Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri was delighted to start Premier League life with a comprehensive victory at Huddersfield, although the difference in physicality and refereeing is going to take some getting used to.

Chelsea had to dig deep early on against Huddersfield but went in at the break with a two-goal cushion thanks to N'Golo Kante and Jorginho. Pedro wrapped up a 3-0 win. "I am happy because in the first part of the season it's not easy for us to gain points," the Chelsea boss said.

"The first half was hard. If you look at the result, you'll feel it was an easy game, but in the first half we were in trouble for 15 minutes against a physical team. "We are not a physical team and I think the best of the game is the capacity to suffer for 15 minutes."
