Maurizio Sarri won his first game in charge as Chelsea beat Perth Glory 1-0 on Monday in Australia.

Here is all we learned from the victory over Perth Glory

1. JORGINHO IS CHELSEA’S NEW MIDFIELD GENERAL

Following his performance in the victory over Perth Glory on Monday, Jorginho is definitely worth all the hype. The Brazilian-born Italy international made 101 touches and completed 92 passes against Perth Glory before he was hooked at half-time. Chelsea’s rhythm dropped after he was hooked.

2. ENTERTAINING FOOTBALL IS COMING TO STAMFORD BRIDGE

Chelsea fans have craved for good football from the team and Maurizio Sarri is obviously brining entertaining football to Stamford Bridge. The slick one-touch passing from Chelsea against Perth Glory was pleasing in the eye.

3. CALLUM HUDSON-ODOI DESERVES A FIRST TEAM PLACE

I would be disappointed to see Hudson-Odoi leave Chelsea on loan this summer. The 17-year-old caused problems for the Perth Glory defence from the left wing and he created Pedro’s goal after an impressive skill.

4. MORATA NEEDS TO IMPROVE QUICKLY

Judging by his performance against Perth Glory, Alvaro Morata might need to improve quickly if he is to be a key player for Chelsea in the new season. The Spaniard was ineffective in the 1-0 win over Perth Glory and was replaced on the hour mark by Tammy Abraham. Abraham looked more menacing than Morata.
