Chelsea beat Huddersfield Town 3-0 in Maurizio Sarri's first Premier League match as head coach. 

2018 FIFA World Cup winner N'Golo Kante opened the scoring on 34 minutes with a first-time volley from Willian's cross.

Huddersfield Town striker Steve Mounie then headed against a post before Jorginho doubled Chelsea's lead in the last minute of the first half.

The summer signing converted a penalty after Marcos Alonso had been fouled by Christopher Schindler. 

Eden Hazard came off the bench to assist Pedro in the second half, while new Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga earned a clean sheet on his debut at John Smith's Stadium.
