Maurizio Sarri believes he will need time to transform Chelsea

Man City

GETTY Man City stormed to the title last season with 100 points

In a ruthless display of finishing Chelsea also netted with their second effort, new boy Jorginho coolly converting a penalty on the stroke of half-time after Marcos Alonso was felled inside the box.

France World Cup victor N'Golo Kante volleyed in the opener in the 34th minute, Jorginho netted a penalty on his Premier League debut before halftime and Pedro drove home the third with an angled drive after the break. Jorginho coolly converted the penalty. In Hamer's case, he simply fell to the ground and watched the ball slowly roll by.

Pedro applied the finishing touch after Hazard accelerated forward with goal before unselfishly teeing up the Spaniard, who was cool and collected before lifting the ball over the onrushing Hamer, watching it trickle into the corner.

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

Huddersfield 1-2 Chelsea: It's a fresh start for Chelsea and it will be interesting to see how Sarri does in the Premier League. "In Naples we played at great speed: ball forward, ball back, with continuity, with great speed with the strikers".

While today's result will be sure to relieve any original doubts over this new look Chelsea side, Sarri was keen to play down the flattering score line.

Two days later, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned that Turkey that the " clock had run out " to release Brunson. But invoking national security is the only way to square Trump's policy with USA law and WTO rules.

Laurent Depoitre had Town's best chance in the second half but he shot wildly over after being teed up by Florent Hadergjonaj.

As we know, Kante is not known for scoring goals but he's kept up his record of scoring at least one goal in a Premier League season by getting off to a flyer this afternoon.

Eden Hazard looks as if he is back with a bang this season.

N'Golo Kante isn't 100% match fit following his late arrival to pre-season training but the World Cup winning midfielder could be risked as Kovacic won't be ready to start for his new team just yet. But, the youngster is surprisingly, not even in the matchday squad.

But with a good start to the season so vital for Sarri at his new club, it is understandable why he wanted to rely on more senior players as David Luiz also started over Andreas Christensen in central defence.

"In certain moments in the game, we have to improve to defend in the other half, to press especially against three defenders", Sarri said.
