N'Golo Kante Equals His Best Premier League Goals Tally

Huddersfield vs Chelsea

Chelsea defeated Huddersfield Town 3-0 to take their place at the top of the Premier League table.

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

Here are the winners and losers from the match.

And in the first game of the season it brought some reward with the French World Cup victor scoring the opener against Huddersfield. Their play was much more fluid; they adopted the style of football Sarri likes his teams to play.

Chelsea FC finished in fifth spot in the Premier League table last season to miss out on a Champions League spot. "We did it better in the second half, there was more space and time".

But the Spaniard just looked a yard off pace from the start with sloppy passing and some poor first touches.

It took us a while to get going, but once we did, Huddersfield didn't stand a chance. Chelsea understood the situation and really helped to get the deal.

Karim Benzema opened the scoring after just two minutes of play, and in a season where he will be required to produce more goals that was the flawless start, something the coach is aware of. Alonso broke into the box and was tripped by Christopher Schindler. They were not dominant, but kept their theoretically superior opponents from making too many threatening attacks, happy for Chelsea to pass the ball around in deep positions.

The 23-year-old signed a seven-year deal after completing his world-record £72.1million move from Athletic Bilbao as the Blues replaced Real Madrid-bound Thibaut Courtois.

The Blues' new star in the midfield is Jorginho, who came over to Chelsea with Sarri from Napoli. Willian dashed down the left and stood up a cross that found its way to Kante at the back post.

"We were in trouble for 15 minutes against a physical team, we are not a physical team".

"A disappointing result, not a disappointing performance, especially the first half", the Terriers boss said. You can't switch on against a top-quality team like Chelsea.
