Chelsea's new signing, Kepa Arrizabalaga, impressed teammate Antonio Rudiger in his Premier League victory at Huddersfield.

Kepa, the world's most expensive goalkeeper after his move of £ 72.1 million from Athletic Bilbao on Thursday, had little to do with his debut as Chelsea managed a 3-0 victory in Maurizio Sarri's first game in charge .

But the German defender Rudiger was pleased that the first appearance of the Spaniard has passed without incident after the controversial departure of Thibault Courtois.

"I think he (Kepa) did well," Rudiger said. & # 39; He tried to talk as much as he could. He did well with that and we, as defenders, needed to help him and we did it.

"In general, it was a very good day, we all know the quality of Thibault, but Thibault is no longer a Chelsea player.

"I wish him good luck at Real Madrid, but now we have to concentrate on Kepa because he is our goalkeeper, and in his job, he has a lot of confidence."

Chelsea was found wanting the Community Shield defeat last week against Manchester City, but it proved too good for Huddersfield despite leaving Eden Hazard World Cup stars Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Olivier Giroud on the bench.

"We are happy because, to be honest, our preseason games were not so good," Rudiger said. "But today we can be happier because we won the game." Three objectives and a clean sheet. That is good for us

"It's not always easy to adapt because it's a new style of play, but I think we did well, we moved the ball well and having a good bench is always good."

Huddersfield had given his best before going behind N & # 39; Golo Kante with a volley scored in the 34th.

The Terriers took a big hit just before halftime, when Chelsea was awarded a penalty by Christopher Schindler's sliding tackle over Marcos Alonso.

The summer signing Jorginho became a trademark style from the starting point, he threatened during his career to send the Huddersfield debutant, Ben Hamer, backwards and caress the ball in the opposite corner.

Huddersfield striker Steve Mounie's header hit inside a post when David Wagner's team responded well to Kante's first goal before Pedro took home the third goal after being placed by substitute Hazard in the second weather.

"We had a very good first half, but we know that Chelsea, when you face a team like this, are very clinical," Mounie said.

"You have to take advantage of your opportunities and (luck) was not on our side, unfortunately, so we go ahead and keep working, it's just the first game."

Mounie opposed Jorginho's blatant fine and added: "It was strange.

He jumped before the penalty and Ben (Hamer) had already dived, so I do not know why the referee did not re-take the penalty.

& # 39; It was a little weird. The referee needs to explain that to us because I do not understand why (it was not retaken).
