Chelsea’s new manager Maurizio Sarri has proved to be too good for Huddersfield following a an away three nill victory.
Sarri becomes the 10th manager for the club in ten years following the departure of Antonio Conte who was sacked in the summer.
Chelsea took the lead in the 34th minute through N’Golo Kante took advantage of Willian’s strike that went past Huddersfield goalkeeper Ben Hamer.
Jorginho double the lead before half time when he converted a penalty after Marco Alonso was brought down by Christopher Schindler.
Jorginho joined Chelsea from Napoli in the just closed transfer window.
Pedro sealed the win for the Blues after taking advantage of Eden Hazard’s run to chip the ball past Huddersfield goalkeeper. Eden came in as a substitute.
Most players who were away during the World cup have seen selection in the first eleven with Kante starting together with Willian. New boy Jorginho was also named alongside Kepa.
Ross Barkley started in the midfield alongside Alvaro Morata who made his 50th appearance for Chelsea.
Cesc Fabregas missed the starting 11 following a small injury but Eden Harzard stepped in as a substitute.
The home side who were taking shape into the Premier League made it difficult for Chelsea’s creative player from creating chances.
Great day for Sarri
Maurizio Sarri lost 2-0 during the Community Shield match against Manchester City but today it was great day for him.
Last season Chelsea finished in the fifth position and failed to qualify for the Champions League led to the sacking of Antonie Conte in July despite winning the league in his first season and winning the FA Cup in his second term.
At Napoli, Sarri guided the Italian side secure a second spot in the Serie A.
The 59 year old coach however warned Chelsea fans not to expect much in the first three months of their 2018-19 campaign.
