Chelsea Beat Huddersfield As New Signing Jorginho Shines

"I am really very happy because in the first part of the season, I think that for us, it is not easy to gain points", Sarri said.

Even as Chelsea grew in the game and took the lead, Morata looked slightly lost in the attacking line as Willian and Pedro opted to cut in from their wide positions.

Pedro sealed a comfortable win with a cool, chipped finish for Chelsea's third after being played in by substitute Eden Hazard. Jorginho stepped up and cooly found the back of the net.

Chelsea were tested by Huddersfield's height and physicality in a scrappy first half that saw striker Steve Mounie crash a header off the post with the score 1-0, and Sarri said Premier League refereeing will be another element of his adjustment to English football. If you look at the result, you can think about an easy game, but in the first half we were in trouble for 15 minutes against a very physical team.

And when the crosses did come in, Morata could not get himself on the end of them, being crowded out well by the Huddersfield defence.

Jorginho converted the penalty, a skip on his run-up leaving Hamer on his backside.

WORST PLAYER - Overall, Chelsea played a good game and no one was exactly disgusting, but Alvaro Morata did little to improve his prospects.

The Terriers, meanwhile, were probably buoyed by the fact that their survival last season was helped by the point they gained against the Blues in their penultimate game of the campaign.

Things are looking good for Chelsea if he can maintain this sort of form. But the Blues were clearly the better side on the day despite not kicking into gear under Sarri just yet.

"He is a great player and I would like to be always at his side, let's see what happens in the future".

When a team plays well but loses, it is sometimes hard to figure out if they have been wasteful or unlucky.

Kante is already recognised as one of the better midfielders in Europe for his ability to appear in many places at one time defensively. "We kept them away from our goal and as I said they scored out of nothing". In the first half we didn't. However, they will certainly need to be more clinical and penetrative if they are to build on last season's fine work.
