Sarri's Chelsea too good for Huddersfield

Sarri's Chelsea too good for Huddersfield

Of all the people who might have welcomed Antonio Conte's departure from Chelsea this summer, David Luiz was probably quite high on the list. But under the new regime, Luiz is back in the fold with a key role to play.

"I think he (Kepa) did well", Rudiger said. "We only have to carry on like we are doing now with him". "Then I think in the second half the opponents were a bit exhausted and it was easier".

Hazard only returned to training recently after his run to the World Cup semifinals, and Sarri, sensing he was not in shape for 90 minutes, started him on the bench.

Sarri also said he will continue to be cautious with Hazard, who looked a long way short of full fitness.

Cardiff City also tasted defeat on their return to the elite - midfielder Ryan Fraser's first-half goal and forward Callum Wilson's late strike securing the three points for Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium.

"The agreement (with Real Madrid) was about to be made", Henrotay explained on BBC Radio 5 live when asked about the act of "rebellion" by the goalkeeper. "He tried to speak as much as he can". "When we needed to help him, we helped him".

In an apparent bid to motivate the squad, Chelsea have taken to printing tweets from random supporters praising players onto the walls.

Chelsea's all-round effort ensures Maurizio Sarri makes winning start
Vertonghen and Alli struck either side of Joselu's equaliser for the Magpies with all three goals coming in the first 18 minutes. But the Blues were clearly the better side on the day despite not kicking into gear under Sarri just yet.

Klopp: We are the Rocky to City's Drago
Yes, we should try to win it this time. "We want to compete with the biggest teams like Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Barcelona". Dejan will not be available for the weekend, that's how it is.

Sarri utilised Jorginho in a deep role for large portions of Saturday's emphatic opening day victory over Huddersfield, which freed up N'Golo Kante to express himself further up the pitch.

And the visitors' decisive second just before half-time offered the flawless cameo of the chasm, ability-wise, between these teams.

The Terriers were then dealt a major blow just before half-time when Chelsea were awarded a penalty for Christopher Schindler's sliding tackle on Marcos Alonso.

"This is a big turnaround from where they've been in the last couple of years".

"This means we don't get carried away. We have a chance". We knew it would be hard.

Chelsea fans will be greeted with a first glimpse of Kepa Arrizabalaga in goal, with Maurizio Sarri handing the most expensive goalkeeper in the world a start against Huddersfield.

Kante volleyed the Blues ahead on 34 minutes after neat approach play from Pedro and Willian.
