And in the first game of the season it brought some reward with the French World Cup victor scoring the opener against Huddersfield.

Chelsea took the lead through N'Golo Kante.

He was at the heart of a counter-attack that produced Chelsea's third goal as he broke from midfield and slipped a pass to Pedro, who beat Hamer with an expert finish. As such, the fact they won 3-0 anyway is a good sign that the acclimatisation period might not be too calamitous.

Chelsea were tested by Huddersfield's height and physicality in a scrappy first half that saw striker Steve Mounie crash a header off the post with the score 1-0, and Sarri said Premier League refereeing will be another element of his adjustment to English football. The two goals were Chelsea's only two shots on target in the first half.

Speaking after the game, the Italian was pleased with how his side got the job done against a "physical" Huddersfield line-up.

Jorginho, whose passing was near-faultless throughout, feinted during his run-up before rolling the ball in, leaving the goalkeeper flatfooted. The Belgian global broke down the middle and patiently waited for the right opportunity to pass before playing in Pedro, who dinked a nice finish.

Chelsea scored the fewest goals of the top six last season and have also struggled in that department in pre-season. But the Blues were clearly the better side on the day despite not kicking into gear under Sarri just yet.

"From the physical point of view, it's different", the Chelsea boss said, comparing the Premier League to Serie A.

"He is a great player and I would like to be always at his side, let's see what happens in the future".

"I don't want to do another Napoli, I want to do a Chelsea", Sarri told a news conference. We have to improve in this month, then it might be hard with the national teams.

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

"We have to improve to defend in the other half, to press against three defenders".
