Maurizio Sarri will be delighted to have kept hold of his main man during the transfer window and this performance will give all Chelsea fans encouragement for the rest of the season.

Kepa completed a world-record 80-million-euro switch from Athletic Bilbao on Thursday as a replacement for Courtois, who joined Real Madrid.

"The situation until now has been very hard". "He's very young, 23, so I hope he can improve very fast", said Sarri.

But Kepa was rarely troubled in recording a clean sheet as the visitors' greater quality told at the John Smith's Stadium after a slow start.

"The game was more hard than the result. But I have seen a player who is very happy to stay here, so I think it will be no problem, the new contract".

Chelsea midfielder N'golo Kante celebrates with his team-mates after scoring his team's first goal against Huddersfield Town.

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.

Chelsea's Premier League era under Maurizio Sarri is off to a superb start.

Wagner's Terriers could find more joy playing against the top flight's weaker sides if they continue in like manner.

FW Willian, 8 - Willian has also come in for unnecessary criticism from sections of Chelsea's support in recent weeks but, like Alonso, his contribution was pivotal when he assisted Kante's goal following a clever run.

"It is important to be strong from the beginning and have belief and convey a positive message", Pochettino said. Sarri's task, to familiarise new players with a style of play marked by those breathless breaks upfield that transform measured defence into feverish attack, will need more time.

Two of Jorge Mendes' clients netted for Wolves as they twice came from behind: Ruben Neves and Raul Jimenez.

So, after a summer wrecked by a lengthy period of uneasy inertia while Antonio Conte still called Cobham home, then a chaotic frenzy of change as Sarri was appointed and attempted to make an early impression on a skeleton squad, here was evidence a sense of calm realism has descended.

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.

Bournemouth were also comfortable victors over promoted Cardiff thanks to goals from Ryan Fraser and Callum Wilson.
