Wagner celebrates Huddersfield securing their Premier League survival last season
That was the biggest threat to Chelsea'sgoal, with the Spain worldwide comfortably dealing with headers from Philip Billing and Laurent Depoitre.
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.
Sarri is known as a real character in the game and hit headlines last season for smoking in the tunnel while accompanied by personal bodyguards.
Kepa Arrizabalaga replaced Thibaut Courtois for a world-record fee for a goalkeeper in a chaotic finish to the transfer window this week, while doubts over the futures of Eden Hazard and Willian have dogged Chelsea's pre-season preparations. Alex Pritchard and Steven Mounie combined well at times in the first half, but produced few clear-cut chances.
"I don't want to do another Napoli, I want to do a Chelsea", Sarri told a news conference.
"Then I think in the second half the opponents were a bit exhausted and it was easier".
Huddersfield boss David Wagner felt his side "tried everything" in their 3-0 defeat at home to Chelsea, but accepts the result was deserved.
It may have only been Huddersfield and Chelsea did have a slice of luck or two, with Steve Mounie's shot coming off the post with the score at 1-0 and with a debatable penalty shout leading to the second but three points was the main goal.
"This was a goal that was easily avoidable because we have spoken about this situation the whole week, how we like to defend, and we have seen we have to be switched on. It will be very important for us".
"We are lucky now because we can work with one match a week".
"We are not a physical team and I think the best of the game is the capacity of suffering for 15 minutes".
Before we get to the goal reactions, though, let's just pause for one Twitter user, who informed his users that Kante did not have this kind of thing in his locker. He did not want a new defender to help with a switch to a back four from the three-man alignment preferred by Antonio Conten and neither was he keen on another striker, despite the struggles last season of Alvaro Morata. 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. Jorginho will clearly be the key, the expert at quickly shifting the ball that Sarri knows well from Napoli.
