Chelsea fans want to see Mateo Kovacic start against Arsenal

Chelsea impressed on the opening day of the Premier League against Huddersfield, and that’s just what the Blues needed. There was a bit of uncertainty at the club following a mixed pre-season campaign that included losses against Arsenal and Man City, and so a good performance was needed.

They got just that, with a 3-0 convincing win over Huddersfield enough to settle the early season nerves at Stamford Bridge.

However, next weekend, Chelsea’s biggest test yet is on the horizon, with a clash against Arsenal likely to be the best indicator yet of how the club are going to do this season.

Chelsea have been building up to the game over on Twitter, and in response, fans are making the case for a major debut at Stamford Bridge.

Mateo Kovacic moved to Chelsea towards the end of the summer window from Real Madrid, and he’s yet to appear for his new club, likely owing to a lack of first team training.

Clearly, though, fans recognise his talent, and they want to see it in action on Saturday. His debut will undoubtedly be a huge event, with the Croatian a big name in European football – especially given all of his Champions League success.

Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…
