#EPL : Huddersfield 0-3 Chelsea : Jorginho on target as Maurizio Sarri starts with a win




Jorginho scored on his Chelsea debut as Maurizio Sarri’s tenure began with a 3-0 win over Huddersfield at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Jorginho, a £57m summer signing from Sarri’s former club Napoli, netted from the penalty spot (45) after N’Golo Kante had opened the scoring with a first-time finish from Willian’s cross (34).

Steve Mounie hit the post for Huddersfield in between those goals, but Chelsea dominated the second half, adding their third goal when Eden Hazard, who started the game on the bench following his World Cup excursions, set up Pedro (80).
