Maurizio Sarri already has some 'regrets' over Chelsea's transfer window

Chelsea travelled to Huddersfield on the opening weekend and produced a stunning performance, winning 3-0.

The ex-banker is known for employing a rigid 4-3-3 system and has so far demonstrated his enthusiasm to bring that system to Stamford Bridge.

With the arrival of Jorginho, Maurizio Sarri and Sarrismo, N'Golo Kante will find himself in a slightly more advanced position at Chelsea this season.

Despite dominating possession, Sarri's side looked uneasy early on and managed only two shots in the whole of the first half.

Hazard only returned to training recently after his run to the World Cup semifinals, and Sarri, sensing he was not in shape for 90 minutes, started him on the bench.

A strike from World Cup victor N'Golo Kante, Jorginho's penalty on debut and a late goal for Pedro were enough to hand Maurizio Sarri a first win in the Premier League.

But the game turned decisively towards the visitors when Chelsea doubled their advantage just before the interval as Marcos Alonso burst into the area and went down under challenge from Christopher Schindler.

"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.

Jorginho converted the penalty, a skip on his run-up leaving Hamer on his backside.

After Antonio Rudiger won an aerial battle inside his own half, Jorginho's neat touch played in Pedro who pushed forward before passing to Willian.

Sarri claimed that he couldn't simply replicate the attractive style for which he became famous at Empoli and Napoli but indicated that the next weeks would be critical.

As it was, David Wagner's team were unable to do enough to cause serious problems for Kepa on the young Basque 'keeper's debut.

Before the second goal, the Terriers had hit a post through Steve Mounie's header, but it was to be Sarri's and Chelsea's day. He marked his Premier League debut with a very cheeky penalty past Ben Hamer to make it 2-0 at half-time. Could they be potential title challengers this season?

The Blues may have been disappointing against Manchester City in the Community Shield last weekend but their Premier League campaign is up and running.
