A very disappointing first half where the Blues Chelsea FC failed to have a single shot and shot on target in the first 30 minutes, meanwhile Huddersfield Town had two shots and one shot on target, even though Chelsea dominate the possession.
Chelsea lacked the attacking sense, unlike Mauricio Sarri’s playing style, where they had a lot of back and random passes which gave Huddersfield Town an advantage at a certain point. However, just after the first half an hour Chelsea scored a goal by N’Golo Kante and got a controversial penalty that Jorginho scored and finally, Pedro scored the third and final goal.
We will rate our players after every match, here are Chelsea Insider players ratings:
Kepa: Had a good match where he even cleared some balls outside of his area. Had some random passes, but it’s his debut. 7/10
Azpilicueta: Looked shaky at a right back position. 6/10
Rudiger: Was very shaky and poor. 5/10
Luiz: Had a good match after not playing for months. 7/10
Alonso: Committing silly fouls, a poor form as well. However, won a penalty for Chelsea. 6/10
Barkley: A poor form, didn’t really offer anything on the pitch today. 6/10
Kante: Even after playing the world cup final and having a shorter vacation, he’s always giving his best and being the difference in the midfield. 8/10
Jorginho: Even though he’s debuting, but his effort and passes are amazing. Scored his first goal with Chelsea as well. 8/10
Willian: A very average match, wasn’t that dangerous. But got an assist. 7/10
Morata: Keeps on missing chances. 5/10
Pedro: Didn’t offer anything in the attack during most of the match, but scored the third goal. 7/10
Hazard: One great assist in just a few minutes. 6/10
Moses: Not enough time to do anything. 5/10
Loftus-Cheek: Was okay. Not much to do. 5/10
Man of the match: It’s hard to choose between Jorginho and Kante, but Kante scored from open play and his effort was noticable on the pitch.
Mauricio Sarri (manager): A good win, but he was lucky to a point today. A harder work is needed especially against the stronger teams. 7/10
