Chelsea off to a flying start

Chelsea opened their Premier League campaign with victory against Huddersfield to give Maurizio Sarri his winning start in the league.

Sarri, who became the club’s 10th full-time manager in 10 years when he replaced the sacked Antonio Conte in the summer, saw his side take the lead with their first shot on target.

It came in the 34th minute when N’Golo Kante’s mis-hit strike from Willian’s cross bounced past Huddersfield goalkeeper Ben Hamer.

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.

Pedro sealed a comfortable win with a cool, chipped finish for Chelsea’s third after being played in by substitute Eden Hazard.

Meanwhile On Friday night, Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw were on the scoresheet as Manchester United beat Leicester City 2-1 at Old Trafford.
