Jorginho's shinpads went down a treat ahead of his Premier League debut

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.

Hazard only returned to training recently after his run to the World Cup semifinals, and Sarri, sensing he was not in shape for 90 minutes, started him on the bench.

Maurizio Sarri got his Chelsea reign off to the flawless start today with his side running out 3-0 winners over Huddersfield in their Premier League opener.

"Then in the best period which we had in the second half after 20-25 minutes where we hit the bar again, where we were unlucky, we conceded the third one and then at the end it was a deserved win for Chelsea".

Antonio Rudiger praised Chelsea's club-record signing Kepa Arrizabalaga for being a vocal presence on the pitch despite his quiet nature off it after the goalkeeper kept a clean sheet on his debut against Huddersfield Town.

"We (Chelsea) have to play at another speed".

She also claims without evidence that tapes exist of the president using the N-word repeatedly on the reality show's set. It must have been something very, very sensitive", she wrote, according to the Post .

While the victory over the Terriers can be viewed as a confidence boost, bigger and more challenging games lay ahead for Sarri and his troops.

"They had four or five chances and scored three goals and we were not able to use our chances".

After quite a few attempts to sign him, the eventual £150m valuation was just not good enough for the Spanish giants to get the attention of Chelsea. "I disagree that he can only play as one of three central defenders". I saw our spirit, togetherness and good attitude today, which is what we will need to be competitive this season.

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.

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

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