Huddersfield 0-3 Chelsea: Premier League highlights and recap

Huddersfield goalkeeper Ben Hamer can do nothing to keep out Jorginho's penalty for Chelsea.

And Pedro wrapped up the scoring 10 minutes from time to give Sarri his dream start in the Premier League.

Jorginho followed Sarri from Napoli to Chelsea in the summer and the midfielder doubled the Blues' lead when he converted a penalty after Christopher Schindler fouled Marcos Alonso.

"Of course I know some of the players in the current team from the Spanish national side, even at the World Cup".

The two-goal deficit deflated the hosts and the Blues took complete control after the restart, further extending their lead through Pedro as Sarri recorded a convincing victory in his first league game.

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.

The striker, who was the tournament's top scorer in Russian Federation, has now failed to score a Premier League goal in August at 14 attempts.

Representatives for Frankel did not immediately respond to USA TODAY's request for comment. "This is heartbreaking. His estranged wife Jill Schwartzberg Shields told Fox News: " Dennis' family is devastated by this bad news".

Chelsea's new manager Maurizio Sarri says he has a month to whip his team into shape and make them familiar with the high-intensity, passing football which was nicknamed "Sarri-ball" during his time at Napoli in Serie A.

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. This would have been one for Huddersfield, but it is still early. Jorginho also impressed and Eden Hazard was typically brilliant when he came on in the second half.

This will mean Barkley may once again find himself sitting on the bench at Chelsea, fighting with Ruben Loftus-Cheek for a spot as Kovacic's back up. So we were not ready for this situation and it was a problem and this team did not have the experience against this.

Unfortunately for Huddersfield and Kongolo, Chelsea managed to score twice before half-time which stretched the defence.

Callum Hudson-Odoi was tipped to start after a bright preseason.

Last season's Europa League winners are now expected to reward Oblak with a new contract which would see his buyout clause raised to an eye-watering €250m.
