Maurizio Sarri decides which Chelsea signings will make their debuts this weekend

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has reportedly decided on the club’s new signings who are ready to make their Premier League debuts for the Blues this weekend.

Chelsea start their season away to Huddersfield Town on Saturday, and have just welcomed new goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga and midfielder Mateo Kovacic to Stamford Bridge in the final days of the transfer window.

Kepa replaces the departing Thibaut Courtois in goal, while Kovacic comes in in midfield, though only on an initial loan from Real Madrid.

According to the Metro, Sarri has decided Kepa is in line to make his debut, though Kovacic is lacking match sharpness.

Jorginho is another new addition to this Chelsea squad and seems likely to start in midfield after making a real impression in pre-season, though there currently seems to be no word on the Italy international.

Chelsea could definitely do with a good start this weekend after last season’s disappointing fifth place finish under Antonio Conte.

CFC missed out on Champions League football and had to make do with the FA Cup as something of a consolation prize.

They’ll hope Sarri and their new signings can lead them to bigger trophies this term.
