Loads of Chelsea fans have been giving their verdict on the opening day win at Huddersfield, and they can’t quite believe how good Jorginho was.
It was a weird summer for Chelsea, as a few weeks into the transfer window the club was in crisis.
Fast-forward a few months, and Maurizio Sarri is already working his magic, Thibaut Courtois has been replaced by one of the brightest young keepers in world football, and best of all they’ve hijacked a world class player away from Manchester City.
Jorghino was absolutely key in Sarri’s incredible Napoli side, and it’s already looking like the move to steal him from under Pep Guardiola’s nose was a master stroke from the new Blues’ boss.
The little Italian bossed the game alongside N’Golo Kante, and capped it off with one of the coolest penalties you’re ever likely to see.
The 26 year-old, who joined for around £50m back in July, completed a remarkable 94 per cent of his passes, and also chipped in defensively with two tackles and five clearances.
Sarri’s system will be hugely dependant on the little midfield maestro this season, and if Saturday’s 3-0 win was anything to go by, it’s going to be one huge success story.

Aside from his goal, I think Jorginho is going be brilliant for us. Class footballer.

In Hazard and Jorginho, we might just have the two coolest penalty takers in world football right now.

Great win to start the season! Kanté and Jorginho were outstanding. Still work to do but Sarriball is on a good way 🔵

Jorginho and Kante were immense today, not only will they give the defence good protection, they also were getting forward. Kante much more advsnced than last season. They rarely put a pass wrong and opponents will find it tough to get the ball
