Chelsea warming up

Chelsea are slowly starting to warm up as the match is about to reach half-time. Not a very good start but Chelsea are getting into the groove. A mini battle taking place between Hudson-Odoi and Kyle Walker.

20:06 (IST) 05 Aug 2018
Hudson-Odoi effort too high

Chelsea's Hudson-Odoi sends it wide, losing another chance of equalising, very similar to Morata's effort. He goes again, finds space to run into space in a more central position. His shot isn’t the best as City are able to maintain their lead. 

20:01 (IST) 05 Aug 2018
Drinks break

Morata, who is wearing Jersey number 29 for the first time, attempts a shot at goal but it goes wide and his good build up goes to waste.  He cuts in from the left and shoots over. Drinks break called by referee Jon Moss.

Sarri's chance to prove he can replace Conte

Maurizio Sarri’s appointment as Chelsea manager, to replace Antonio Conte, who lifted the Premier League title in his first season two years ago, came as a bit of a hard pill to swallow for the fans. Much was reported about Conte’s tough relations with the management – Chelsea’s farewell message on the website to Conte was just 61 words. But after a pre-season that sprung up a few positives coupled with a few negatives, the fans still remain unsure on what Sarri brings to the table.
