Pedro sealed a comfortable win with a cool, chipped finish for Chelsea's third after being played in by substitute Eden Hazard.
The Italy worldwide, who was shaking his head in disbelief at Hazard's ability, made an immediate beeline for his new teammate as he got back on his feet.
In midfield, new signing Jorginho plays, alongside N'Golo Kante, while Ross Barkley, Willian and Pedro Rodriguez support Alvaro Morata. Marcos Alonso was hacked down and Chelsea were awarded a penalty.
The France midfielder was typically dominant with his usual duties, but surprisingly clinical with an extremely rare goal for the Blues in the first half.
It would do a discredit to the style of play to say Chelsea began to fully embrace "Sarriball" in the second half, but there was certainly a more attacking approach adopted as Chelsea looked to put the game out of sight.
"We conceded the first goal out of nothing, a deflection goal and then we were unlucky when Steve Mounie only hit the inside of the post".
Here's what to know about the Chelsea win.
There were occasional signs of hesitancy in defence early on that a stronger team than Huddersfield might have exploited, but to criticise Chelsea beyond that would be harsh.
"We have to improve to defend in the other half, to press against three defenders".
"In general, it was a very good day. The ref needs to explain that to us because I don't understand why (it was not retaken)".
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. Rudiger is adjusting to partnering David Luiz in the heart of defence, and both men were more convincing against Huddersfield than they were against Manchester City in the Community Shield. You can't switch on against a top-quality team like Chelsea.
"There's more opportunity of us creeping behind and coming to the front, only time will tell".
