Jorginho officially opened his Chelsea account courtesy of a cheeky, cheeky penalty.
The Brazilian-born Italian international made his Premier League debut on Saturday afternoon, taking up a position in midfield alongside N’Golo Kante.
And it was the diminutive Frenchman who bagged the first goal of the game, side-footing the ball into the back of the net to hand Chelsea the lead.
Kante’s midfield partner, Jorginho, then doubled Chelsea’s advantage from the spot.
He was on penalty duty with Eden Hazard on the bench, and he successfully converted making Huddersfield’s Ben Hamer look silly between the sticks.
A hop, a skip before calmly rolling the ball into the goal.

Needless to say, Jorginho’s penalty was the talk of the first-half. Here’s some reaction from Twitter:
We need to talk about that Jorginho penalty.
That was just outrageous.#HUDCHE pic.twitter.com/yRON4CqJni – Match of the Day (@BBCMOTD) August 11, 2018
Cheeky penalty from Jorginho. Wrong footed Ben Hamer & just rolled it in at snails pace. – John Bennett (@JohnBennettBBC) August 11, 2018

In Hazard and Jorginho, we might just have the two coolest penalty takers in world football right now. – Chelsea HQ (@Chelsea_HQ) August 11, 2018
Penalty by Jorginho out of this world – Nathaniel Ebo Adams (@ebosky_revo) August 11, 2018
Decent half, great for Kante to get that first goal and wow what a nonchalant penalty by Jorginho! 🙂 Lovely move in the build-up for it. Let’s get a third and finish them off! – George Martin (@Martillo42) August 11, 2018
Jorginho’s style of penalty is a cheat code. – Boi Prince (@Nanadebrah84) August 11, 2018
