Jorginho and N'Golo Kante

Jorginho’s special shin-pads vs Huddersfield & where his mum watched the Chelsea match

Huddersfield 0 – Chelsea 3

There was plenty for Chelsea fans to get excited about in round one of the new Premier League season.

Chelsea bounced back from losing the Community Shield by beating Huddersfield 3-0.

Maurizio Sarri’s first match in the Chelsea dugout could barely have gone any better.

N’Golo Kante volleyed Chelsea into the lead in the first half after good work from Willian down the wing.

A cheeky penalty from Jorginho on his Premier League debut doubled the Blues’ advantage.

Eden Hazard came off the bench in the second half to tee up Pedro for number three.

Jorginho’s special shin-pads

The Huddersfield match allowed Chelsea fans to learn a lot more about summer signing Jorginho.

A defensive midfielder, Jorginho has allowed Kante to play further upfield for the Blues.

We also learned the Jorginho has a picture of his dog on his shin pads.

That will make him an instant fan favourite to all pet owners.

Jorginho’s mum vs Huddersfield

Jorginho’s mum is also making a name for herself around Stamford Bridge.

After her son signed for the Blues, a video went viral of Jorginho’s mum seeing her son’s shirt for sale in the club shop.

She simply couldn’t hold back her emotions.

On Saturday, mama Jorginho was in the crowd at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Rather than sitting in the posh seats, Jorginho’s mum sat with the travelling Chelsea fans.
