Huddersfield 0-3 Chelsea: Premier League highlights and recap

Club-record signing Terence Kongolo was one of nine additions in this window for Huddersfield

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.

A strike from World Cup victor N'Golo Kante, Jorginho's penalty on debut and a late goal for Pedro were enough to hand Maurizio Sarri a first win in the Premier League.

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri insists that he is not looking to replicate his Napoli style at Stamford Bridge.

Not content with covering 75 per cent of earth and controlling the midfield, N'Golo Kante is now scoring goals!

The Terriers were then dealt a major blow just before half-time when Chelsea were awarded a penalty for Christopher Schindler's sliding tackle on Marcos Alonso.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp: 'We played better than I expected'
And with a series of key summer acquisitions , the Reds are seen as the most likely side to dethrone Manchester City . I'm looking forward to this season, to improve things, be competitive and to challenge for the right targets.

Hazard came on for Willian with just 15 minutes of the game remaining but that was enough time for him to make an impression and really stake his claim as one of the best players in the Premier League once again.

The France midfielder was typically dominant with his usual duties, but surprisingly clinical with an extremely rare goal for the Blues in the first half.

Mounie took exception to Jorginho's cheeky penalty, adding: "It was weird". He will have World Cup-winning team-mate Olivier Giroud breathing down his neck if he does not step things up quickly.

And while it nearly certainly wasn't Sarri's primary motivation for bringing in Jorginho, it is a shift that could be enormously positive. They were not dominant, but kept their theoretically superior opponents from making too many threatening attacks, happy for Chelsea to pass the ball around in deep positions. They made Chelsea uncomfortable throughout the opening period, and new signing Terence Kongolo impressed at center-back.

"There has been a misunderstanding that he wanted to get a move for the wrong reasons, but he was pushing to go out of Chelsea because of his child", said Henrotay. However, they will certainly need to be more clinical and penetrative if they are to build on last season's fine work.
