Keen on making a positive impression under the new tenure of Maurizio Sarri, Chelsea got themselves ahead after 20 minutes through their combative midfielder, N’Golo Kante’s effort.
Sarri’s men made it 2-0 with a cool taken penalty from summer signing, Jorginho, before Pedro sealed his team’s first league win this season with his fine goal, capitalizing on Eden Hazard’s assist.
