0:45 Wagner insists keeping Christopher Schindler is a big statement from Huddersfield

Chelsea kick-started their Premier League campaign in the flawless fashion, comprehensively dispatching of a weak Huddersfield team 3-0 at the John Smith's Stadium.

Hazard only returned to training recently after his run to the World Cup semifinals, and Sarri, sensing he was not in shape for 90 minutes, started him on the bench.

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

The opening half-hour of Sarri's competitive managerial career in England had...

Goals from N'Golo Kanté, Jorginho from the penalty spot and a late Pedro finish ensured all three points for the visitors - though they could count themselves fortunate to hold a two-goal advantage going into the half-time interval.

Huddersfield enjoyed more possession towards the half-hour mark as Steve Mounie's rising effort cleared the crossbar and a series of crosses from Town left-back Chris Lowe tested Chelsea's defence.

The driver fled the scene and Szabo - unconscious - was rushed to the hospital in critical condition early Sunday, officials said. The family said Szabo was waiting on a ride to take him to the hotel and was knocking on auto windows.

Kante is already recognised as one of the better midfielders in Europe for his ability to appear in many places at one time defensively.

Jorginho followed Sarri from Napoli to Chelsea in the summer and the midfielder doubled the Blues' lead when he converted a penalty after Christopher Schindler fouled Marcos Alonso.

Here's what to know about the Chelsea win. "In this moment we are not at the top of our potential but we had the capacity to suffer for 20 minutes in the first half".

"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", Henrotay told BBC 5 live Sportsweek programme.

After a frustrating debut against City, Jorginho produced a fine display at the base of Chelsea's midfield. 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.

The big problem last season was a lack of goals, however, and there was little here to suggest they won't struggle in that department again.
