Sarri's Chelsea too good for Huddersfield

Sarri's Chelsea too good for Huddersfield

"We're delighted with him, he's been training very well", he intimated.

"I have seen passion, desire, the spirit, which we usually have in our game".

"In the first half, we were in trouble for 15 minutes against a very physical team. Then in the second half the opponents were a bit exhausted and it was easier".

This would have been one for Huddersfield, but it is still early.

Sarri opted for a 4-5-1 formation, abandoning Conte's well-established system with three central defenders, and Chelsea struggled initially to get a foothold in the game.

Huddersfield had given as good as they got before going behind to N'Golo Kante's scuffed 34th-minute volley.

Huddersfield enjoyed more possession toward the half-hour mark as Steve Mounie's rising effort cleared the crossbar and a series of crosses from Huddersfield left-back Chris Lowe tested Chelsea's defence.

Chelsea beat Manchester City to Jorginho's signature in the summer, securing a reunion with Maurizio Sarri in London, and the midfielder looks like a force to be reckoned with.

He was also involved in the move to win the penalty, as Pedro started the attack, allowing Jorginho to feed it into Ross Barkley with a perfectly-weighted pass and the England global flicked it into Marcos Alonso's path to earn the penalty.

On Monday four players from the World Cup arrived.

The winger, long linked with Real Madrid, made an impact after he entered with his dribbling ability immediately evident.

Chelsea benefited tremendously from the introduction of their talisman, Eden Hazard, in the second half and added a third when the Belgian made one of his signature daring runs from midfield to feed it to Pedro, who dispatched a neat finish over Ben Hamer in goal for the Terriers to put the game beyond any doubt.

Although manager Maurizio Sarri had encouraged fans to be patient as he looked to install his football philosophy - known as "Sarri-ball" - at Chelsea, the club made the flawless start.

"It was a disappointing afternoon", said Wagner.
