From Kante to the kids, winners and losers as Chelsea beat Huddersfield

Steven Paston  PA Wire Sarri is set for his first Premier League game

Yet, goals from N'Golo Kante, Jorginho and Pedro Rodriguez at the John Smith's Stadium papered over the cracks for now and raised expectations of what Chelsea could be capable of once Sarri imposes the attacking style he became known for in three years at Napoli.

Italy global Jorginho passed home a fearless penalty in the 45th minute as Maurizio Sarri earned his first competitive win at the helm after his team went down to Manchester City in the Community Shield last weekend, while fellow debutant and the world's most expensive goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga started with a clean sheet.

Mauricio Sarri said this week that his Chelsea team might not play entirely as he wants until the second half of the season and, against Huddersfield, they certainly were not the whirling, fast-paced team of the new manager's ideals. Jorginho jogged up, did a little hop and then rolled the penalty to Ben Hamer's left.

Chelsea name the most expensive goalkeeper in world football, Kepa Arrizabalaga, between the sticks, while at the back Sarri goes with Cesar Azpilicueta, Antonio Rudiger, David Luiz and Marcos Alonso.

But it's either Morata or Olivier Giroud after Chelsea failed to sign a striker in the summer transfer window.

Joselu equalised for the Magpies, before Alli headed in the victor in the 18th minute. The last time the sides met, Huddersfield earned an improbable draw at Stamford Bridge to secure Premier League survival.

An increasingly open second period surprisingly failed to produce further addition to the score, as both goalkeepers excelled. Tottenham's second goal was simple in its construction and should have been comfortably dealt with.

Willian (Chelsea): Produced a driving performance, creating the first goal with his explosive pace and trickery. As such, the fact they won 3-0 anyway is a good sign that the acclimatisation period might not be too calamitous.

Roberto Pereyra scored twice, including a stunning volley, as Watford beat Brighton 2-0.

But Wolverhampton collected a point in a thrilling 2-2 draw with Everton. So much has changed at the central England team since it was last among the elite six years ago, with Chinese ownership investing heavily and utilising its business relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo's agent to attract players.

The visitors were reduced to 10 men five minutes before half-time when Phil Jagielka was shown a straight red card and Ruben Neves and Raul Jimenez hit back to salvage a point for the hosts. "Then in the second half the opponents were a bit exhausted and it was easier".
