Mateo Kovacic made his Chelsea debut in the 3-2 victory over Arsenal, and the 24-year-old impressed having joined the fray in the second half.

Kovacic completed 100% of his 43 attempted passes against Arsenal during his half-hour on the pitch, much to the delight of his manager.

Speaking about his debut, he told Sport Klub after the game: “First of all I’m happy about the win and that’s the most important thing, it’s good that the team is playing well so it’s easy to adapt.

“But I’m still out of rhythm since I’ve just joined the squad, but I’m working well and I’m improving and that’s what matters.”

And on the Premier League, he said: “Well, the tempo is higher, there is more space, but as I said it’s not hard to adapt when you are surrounded by great players.

“I would say thanks to all fans that support me and I will make sure I payback on the pitch.”
