(Video): Emerson starts season the right way with drilled effort from outside the box

Chelsea have a 2-0 lead against St Patrick’s now, and Emerson Palmieri has opened his account for the season.

Mason Mount had already given us the lead with a clever run and finish, and now Emerson is in on the act too.
