New Chelsea star Jorginho has an fantastic penalty routine

The ex-banker is known for employing a rigid 4-3-3 system and has so far demonstrated his enthusiasm to bring that system to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea FC will be aiming to at least break back into the top four this season after they finished in fifth place and won the FA Cup under Conte last term.

With the first worldwide break four weeks away, Sarri says that only now can he really get to work, as World Cup stars such as Eden Hazard, Olivier Giroud and N'Golo Kante returned to training just last week.

"The first half was hard".

N'Golo Kante opened the scoring before Jorginho's cheeky penalty doubled the lead before half-time.

It was telling that Chelsea's first two goals came from their only two shots on target in the first half, and that one of those was a penalty, awarded for Christopher Schindler's foul on Marcos Alonso after a nice flick from Ross Barkley.

"Hazard has congratulated me on signing for Real Madrid", said Belgian goalkeeper.

He reached the par-5 eighth hole in two shots and two-putted for a birdie to climb to four under and six shots off the pace. That put him at 10-under 130, breaking by one the PGA Championship record and tying the 36-hole score for all majors.

If this happens, chances are that it could head lower with the next support level being $4800 on the 100-day moving average level. On the downside, a break below $0.3198 may well clear the path for more losses towards the $0.3000 and $0.2800 support levels.

Paul Pogba vows to give his all for Manchester United
Mourinho had previously criticised Scudamore and other Premier League organisers for making Man United play before every other team because of less time for preparation but he was all smiles after the Leicester City .

Jorginho, whose passing was near-faultless throughout, feinted during his run-up before rolling the ball in, leaving the goalkeeper flatfooted.

The new head coach was helped by a returning World Cup victor and a new signing.

GK Kepa Arrizabalaga, 7 - Making his debut just three days after signing for a club-record fee, there were questions about his familiarity with Sarri's style of play and the defence in front of him, but the 23-year old looked assured in goal and a confidence-boosting clean sheet came easily enough.

FW Pedro, 8 - Linked up well with Azpilicueta in forward passages of play and was the main beneficiary when Hazard came on as he latched onto a pass from the Belgian global to smartly score the final goal.

Alex Pritchard was a risky creative force in the final third, Steve Mounié came close on three occasions and hit the post with a close-range header just minutes after Kanté opened the scoring.

As for Jorginho's spot-kick, he was made to look silly.

The Blues may have been disappointing against Manchester City in the Community Shield last weekend but their Premier League campaign is up and running. Head coach Wagner worked miracles on the smallest of top-flight budgets to keep the Terriers up.
