The first goal of the Sarri era came after 33 minutes from the unexpected source of Kante, who scored for the first time in 11 months with his third league goal for the club.

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri insists that he is not looking to replicate his Napoli style at Stamford Bridge.

Former Napoli coach Sarri replaced Antonio Conte in a restless summer for the London club but any fears of an opening-day upset disappeared with goals from France worldwide N'Golo Kante, summer signing Jorginho and Pedro.

Huddersfield were a persistent threat from crosses into the box and they went close to an equaliser when Steve Mounie headed Mathias Jorgensen's flick-on against the inside of the upright.

Chelsea's continued attacking foray helped them earn a penalty right at the stroke of half-time after Christopher Schindler's mistimed lunge brought down Marcos Alonso inside the area.

"Second half the boys tried everything".

"We're happy because to be honest our pre-season games were not that good", Rudiger said.

"It was Chelsea's first chance more or less out of nothing and then we conceded the penalty, where we clearly made a big mistake".

After a frustrating debut against City, Jorginho produced a fine display at the base of Chelsea's midfield.

"I've seen the spirit, attitude and togetherness we need for our season".

Sarri also said he will continue to be cautious with Hazard, who looked a long way short of full fitness. He will have FIFA World Cup-winning team-mate Olivier Giroud breathing down his neck if he does not step things up quickly.

Maurizio Sarri got his reign as Chelsea manager off to a fine start today, with his side recording a comfortable 3-0 victory over Huddersfield in their first Premier League game of the season.

Of course, Chelsea fans aren't to get ahead of themselves.

The Blues have endured a hard summer after Chelsea FC finished in fifth spot in the Premier League table last term.

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.
