Sarri hints that scoreline flattered Chelsea after 3-0 Huddersfield win

For the third goal, Hazard sliced through Huddersfield's defence down the middle before setting up Pedro, who drove home a low angled shot into the bottom corner.

Furthermore, the early signs in pre-season which suggested that Chelsea might need more testing and trying before they finally play together as a unit was eventually banished when the side came out in the second half with further panache to add to their first half exploits.

Sarri's Chelsea beat Huddersfield 3-0 on Saturday in the Italian's first taste of Premier League football.

"I think he (Kepa) did well", Rudiger said. "We have to improve in moving the ball faster, I think".

The champions of Europe, Real Madrid are all set to make a £200m bid to bring Eden Hazard to the Bernabeu this summer, though Chelsea still do not wish to sell their talisman. We all know Thibaut's quality, but Thibaut's not a Chelsea player anymore.

The biggest news is World Cup victor Paul Pogba being named as captain; whether this is a permanent decision remains to be seen. For now, though, expect to see Pogba at Old Trafford at least for the first half of the upcoming season.

"Then we were 2-0 down after I think a good half and I think second half we started very slow, we were shocked".

- Chelsea midfielder Jorginho has scored 90 per cent of the penalties he has taken in the top five European leagues (all competitions), converting 10 of his 11 spot kicks across three different clubs (Verona, Napoli and Chelsea).

But the game turned decisively towards the visitors when Chelsea doubled their advantage just before the interval as Marcos Alonso burst into the area and went down under challenge from Christopher Schindler.

Huddersfield had given as good as they got before going behind to N'Golo Kante's scuffed 34th-minute volley. "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", He told the BBC. In the first line, we defended not like we wanted to defend. We made too many mistakes and you have to be clinical and use your chances. I don't know. The situation until now has been very hard. "The ref needs to explain that to us because I don't understand why (it was not retaken)".
