Chelsea's goalkeeper, Sanchez, expresses his excitement.

Robert Sanchez has described his Chelsea debut as 'amazing,' revealing the details of when he learned he would be starting the season opener against Liverpool.

Having recently joined Chelsea from Brighton, the Spaniard was brought in to compete with Kepa Arrizabalaga for the No.1 goalkeeper position.

However, with news emerging that Kepa was set to be loaned to LaLiga giants Real Madrid, Sanchez was informed by Blues boss Mauricio Pochettino that he would be in the starting lineup.

In the 1-1 draw at home with Liverpool, Sanchez performed well and shared his thoughts on his debut, and also took the opportunity to express his gratitude towards the Chelsea fans for their warm welcome.

After the match, Robert said as Chelsea’s official website quoted: "It felt amazing to be out there for Chelsea and the fans have welcomed me really well, so I want to thank them for the reception.

“It was about getting my timing back in terms of game-time but I felt really confident, no nerves at all, and since I joined a week ago I’ve felt really welcomed by all the boys. I think we did a good game against Liverpool. It was a good start to the season and something for us to build on."

Regarding the game's progression, he added, "I think we started the game a little slow actually, but full credit to the boys, we really upped our levels – especially in the second half. We moved the ball well, created some good chances, and could have got the win. We’ll take the point though and move on to the next game."
