You really couldn’t have asked for a better Premier League debut than Jorginho’s on Saturday.
An away 3-0 win – in which you score a gloriously calm penalty and dominate possession to control the game – is every player’s dream.
Having arrived from Napoli with a £57m price-tag on his head, Jorginho proved his worth immediately.
On a weekend where a few players made impacts on debut – such as Naby Keita and Richarlison – Jorginho’s exploits flew under the radar for many.
But, with Maurizio Sarri saying his team will not gel for another three months, Jorginho’s performance bodes well for the Blues.
Chelsea needed to get three points on the board as quickly as possible to ensure the early-season wobbles were alleviated before they took hold. They managed that with aplomb and it will be interesting to see how they perform once Eden Hazard is playing a full 90 minutes again.
Here is what Chelsea fans having been saying about the Italian’s Premier League debut:
Give that man a contract extension
