N'Golo Kante Equals His Best Premier League Goals Tally

34' - GOAL! Huddersfield 0-1 Chelsea: It's a scruffy goal but Chelsea and Sarri won't care - they are off and running under their new boss.

Napoli won many admirers last season for their progressive possession-based approach, with many viewing the Serie A side as the best team to watch in any of Europe's top leagues.

Maurizio Sarri's reign as Chelsea manager got off to the best possible start with an eye-catching 3-0 win away at Huddersfield.

"I have to respect the characteristics of the players, I have to adapt myself to the characteristics of the championship and of the players, so now I am studying my players".

The transfer window for non-English clubs is open until the end of the month and it would be great if we can keep hold of the Belgian attacker this season. "We really wanted to get something out of this game". Even with 10 men, Brazilian forward Richarlison restored Everton's lead in the second half but Neves swung in a cross that was headed in by Jimenez to restore parity.

Chelsea had to dig deep early on against Huddersfield but went in at the break with a two-goal cushion thanks to N'Golo Kante and summer signing Jorginho.

"I think that Eden in this moment can not play for 90 minutes, he needs to have training", Sarri said of the Belgium star. Was a menace throughout until he was replaced with 15 minutes to play. "But I have seen a player who is very happy to stay here, so I think it will be no problem, the new contract". The experienced goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois spent the first half of the week absent without leave to force through his move to Real Madrid, with the replacement, Kepa Arrizabalaga, recruited only on Wednesday night. And useful for the results, I think.

For the opening 30 minutes of the match, Chelsea barely troubled the Huddersfield defence and that was largely down to the impressive performance of Terence Kongolo.

"I think the players have done everything, left everything on the grass".

"Chelsea were very clinical".

"The second goal we conceded shortly before half-time is a goal which we should never concede".

Pedro applied the finishing touch after Hazard accelerated forward with objective before unselfishly teeing up the Spaniard, who was cool and collected before lifting the ball over the onrushing Hamer, watching it trickle into the corner.

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