Victor Moses revels in 'great' Chelsea start against Huddersfield Town

Chelsea midfielder Jorginho

Midfielder Jorginho joined Chelsea for £57m from Napoli this summer

He was at the heart of a counter-attack that produced Chelsea's third goal as he broke from midfield and slipped a pass to Pedro, who beat Hamer with an expert finish.

Despite dominating possession, Sarri's side looked uneasy early on and managed only two shots in the whole of the first half.

"We are not a physical team and I think the best of the game is the capacity of suffering for 15 minutes".

But despite the margin of victory Sarri concedes the Chelsea players are still not playing at the level he wants them to be. "Then in the second half the opponents were a bit exhausted and it was easier".

The World Cup victor started his first game under the tutelage of Maurizio Sarri against Huddersfield and proved to be the most unlikely goalscorer when he found the net 34 minutes into the trip to the John Smith Stadium with a bouncing side-foot volley with his weaker left peg.

But the nail in the coffin was not even being on the bench during Chelsea's recent Community Shield loss to Manchester City . CHELSEA star Willian has spoken about Barcelona's attempts to sign him after insisting he is happy to remain at the club.

WORST PLAYER - Overall, Chelsea played a good game and no one was exactly frightful, but Alvaro Morata did little to improve his prospects.

"I have to respect the characteristics of the players, I have to adapt myself to the characteristics of the championship and of the players, so now I am studying my players". Unfortunately for Huddersfield and their manager David Wagner, Hazard was at his brilliant best. All of them have told me what it's like to play here and I've had excellent references from them about the game here.

"I've seen the spirit, attitude and togetherness we need for our season".

Chelsea fans will be greeted with a first glimpse of Kepa Arrizabalaga in goal, with Maurizio Sarri handing the most expensive goalkeeper in the world a start against Huddersfield. We hit the bar twice - once when we were 1-0 down after conceding a very unlucky goal from a deflection. You can't switch on against a top-quality team like Chelsea. There were groans from some when the team was announced - the likes of Marcos Alonso, Willian and Alvaro Morata have not been popular with sections of Chelsea's support - but their performances vindicated Sarri's decisions.

"This is understandable after this good first half and you sit at half-time and you are 2-0 down".
