Chelsea, Tottenham dispel doubts with winning starts in English Premier League

Chelsea team news Huddersfield

Alex Pritchard was a unsafe creative force in the final third, Steve Mounié came close on three occasions and hit the post with a close-range header just minutes after Kanté opened the scoring.

WORST PLAYER - Overall, Chelsea played a good game and no one was exactly terrible, but Alvaro Morata did little to improve his prospects. "We did it better in the second half, there was more space and time".

However, once Jorginho had doubled Chelsea's advantage from the spot shortly before the interval, Town lost their way and could have few complaints at the score come the final whistle.

The football didn't improve until the Italian delivered his team-talk, though - and they performed like a new team after the restart.

"I am very happy because in the first part of the season for us it is not easy to gain points".

Kepa Arrizabalaga debuted in goal, keeping a clean sheet, while Cesar Azpilicueta, Marcos Alonso, Alvaro Morata and goalscorer Pedro also started in Sarri's first Premier League game on the sideline.

45' - GOAL! Huddersfield 0-2 Chelsea: Two shots on target, two goals from Chelsea.

Eyes were obviously on debutants Jorginho and Arrizabalaga and the pair gave excellent accounts of themselves, with the former scoring a cheeky penalty in the first half.

Antonio Rudiger's header from Willian's corner was well saved by Hamer, low down to his left, and Alonso's acrobatic volley from another set-piece soon after clipped the crossbar. That would have been something.

Roberto Pereyra bagged his first top-flight brace as Watford claimed three points in their opener with a 2-0 victory against Brighton & Hove Albion. Executed by Hazard, finished by Pedro. Sarri is famed for getting the best out of his strikers, but said: "In Naples, we played at great speed, ball forward, ball back, with continuity, with great speed with the strikers".

Pedro applied the finishing touch after Hazard accelerated forward with goal before unselfishly teeing up the Spaniard, who was cool and collected before lifting the ball over the onrushing Hamer, watching it trickle into the corner. The Spaniard applies the finish, lifting the ball over Hamer.
