Jorginho, Sarri debut with easy Chelsea win

A week after being swatted aside by Manchester City in the Community Shield, Chelsea beat Huddersfield 3-0 in Maurizio Sarri's first league match in charge. Chelsea were strong today, but I don't think we've shown too much respect.

"It depends on me and the players". The football didn't improve until the Italian delivered his team-talk, though - and they performed like a new team after the restart.

"I hope we can provide some entertaining football for our fans and that we will be competing for trophies at the end of the season, which is what this club deserves". We have to move the ball faster. That is not a surprise, perhaps, but it doesn't bode well for his chances of much playing time with Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Cesc Fabregas and Mateo Kovacic to come in.

The winning goal came just 34 minutes in, as World Cup-winner N'Golo Kante scored with a nice finish to the far post.

"I think that Eden in this moment can not play for 90 minutes, he needs to have training", Sarri said of the Belgium star. Was a menace throughout until he was replaced with 15 minutes to play. Maurizio Sarri's side bossed possession from the outset in West Yorkshire, where it took 20 minutes for Alex Pritchard to muster a shot on target - an attempt that was straight down the barrel and comfortably stopped.

"For sure in this moment, we are not at the top of our potential", he said.

Maurizio Sarri: 'I must adapt to Chelsea'
The Frenchman was replaced in the hole by new signing Jorginho , who has followed his manager from Napoli to south-west London. However, they will certainly need to be more clinical and penetrative if they are to build on last season's fine work.


Huddersfield boss David Wagner felt his side "tried everything" in their 3-0 defeat at home to Chelsea, but accepts the result was deserved. Maybe the performances in the first part of the season will not be in line with the potential of the squad. Huddersfield did well to frustrate them in the early going and it took some time before things started clicking.

"I've seen the spirit, attitude and togetherness we need for our season".

Chelsea started the first-half with the same languid approach that had optimised their pre-season, lacking any pace and incisiveness on the turn, instead reverting to an impassive and disjointed accumulation of short five-yard balls and careless clearances. We made a mistake in our frontline that led to the second goal which can not happen. 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.

She acknowledges she had never been able to obtain or hear the tapes but said three unnamed sources had described their contents. She said he then played it off as a joke but she knew he was serious.


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