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.
Very happy for my debut in Premier League, my first goal and even more happy for the 3 points that were the most important !!!⚽️💪🏻🤙🏻 #premierleague #comeonchelsea #chelseafc #JF5 ————————————————— Muito feliz pela estreia na Premier League, pelo primeiro gol e ainda mais feliz pelos 3 pontos conquistados que era o mais importante!!! ⚽️💪🏻🤙🏻 #premierleague #vamoschelsea ————————————————— Molto felice per il debutto in Premier League, per il gol ed ancora più contento per i 3 punti che era la cosa più importante!!! ⚽️💪🏻🤙🏻

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.
Quando você percebe que todo esforço valeu a pena e que não era um sonho SÓ SEU 😍 #amordemae❤️ ——————————————————————— Quando te ne accorgi che tutto lo sforzo ne è valsa la pena e che non era un sogno SOLTANTO TUO 😍 #amoredimamma❤️ ——————————————————————— when you realize that all the efforts were worth it and that the dream wasn’t just yours 😍
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.
