Huddersfield Town vs. Chelsea - Football Match Report

Share

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.

Alex Pritchard was a unsafe creative force in the final third, Steve Mounié came close on three occasions and hit the post with a close-range header just minutes after Kanté opened the scoring.

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

Chelsea's Premier League era under Maurizio Sarri is off to a superb start.

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has insisted that he is not looking to replicate his Napoli style at the club. And it was a great display from the Brazil-born Italian global.

As for Jorginho's spot-kick, he was made to look silly. Sometimes describing the Frenchman as a defensive midfielder - even if that has been his primary role so far for Chelsea - feels like his extensive talents are being underplayed. The football didn't improve until the Italian delivered his team-talk, though - and they performed like a new team after the restart.

The Blues were the sole aggressors in the second half and, after Hamer parried a header from Antonio Rudiger behind, Alonso sent an acrobatic effort against the crossbar in the 58th minute. "He knows what he wants and our target was to start really well which we have done and now we must get ready for Arsenal".

"I have seen passion, desire, the spirit, which we usually have in our game". But, at times, especially in the buildup to the goals, it seemed like the players had it all down.

Chelsea's new No. 1 had one shot straight at him and a tricky cross to deal with, but beyond the chance that saw Mounie hit the post and a couple of interventions with his feet, he had a relatively leisurely afternoon.

The big problem last season was a lack of goals, however, and there was little here to suggest they won't struggle in that department again.
