Maurizio Sarri already has some 'regrets' over Chelsea's transfer window

He will now play a key role in the west London outfit's season and can hopefully win more titles with them.

Callum Hudson-Odoi was tipped to start after a bright preseason.

But there was no instant return on that investment as Jeffrey Schlupp and Wilfried Zaha scored either side of half-time to give Palace a 2-0 win at Craven Cottage. On the second-half performance alone, Chelsea will be a lot of fun to watch this season. It is to his credit that the Chelsea back four were happy playing right on top of him as well.

"I don't know, he has always kicked the penalty like this", Sarri shrugged.

Starting XI: Hamer (6), Kongolo (7), Hogg (7), Billing (6), Mooy (6), Lowe (7), Pritchard (7), Mounie (7), Zanka (6), Schindler (5), Hadergjonaj (6).

He scored his first senior team goal with a lovely move around his defender and a fine finish to the far post. This was backed up by the fact Pogba was made captain for the match last night.

Substitutes: Lossl, Smith, Diakhaby, Ramadan, Van la Parra, Depoitre (6), Stankovic.

Huddersfield were a persistent threat from crosses into the box and they went close to an equaliser when Steve Mounie headed Mathias Jorgensen's flick-on against the inside of the upright.

Sarri has signed Napoli midfielder Jorginho in a £57m deal and England veteran Rob Green in the summer transfer window. 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.

Sarri has quite a task on his hands getting this Chelsea squad up to speed and there were concerns heading into the match. The experienced goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois spent the first half of the week absent without leave to force through his move to Real Madrid, with the replacement, Kepa Arrizabalaga, recruited only on Wednesday night.

World Cup victor Kante's scruffy 34th-minute volley and Jorginho's audacious penalty on the stroke of half-time put Chelsea in control before Pedro wrapped up the points in the closing stages.

In addition to disrupting air traffic control, the incident also caused alarm among locals, many of whom recorded the incident. One witness filmed the plane doing a large loop-the-loop, which they first thought was part of an air show rehearsal.

Chelsea: Kepa, Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Luiz, Alonso, Jorginho, Kante, Barkley (Loftus-Cheek 68), Willian (Hazard 72), Pedro (Moses 81), Morata.

"Then we were 2-0 down after I think a good half and I think second half we started very slow, we were shocked".

However, once Jorginho had doubled Chelsea's advantage from the spot shortly before the interval, Town lost their way and could have few complaints at the score come the final whistle.
