  • David Wagner: Huddersfield 'tried everything' against Chelsea

Eden Hazard also produced a lively cameo after coming on as a 76th-minute substitute, creating Chelsea's third goal, rounding off a near flawless start to life in English football for Sarri, who had predicted that his team would encounter problems with results and performances in the first half of the season.

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 ideal start.

Jorginho, N'Golo Kante, and Pedro all scored in Chelsea's 3-0 win at the John Smith's Stadium, with the Blues in a back four and featuring a new midfield of Ross Barkley, Jorginho, and Kante.

Huddersfield were a persistent threat from crosses into the box and they went close to an equaliser when Steve Mounie headed Mathias Jorgensen's flick-on against the inside of the upright.

Christopher Schindler's sliding challenge on Marcos Alonso was deemed illegal by Kavanagh and Jorginho craftily waited for Hamer to commit before clipping his spot kick into the opposite corner.

"Second half the boys tried everything".

"In the first half we started on the front foot, where we really wanted to be active", he said.

So how long will it take, Maurizio?

World Cup victor Kante's untidy 34th-minute volley and Jorginho's audacious penalty on the stroke of halftime put Chelsea in control before Pedro wrapped up the points in the closing stages. The Italy worldwide barely misplaced a pass and orchestrated the visitors' approach by keeping himself open and barking out orders. We as defenders need to help him and we did that.

Huddersfield ran out of steam and ideas after the break, and Chelsea were content to keep possession and control of the game, but there was still time for a reminder of Eden Hazard's quality.

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

Chelsea welcome Arsenal to Stamford Bridge in the standout Premier League fixture of next weekend, while things do not get any easier for Huddersfield - they head to reigning champions City.
