Jorginho burst out laughing at how good Eden Hazard was in his cameo off the bench against Huddersfield on Saturday as Chelsea started the new Premier League season with a win.

The Belgian was given three weeks off after his exploits at the World Cup and was only named on the bench at the Kirklees Stadium, but he made a massive impact when he was finally brought on in the second half.

As well as brilliantly setting up the third goal of the afternoon for Pedro, the winger also embarked on a mazy run that took five Huddersfield players to stop him.

After Hazard had won the free-kick, Jorginho could be seen jogging over to his new teammate looking absolutely stunned by how good he is - even joking with David Luiz about it.

The Italy international, who was shaking his head in disbelief at Hazard's ability, made an immediate beeline for his new teammate as he got back on his feet.

Jorginho then whispered something to Hazard that caused the Belgian to burst out laughing.

Although manager Maurizio Sarri had encouraged fans to be patient as he looked to install his football philosophy - known as 'Sarri-ball' - at Chelsea, the club made the perfect start.

N'Golo Kante finished off a fine move to give the Blues the lead against Huddersfield, then Jorginho got his first goal for the club from the penalty spot, before Pedro put the game beyond doubt with a dinked finish late on.
