If you see the result, you think it was a very easy match, but in the first half it was very hard against physical opponents.

Chelsea took the lead through N'Golo Kante.

He created Chelsea's third goal for Pedro just minutes after coming on and whilst Huddersfield were already a beaten side by that point, he ran riot and was at his sizzling best gliding past players.

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

This will mean Barkley may once again find himself sitting on the bench at Chelsea, fighting with Ruben Loftus-Cheek for a spot as Kovacic's back up.

Huddersfield showed their spirit by continuing to attack and striker Steve Mounie headed against the post after Mathias Jorgensen had flicked on a corner. He took responsibility for the penalty won by Alonso and the cool, clinical manner in which he scored suggests he may get further opportunities even when regular taker Hazard is on the pitch.

"We started very well, on the front foot, and then the first goal came out of nothing". Jorginho jogged up, did a little hop and then rolled the penalty to Ben Hamer's left.

The 26-year-old was one of the best players at the World Cup in Russian Federation but he did not return for training at Chelsea according to the Metro.

Job done for Chelsea and Sarri. The Belgian global broke down the middle and patiently waited for the right opportunity to pass before playing in Pedro, who dinked a nice finish.

The west London club moved quickly to bring in the 23-year-old Spaniard after they agreed a deal to sell Thibaut Courtois to Real Madrid last week.

"He is a great player and I would like to be always at his side, let's see what happens in the future. We did it better in the second half, there was more space and time". "I hope in this month to improve the team". "They had five chances and scored three goals", Wagner told reporters.

For long spells in the first half, David Wagner's side seemed to have Chelsea more or less where they wanted them.

There were questions over whether Huddersfield could keep things rolling after their achievement last season and they really didn't play badly, especially in the first half.
