Maurizio Sarri admits Gonzalo Higuain transfer regret

David Wagner is pleased with Huddersfield's transfer business

Here are the winners and losers from the match.

Yet, goals from N'Golo Kante, Jorginho and Pedro Rodriguez at the John Smith's Stadium papered over the cracks for now and raised expectations of what Chelsea could be capable of once Sarri imposes the attacking style he became known for in three years at Napoli. On Monday four players from the World Cup arrived.

Kante is already recognised as one of the better midfielders in Europe for his ability to appear in many places at one time defensively.

When asked how long it could take for his players to be at their best, Sarri surprised many with his response.

But the Spaniard just looked a yard off pace from the start with sloppy passing and some poor first touches.

FW Alvaro Morata, 7 - Led the line enthusiastically, held up the ball well when in possession and looked confident enough to suggest the goals that have been missing from his game will come soon enough if Sarri persists with him.

Before we get to the goal reactions, though, let's just pause for one Twitter user, who informed his users that Kante did not have this kind of thing in his locker.

Space Force: everything you need to know about the White House proposal
Democratic Senator Brian Schatz, who is on the Defense Appropriations subcommittee, said the Space Force was a 'dumb idea'. Finally, the proposal recommends creating a Space Operations Force consisting of space technology and warfare experts.

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.

Town were flat on the restart and Pedro added a third ten minutes from time with a dinked finish over Ben Hamer.

The World Cup victor started his first game under the tutelage of Maurizio Sarri against Huddersfield and proved to be the most unlikely goalscorer when he found the net 34 minutes into the trip to the John Smith Stadium with a bouncing side-foot volley with his weaker left peg.

And that was when Chelsea grew into the game, with the Italian getting a feel of the opposition and exposing their weaknesses with the same quick short passes which he did so well at Napoli.

"It was Chelsea's first chance more or less out of nothing and then we conceded the penalty, where we clearly made a big mistake". Jorginho coolly converted the penalty.

Kepa, signed from Atheltic Bilbao for £72.1million on Thursday, had little to do for the opening 20 minutes as Chelsea hogged the ball, but made a hash of an early touch when he passed straight to Town midfielder Aaron Mooy.

However, on the final day of England's summer transfer window, Chelsea confirmed the loan-signing of Mateo Kovacic from Real Madrid as part of the deal which saw Thibaut Courtois go the other way. You can't switch on against a top-quality team like Chelsea.
