Jorginho, who followed Sarri from Naples to West London, made no mistake from the spot when he shouldered the responsibility to extend the visitors' lead on his Premier League debut. We have to improve in this month, then it might be hard with the national teams.
The Belgian made a burst from his own half that drew Huddersfield defenders towards him before rolling a diagonal pass for Pedro to slot in the third. Midfielders N'golo Kante and Jorginho struck in the first half and Pedro's calm finish in the second half ensured that Chelsea were never really in trouble for most of the game.
The midfielder has established himself as one of the best defensive midfielders in the world in recent years, playing a pivotal role in helping both Leicester and Chelsea win the Premier League title.
Ostensibly that absence was because of knee and thigh injuries but it was also clear that he and Conte were, shall we say, not the best of friends after a disagreement over tactics last season. "We moved the ball well and to have a good bench is always good".
"We are lucky now because we can work with one match a week". Maurizio Sarri's tried and tested 4-3-3 formation helped the Blues establish a free-flowing possession based game at the John Smith's Stadium.More news: Palestinian mother and child killed in Gaza-Israel exchange of fire
Oblak would have been a good signing to replace Courtois but Kepa Arrizabalaga certainly looked good in his first outing for us in the 3-0 win over Huddersfield yesterday.
"I am really very happy because in the first part of the season I think it is not easy for us to gain points", Sarri said.
While Sarri left smiling, Huddersfield manager David Wagner felt his side had shown encouraging signs despite the scoreline. Three goals and a clean sheet.
"I don't want to do another Naples", Sarri said after the game, per the Daily Mail.
"That's why I'm confident enough to know we have a chance to be successful this season".
