Huddersfield 0-3 Chelsea: Premier League highlights and recap

Huddersfield 0-3 Chelsea: Premier League highlights and recap

It was one of the first pieces of subconscious and fluid play from Chelsea, and it immediately reaped rewards as it killed off Huddersfield just before half-time.

A strike from World Cup victor N'Golo Kante, Jorginho's penalty on debut and a late goal for Pedro were enough to hand Maurizio Sarri a first win in the Premier League.

It would do a discredit to the style of play to say Chelsea began to fully embrace "Sarriball" in the second half, but there was certainly a more attacking approach adopted as Chelsea looked to put the game out of sight.

"We have been working really hard with (Sarri)", he said.

Jorginho doubled the visitors' advantage from the penalty spot on the stroke of half-time and Pedro wrapped up the points with a smartly-taken goal following a dazzling run by substitute Eden Hazard. "But I have seen a player who is very happy to stay here, so I think it will be no problem, the new contract".

The Cottagers, promoted after winning the play-off final at Wembley, had produced a positive first half, but went behind when Jeffrey Schlupp drilled in a left-foot shot on 41 minutes. Asked how much he would change preseason, Sarri said: "Completely, I think".

"I think that Eden in this moment can not play for 90 minutes, he needs to have training", he explained.

David Moyes has made a very bold prediction for Manchester United's season
The Spurs manager believes it was more important to keep his key players at the squad, with Harry... Well, spending for the sake of spending doesn't necessarily bring success on the pitch.

Huddersfield boss David Wagner felt his side "tried everything" in their 3-0 defeat at home to Chelsea, but accepts the result was deserved.

Huddersfield, employing a three-man backline, had impressed in the first half and could have cancelled out Kante's opener but Steve Mounie headed against the inside of the post.

Willian's cross to the back post was testing, and there was Kante to half-volley in for just his third Premier League goal for Chelsea - scoring one in each of his three seasons. "It will be very important for us". Maybe the performances in the first part of the season will not be in line with the potential of the squad.

And it looks like his current team will give him the opportunity to light up during games.

Jorginho's penalty raised eyebrows and delighted neutrals, the former Napoli midfielder deceiving goalkeeper Ben Hamer with a skip in his run-up before rolling the ball home. "In this moment we are not at the top of our potential but we had the capacity to suffer for 20 minutes in the first half".

"I don't know, he has always kicked the penalty like this", Sarri shrugged.
