Huddersfield Town 0-3 Chelsea: 5 Hits and Flops

Huddersfield Town 0-3 Chelsea: 5 Hits and Flops

Chelsea midfielder N'golo Kante celebrates with his team-mates after scoring his team's first goal against Huddersfield Town. Even with 10 men, Brazilian forward Richarlison restored Everton's lead in the second half but Neves swung in a cross that was headed in by Jimenez to restore parity.

The football didn't improve until the Italian delivered his team-talk, though - and they performed like a new team after the restart.

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri insists that he is not looking to replicate his Napoli style at Stamford Bridge. "The best thing for him was to play 15-20 minutes when the opposition was exhausted".

"I am really very happy because in the first part of the season I think that for us it is not easy to gain points", the Chelsea boss said.

Huddersfield: Hamer 7, Hadergjonaj 7, Schindler 6, Zanka 5, Kongolo 5, Mooy 5, Hogg 6, Billing 6, Pritchard 6, Lowe 5, Mounie 6.

World Cup victor Kante's scruffy 34th-minute volley and Jorginho's audacious penalty on the stroke of half-time put Chelsea in control before Pedro wrapped up the points in the closing stages.

Zimbabwe opposition file presidential poll challenge
According to ZEC, the President elect secured 50.8 percent of the votes against his closest rival, Chamisa's 43.3 percent. But the MDC say the security forces have launched a brutal crackdown on the opposition following the disputed poll.

Substitutes: Caballero, Christensen, Zappacosta, Moses (N/A), Loftus-Cheek (7), Hazard (8), Giroud. Kepa beaten but Chelsea survive! Alonso is caught by Schlinder inside the box and the referee points to the spot!

45' - GOAL! Huddersfield 0-2 Chelsea: Two shots on target, two goals from Chelsea.

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.

58' - CROSSBAR! Chelsea go close from a corner once more. That would have been something.

Spain global 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. Executed by Hazard, finished by Pedro.

And the Spanish goalkeeper believes that he and his team-mates will be able to swiftly adapt to the rigours of playing under Sarri this season. After Eden Hazard's introduction, he drove at the heart of the Huddersfield defence before passing to Pedro. The Spaniard applies the finish, lifting the ball over Hamer.
