Denis Zakaria made his long-awaited debut for Chelsea last night in the 2-1 win against Dinamo Zagreb.
After falling behind early on, Chelsea bounced back with goals from Raheem Sterling and, yes, Denis Zakaria.
Not only a goal on his debut, manager Graham Potter reserved high praise for the midfield man on his first appearance for the club:
“He’s certainly did what we asked. He did everything he could, showed his quality, helped the team, scored… great.”
