Maurizio Sarri had a disgusting new habit on the touchline vs Huddersfield

Huddersfield Town v Chelsea FC - Premier League

If Chelsea's opening day victory over Huddersfield is to be an indication of what Maurizio Sarri has in store, then their supporters will be very happy.

The Blues triumphed 3-0, with goals from N'Golo Kante and Pedro sandwiching a Jorginho penalty.

It's worth remembering that the Terriers only narrowly escaped relegation last season but regardless, the five-time English champions deserve credit for getting their campaign underway in style.

If they keep up that form against Arsenal next weekend, Sarri will go some way towards banishing any doubts about his ability to cut it in the Premier League.

The Italian did superbly well with Napoli, not only implementing some pulsating football, but also mounting a serious title challenge in 2017/18.

As much as he will be hoping to replicate that at Stamford Bridge, he's having to make one unwanted adaptation: he can no longer smoke in the stadium in England.

Napoli had a special area of the stadium designated for him and Roman Abramovich is making no such concessions for him.

There are plenty of photos of him lighting up on the touchline in Serie A, which he won't be able to do anymore as Premier League stadia have been smoke-free since 2007.

Sarri has a new habit 

In light of that, Sarri found another way to relieve stress against Huddersfield - by chewing cigarette butts as he watched the game:

That can't be very pleasant, surely.

The 59-year-old had little reason to be anxious, though, as his new side looked very comfortable.

It already looks as though Sarri's reign is going to be fascinating. In his first press conference since taking charge, he admitted he was happy to acquiesce when it came to transfer business.

He is seemingly making his mark in other ways.
