Kepa makes his debut at Chelsea with a comfortable away win

2018 Aug 12

Hardly Kepa Arrizabalaga could imagine a better debut than he had yesterday in the Premier League. The already ex-goalkeeper of Athletic de Bilbao managed to leave his goal to zero and saw his teammates endorse a comfortable 0-3 at Huddersfield Town with goals from Ngolo Kanté, Jorginho and Pedro. The match, which marked the start of Maurizio Sarri's new Chelsea in the top division of English football, also left many clues to the Italian's idea for the coming months.

The ex of Naples for example has already banished the idea of ​​playing with three centers that both characterized the blues during the time of Antonio Conte, moving to one of the most commonly used drawings today, the 4-3-3. Although he still has not been able to count on many of the World Cups, Hazard for example had to start the game from the bench, the team left very good feelings, but Sarri believes that his team will still need at least two more months before that they start to really have their game idea assimilated.

Those who do not change in terms of names but are still as effective are the spurs of Mauricio Pochettino. The Argentine has decided that this summer, for the first time in an English club since 2003, there are no entries or exits, giving priority to keep the block in order to give continuity to the project. In their opening game, which was very noticeable lack of pace of their players, most still with few workouts in the legs after the World Cup in Russia, Tottenham managed to beat the Newcastle by Rafa Benitez by the minimum thanks to the goals of Vertonghen and Dele Alli (1-2). Although Joselu was able to equal the initial 0-1 of the center, the team of the Magpies only managed to hold the gasoline during the first hour of play.

In the remaining games, Bournemouth won 2-0 at home to Cardiff City, Fullham also lost 2-0 to Crystal Palace and Watford beat Brighton 2-0. Everton, who did not make debut to Digne, André Gomes neither Yerry Mina, tied in its debut in front of the Wolverhampton by 2-2.
