Maurizio Sarri: 'I must adapt to Chelsea'

Club-record signing Terence Kongolo was one of nine additions in this window for Huddersfield

Maurizio Sarri has handed Kepa Arrizabalaga and Jorginho handed their Premier League debuts as Chelsea take on Huddersfield on Saturday.

France World Cup victor N'Golo Kante volleyed in the opener in the 34th minute, Jorginho netted a penalty on his Premier League debut before halftime and Pedro drove home the third with an angled drive after the break.

STAR MAN - Mounie seemed the most likely to hurt the visiting Londoners and came quite close to equalising after Kante scored in the first half.

Kante has been deployed in a more advanced role due to Jorginho's arrival and was on the end of Willian's cross to open the scoring 11 minutes before half-time.

Jorginho's penalty raised eyebrows and delighted neutrals, the former Napoli midfielder deceiving goalkeeper Ben Hamer with a skip in his run-up before rolling the ball home.

Hazard came on for Willian for just his second outing since the World Cup and poked a pass through the legs of Terence Kongolo for Pedro to lift Chelsea's third beyond Hamer and round off a routine win.

Huddersfield boss David Wagner felt bad luck cost his side in the season-opener.

There were questions over whether Huddersfield could keep things rolling after their achievement last season and they really didn't play badly, especially in the first half.

"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". "We did a preseason. what can I say. unusual, maybe. In this moment we are not at the top of our potential but we had the capacity to suffer for 20 minutes in the first half".

"We conceded the first goal out of nothing, a deflection goal and then we were unlucky when Steve Mounie only hit the inside of the post". We made a mistake in our frontline that led to the second goal which can not happen. The two goals were Chelsea's only two shots on target in the first half. If you see the result, you think it was a very easy match, but in the first half it was very hard against physical opponents.

But there was no instant return on that investment as Jeffrey Schlupp and Wilfried Zaha scored either side of half-time to give Palace a 2-0 win at Craven Cottage. Sarri has said it will take time to get his players playing his style; if this was anything to go by, the rest of the Premier League will be in trouble when Chelsea fully hit stride.
