David Wagner: Huddersfield 'tried everything' against Chelsea

Maurizio Sarri enjoyed a winning start to life as a manager in the English Premier League as Chelsea outclassed Huddersfield 3-0 on Saturday.

Chelsea were found wanting in last week's Community Shield defeat to Manchester City, but proved too good for Huddersfield despite leaving World Cup stars Eden Hazard, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Olivier Giroud on the bench.

As well as brilliantly setting up the third goal of the afternoon for Pedro, the winger also embarked on a mazy run that took five Huddersfield players to stop him. However, if you're planning to bet on Luiz's departure, you should be aware that the defender, which was re-signed by Chelsea in 2016, is hoping to make a solid comeback into the team.

Jorginho then whispered something to Hazard that caused the Belgian to burst out laughing.

In the opener, the Blues cruised to a 3-0 win at Huddersfield, earning a convincing three points after the team failed to impress during the preseason.

Sarri is famed for getting the best out of his strikers, but said: "In Naples, we played at great speed, ball forward, ball back, with continuity, with great speed with the strikers".

Brazil worldwide David Luiz is confident of a place in the fresh-looking Chelsea after the team's coaching job was taken over by Maurizio Sarri.

Bakayoko started 25 Premier League games last season but did not really perform brilliantly. "We play high, with a lot of possession of the ball, in a technical way". The return of the industrious Kante no doubt helped him focus on the areas he excels in.

He has deemed Bakayoko to be surplus to requirements, despite a desire from the player to remain on Chelsea's books and try and play his way into form. I saw our spirit, togetherness and good attitude today, which is what we will need to be competitive this season.

Christopher Schindler's sliding challenge on Marcos Alonso was deemed illegal by Kavanagh and Jorginho craftily waited for Hamer to commit before clipping his spot kick into the opposite corner. "The ref needs to explain that to us because I don't understand why (it was not retaken)".
