The striker eventually got on the scoresheet in stoppage time to secure Bournemouth a first win in their opening Premier League fixture.

Chelsea FC appointed Maurizio Sarri as Conte's successor in July after the Italian coach led Napoli to runners up spot last season.

Chelsea name the most expensive goalkeeper in world football, Kepa Arrizabalaga, between the sticks, while at the back Sarri goes with Cesar Azpilicueta, Antonio Rudiger, David Luiz and Marcos Alonso.

Kante, back on duty just 27 days after starting France's win over Croatia in the World Cup final, scored the opener, thumping a volley into the ground and past goalkeeper Ben Hamer from a Willian cross.

If Sarri wants to make changes during the course of the game then he can look to his bench, where options available include Eden Hazard and Olivier Giroud.

More flashes of what Chelsea fans can expect from "Sarri-ball" would have been anticipated and they received a brilliant example when Ross Barkley flicked Jorginho's pass into the run of Alonso, who won the penalty from Schindler.

Alex Pritchard was a unsafe creative force in the final third, Steve Mounié came close on three occasions and hit the post with a close-range header just minutes after Kanté opened the scoring.

TOWN'S Premier League season got off to a losing start against Chelsea.

The new head coach was helped by a returning World Cup victor and a new signing.

But they were linked with one - a very good one at that.

Roberto Pereyra scored both goals as Watford started with a 2-0 home victory over Brighton.

Two of Jorge Mendes' clients netted for Wolves as they twice came from behind: Ruben Neves and Raul Jimenez.

Neves cancelled out Richarlison's debut goal for Everton directly from a freekick after Phil Jagielka was dismissed for a risky sliding challenge on Diogo Jota.

It would do a discredit to the style of play to say Chelsea began to fully embrace "Sarriball" in the second half, but there was certainly a more attacking approach adopted as Chelsea looked to put the game out of sight.
