The last opening match of the season was between Chelsea and West Ham. The new season has given Chelsea and the club’s new manager, Antonio Conte, a fresh opportunity for success after the disaster they endured last season.
The first player to help Chelsea towards a win was the one and only Eden Hazard! He converted a penalty to give the Blues the lead in the 47th minute. An opportunity came his way and he grabbed it with both feet!
The Blues had dominated the game but sadly this wasn’t evident when Collins equalised for West Ham. Nevertheless, that was all forgotten when Diego Costa netted the winner for his team in the penultimate minute of full time! It’s never over until it’s over!
Chelsea are among the winners of the first round of Premier League games. It’s time to forget last season’s woes and open our arms to the victories ahead!
