"We are not a physical team so for 20 minutes we were in trouble but we did very well".

Not content with covering 75 per cent of earth and controlling the midfield, N'Golo Kante is now scoring goals!

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.

Still, teething problems were to be expected given the Italian manager's arrival halfway through preseason, and Chelsea can take heart from the win, earned with their best attacking player, Eden Hazard, sitting on the bench for 75 minutes.

The Terriers were then dealt a major blow just before half-time when Chelsea were awarded a penalty for Christopher Schindler's sliding tackle on Marcos Alonso. He would have stayed, there is no reason to leave a club like Chelsea, he could have won trophies.

So how long will it take, Maurizio? The Italy global barely misplaced a pass and orchestrated the visitors' approach by keeping himself open and barking out orders.

English Premier League: Things to watch in Liverpool’s 2018-19 season
Sturridge had a fantastic pre-season, the best since I've been here, and it gives us unbelievable new options". It was a fresh start from the first minute, everything looked like it should have been.


"In certain moments in the game, we have to improve to defend in the other half, to press especially against three defenders", Sarri said.

Another positive was the performance of Alvaro Morata, much maligned for his form in the second half of last season, and heavily linked with a move away from Chelsea this summer. He will have FIFA World Cup-winning team-mate Olivier Giroud breathing down his neck if he does not step things up quickly.

Huddersfield only put one shot on frame and struggled with possession, and it isn't going to get easier.

Chelsea's new record signing Kepa Arrizabalaga impressed team-mate Antonio Rudiger in their opening-day Premier League win at Huddersfield.

And one clip in particular from the game was extremely impressive.

Cardiff City also tasted defeat on their return to the elite - midfielder Ryan Fraser's first-half goal and forward Callum Wilson's late strike securing the three points for Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium.
