support with his preferred playing style.
Cesc Fabregas has revealed his efforts in convincing Eden Hazard to rebuff the advances of Real Madrid and stay at Stamford Bridge.
