From Kante to the kids, winners and losers as Chelsea beat Huddersfield

Kepa, signed from Atheltic Bilbao for £72.1million on Thursday, had little to do for the opening 20 minutes as Chelsea hogged the ball, but made a hash of an early touch when he passed straight to Town midfielder Aaron Mooy.

Substitutes: Lossl, Smith, Diakhaby, Ramadan, Van la Parra, Depoitre (6), Stankovic.

"We (Chelsea) have to play at another speed".

He said: "The game was more hard than the result".

Then Jorginho, who made the move from Napoli with Sarri, converted a disputed penalty.

Sarri has quite a task on his hands getting this Chelsea squad up to speed and there were concerns heading into the match.

Chelsea went ahead in the first half through a World Cup victor in N'Golo Kante, as he got on the end of a Willian cross and despite not quite connecting with the ball as he would have liked, he found the corner of the net.

Undisturbed by the pressure and jeering of the Huddersfield fans, Jorginho calmly dispatched his penalty with a skip before striking the ball - a technique some at Chelsea will have already seen in their pre-season shootouts.

Starting XI: Arrizabalaga (7), Alonso (8), David Luiz (9), Rüdiger (8), Azpilicueta (8), Barkley (6), Jorginho (7), Kante (9), Willian (8), Morata (6), Pedro (8). Subs: Loftus-Cheek 6, Moses 5, Hazard 7.

The 26-year-old was one of the best players at the World Cup in Russian Federation but he did not return for training at Chelsea according to the Metro.

Kongolo initially joined the Terriers on loan for the second half of last season and performed well enough at the back for Huddersfield to make him their record signing this summer.

MF Jorginho, 8 - Chelsea's new midfield general looked composed and creative throughout as he confidently played give-and-go football with his teammates.

Spain worldwide goalkeeper Kep Arrizabalaga became the most expensive goalkeeper in history by completing a £71m move from Athletic Bilbao and made an assured debut in Saturday's 3-0 win over Huddersfield.

"From the physical point of view, it's different", the Chelsea boss said, comparing the Premier League to Serie A.

The Blues may have been disappointing against Manchester City in the Community Shield last weekend but their Premier League campaign is up and running.
