Chelsea's all-round effort ensures Maurizio Sarri makes winning start
Sarri will face Huddersfield in his first Premier League game as Chelsea manager
12 August, 2018, 05:24
The World Cup victor started his first game under the tutelage of Maurizio Sarri against Huddersfield and proved to be the most unlikely goalscorer when he found the net 34 minutes into the trip to the John Smith Stadium with a bouncing side-foot volley with his weaker left peg. After a choppy opening half hour, N'Golo Kante made the breakthrough and, from that point on, there was only going to be one outcome.
Eden Hazard also produced a lively cameo after coming on as a 76th-minute substitute, creating Chelsea's third goal, rounding off a near ideal start to life in English football for Sarri, who had predicted that his team would encounter problems with results and performances in the first half of the season.
"This is understandable after this good first half and you sit at half-time and you are 2-0 down".
There were howls of protest from the stands, but Huddersfield's players were broadly quiet, and rightly so. Jorginho jogged up, did a little hop and then rolled the penalty to Ben Hamer's left.
The Belgian made a burst from his own half that drew Huddersfield defenders towards him before rolling a diagonal pass for Pedro to slot in the third. 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.
"In the first half we started on the front foot, where we really wanted to be active", he said.
"He is a great player and I would like to be always at his side, let's see what happens in the future". We did it better in the second, but in the second, there was more space and time. "I hope in this month to improve the team".
"We had the chance for the equaliser, but we hit the underside of the bar and this is what happens".
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. "We kept them away from our goal and as I said they scored out of nothing". However, they will certainly need to be more clinical and penetrative if they are to build on last season's fine work.
