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

Real Madrid transfer news

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri made a winning start to life in the Premier League as his team enjoyed a 3-0 win over Huddersfield Town at the John Smith's Stadium on Saturday.

The World Cup victor started his first game under the tutelage of Maurizio Sarri against Huddersfield and proved to be the most unlikely goalscorer when he found the net 34 minutes into the trip to the John Smith Stadium with a bouncing side-foot volley with his weaker left peg.

The Croat will compete for playing time with N'Golo Kante, Jorginho, Cesc Fabregas, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Danny Drinkwater, and Ross Barkley.

Speaking in an interview with Chelsea FC's website, he said: "I think I will be able to adapt and I find his style, his ideas and how he likes to play very attractive".

And that was when Chelsea grew into the game, with the Italian getting a feel of the opposition and exposing their weaknesses with the same quick short passes which he did so well at Napoli.

The midfielder, who joined manager Maurizio Sarri in moving from Napoli in July, scored in the 45th minute to help usher in the new era at Chelsea.

'We are lucky now as for four weeks we have only have a match a week. This would have been one for Huddersfield, but it is still early.

But it's either Morata or Olivier Giroud after Chelsea failed to sign a striker in the summer transfer window. However, this was forgiven just before half-time when he made a buccaneering break into the Huddersfield box and drew a foul to secure the penalty which Jorginho converted. Jorginho stepped up and cooly found the back of the net.

"We were in trouble for 15 minutes against a physical team, we are not a physical team". You can't switch on against a top-quality team like Chelsea.

Callum Hudson-Odoi was tipped to start after a bright preseason.

But the 17-year-old was left out of the matchday squad altogether, with Pedro and Willian starting out wide and Hazard and Victor Moses the options from the bench. While he didn't score, the Spaniard's hold-up play was impressive.

It's a tricky start to the season, and after facing Cardiff on Matchday 3, Huddersfield then takes on Everton, Crystal Palace, Leicester, Tottenham, Burnley and Liverpool.
