Huddersfield Town 0 Chelsea 3: Jorginho helps get Sarri off the mark

From Kante to the kids winners and losers as Chelsea beat Huddersfield

We made a mistake in our frontline that led to the second goal which can not happen. "They had five chances and scored three goals", Wagner told reporters.

"So when you haven't got that expectation on you I think it's good because it happened in Antonio's first season when Chelsea had slumped down the league and didn't too well".

Chelsea's second came after Schindler had tripped Marcos Alonso, referee Chris Kavanagh being berated for the decision but he got the ball right.

"It's never easy to adapt to a new style of play, but I think we did well". He captained the side well and the defence looked cohesive under his watch.

It appears this season that Jorginho could be one of Chelsea's most important players alongside the likes of Kante and Eden Hazard. Sarri is famed for getting the best out of his strikers, but said: "In Naples, we played at great speed, ball forward, ball back, with continuity, with great speed with the strikers".

And Pedro wrapped up the scoring 10 minutes from time to give Sarri his dream start in the Premier League.

Before the half-time break, Jorginho added a second from the spot. Jorginho coolly converted the penalty.

Kante is already recognised as one of the better midfielders in Europe for his ability to appear in many places at one time defensively.

MF Ross Barkley, 7 - It's clear that Barkley is fully fit and the qualities he once displayed for Everton were very much in evidence as he played with composed intelligence in midfield.

Hazard sliced through Huddersfield's defence down the middle before setting up Pedro, who drove home a low angled shot into the bottom corner.

FW Willian, 8 - Willian has also come in for unnecessary criticism from sections of Chelsea's support in recent weeks but, like Alonso, his contribution was pivotal when he assisted Kante's goal following a clever run.

"And I think the good thing about it, you look at Man City and you look at Liverpool".

"We were in trouble for 15 minutes against a physical team, we are not a physical team".

Sarri sent on Eden Hazard for Willian with 14 minutes left and the Belgian helped put the game to bed.
