Chelsea are off the mark as they convincing put away Premier League new boys Luton Town 3-0 at Stamford Bridge on Friday night. 

It was an impressive display that Mauricio Pochettino will be pleased with after a bruising defeat to West Ham last weekend.

Raheem Sterling was at his very best in what was his most impressive display since moving to Chelsea from Manchester City last summer.

His stunning opening goal allowed the home side to build before his second calmed the nerves after a shaky period early in the second half.

Nicolas Jackson sealed victory with his first Chelsea goal after Sterling turned provider, with new signings Romeo Lavia and Djordje Petrovic watching on from Todd Boehly’s private box.

With more signings to bed in and performances that have been good, Pochettino will be pleased with his start in West London.

Who impressed for Chelsea?

With so many new signings over the last 12 months, you can be forgiven for struggling to keep up with the turnover of players. One player who has been unfortunate in results but steady in performances is Enzo Fernandez.

The Argentinan international was hugely creative and provided an entertainment factor. He was also a goal threat playing as a no10 almost scored through free-kicks, long-range shots and from arriving late in the box.

Raheem Sterling of course was man of the match. His slaloming run for the first was like watching Eden Hazard all over again, as well as a glimpse into the best of Sterling.

Nicolas Jackson was once again busy and his technical quality was displayed with his goal providing the cherry on the cake.

The defence looked assured and with the potential for Luton to mount dangerous attacks on the counter, the team looked more comfortable in transition compared to the West Ham game.
