Maurizio Sarri makes a remarkable start as Chelsea manager as his squad managed to cruise past Huddersfield with a very comfortable win of 3-0. The former Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri was, however, expecting a tough early start in Chelsea’s hot seat. But the goals from midfielder Ng’olo Kante, Pedro and their summer signing Jorginho erased the fears of the opening the season with an upset. The World Cup winner and midfielder Ng’olo Kante made a scruffy 34th-minute shot that went past the Huddersfield goalkeeper easily. Then, Jorginho’s audacious penalty did hurt the feelings of the Huddersfield team as they went for halftime down with two goals. In the second half, Chelsea remained in control as Pedro wrapped up the show to secure a win of three points and three goals.
Eden Hazard, who was not fit to play, was handed an opportunity to play in the second half. Six minutes in the field, he had already made six dribbles and managed to assist Pedro to score a goal. The new shot-stopper Kepa Arrizabalega, who is also the world’s most expensive goalkeeper, barely made any save on his Chelsea’s debut. His defenders seemed to do all the work for him. The likes of David Luiz and Antonio Rudiger were all up to the task as they secured Chelsea’s eighteen box with much zeal and energy. The new summer signing, Jorginho, positioned himself in the midfield the way Sarri wanted. He ensured that the midfield was well balanced, which entirely denied David Wagner any dominance in the center. Kepa Arrizabalega had signed from Athletic Bilbao for a fee of 72 million Euros. The goalkeeper had very little to do in the first 20 minutes of the game. Chelsea possessed the ball. Kepa almost made a very terrible mistake on his first touch of the game as he almost passed the ball to midfielder Aaron Mooy.
Huddersfield Alex Pritchard managed to fire the first shot straight to Kepa. Soon after, the Spaniard swiftly dealt with the threat. On the other side was Ben Hamer, the Huddersfield goalkeeper who was signed on a free transfer from last year but one’s premier league winners, Leicester City. Ben made a very terrible and nervous start. He placed his side under pressure with very awkward and misplaced passes at the penalty area. Towards the halftime minute, Huddersfield enjoyed some moment of possession as they consistently made some efforts that went over the bar, making work easier for Kepa.
