Chelsea kicked off their Premier League campaign with an away win against Huddersfield. French midfielder N’Golo Kante opened the scoring with a 34th minute volley after Willian crossed from the left.
New signing Jorginho made it 2-0 with a well-taken penalty on the stroke of half time. Huddersfield battled for possession during the first 45 minutes but failed to trouble Kepa Arrizabalaga, the world’s most expensive goalkeeper who signed for Chelsea in a deal worth £72.1m. Former Barcelona striker Pedro added a third with a low angled shot into the bottom corner after controlling a precise pass by Eden Hazard who came off the bench with 15 minutes to go.
