"There has been a misunderstanding that he wanted to get a move for the wrong reasons, but he was pushing to go out of Chelsea because of his child", said Henrotay. Sarri had said that Chelsea were overthinking their play at times against Manchester City when they were well beaten in the Community Shield last week, but that was the football that Sarri's four weeks in charge have led up to and Jorginho was unsurprisingly involved.
Kepa 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 Huddersfield midfielder Aaron Mooy.
He was also involved in the move to win the penalty, as Pedro started the attack, allowing Jorginho to feed it into Ross Barkley with a perfectly-weighted pass and the England worldwide flicked it into Marcos Alonso's path to earn the penalty.
"I think the players have done everything, left everything on the grass".
You can see his first Chelsea goal by clicking here. He captained the side well and the defence looked cohesive under his watch.
And Pedro wrapped up the scoring 10 minutes from time to give Sarri his dream start in the Premier League.
DF Antonio Rudiger, 7 - Chelsea need a reliable rock at centre-back and Rudiger looked every inch the type of player who won't go missing when most needed. He took responsibility for the penalty won by Alonso and the cool, clinical manner in which he scored suggests he may get further opportunities even when regular taker Hazard is on the pitch.
Kante's goal, although not easy on the eye, swerved awkwardly toward the far corner. He leads the press and controls the space between the defensive and midfield line.
And indeed Hazard was excellent once he was introduced, producing several trademark dribbles, and setting up the goal that killed the game, carrying the ball up the middle before laying off to Pedro, who beat Ben Hamer with a lovely chipped finish. You can't switch on against a top-quality team like Chelsea.
FW Eden Hazard, NR - Put in a scintillating assist-providing cameo after replacing Willian for the final 15 minutes of the match.
