Raheem Sterling Scores His First Goal AS Chelsea Hammer Udinese 3-1



At the Dacia Arena, Chelsea overcame Udinese 3-1 tonight in a preseason friendly thanks to Raheem Sterling’s first goal for the team.

After just 20 minutes, N’Golo Kante scored the game’s first goal with a fantastic strike. He advanced from midfield before firing a low shot from the edge of the box past goalkeeper Marco Silvestri.

On minute 37, Raheem Sterling scored his first goal for the Blues and doubled Chelsea’s advantage by latching onto a through pass into the box and scoring off the rebound after his initial attempt had been stopped.

Nevertheless, Udinese kept the action going, and former Watford forward Gerard Deulofeu took advantage of a rebound to score shortly before halftime.

After the break, Chelsea controlled the ball but missed many excellent opportunities before Callum Hudson-Odoi set up Mason Mount to score in the dying seconds of the match to secure the victory.

The performance of newly acquired Kalidou Koulibaly will impress Blues supporters. Before being replaced, he looked comfortable playing on the left side of a defensive back three with Thiago Silva and Cesar Azpilicueta.
