Jorginho, Sarri debut with easy Chelsea win


But while he said he was very happy to take three points, Sarri said that he hopes to get his players more in tune with his ideas before worldwide commitments and the Europa League begin to disrupt Chelsea's schedule.

Hazard - who is stalling on signing a new £300,000 a week deal - is not openly pushing to leave and has spoken to boss Sarri since returning from his break after the World Cup.

Part of that was down to the quality of Huddersfield's press, a positive sign for David Wagner's side after the more passive approach of last season, but Sarri's side didn't take care of the ball as well as their manager would've liked. We made too many mistakes and you have to be clinical and use your chances.

"Then in the best period which we had in the second half after 20-25 minutes where we hit the bar again, where we were unlucky, we conceded the third one and then at the end it was a deserved win for Chelsea".

"I think that Eden in this moment can not play for 90 minutes". In pre-season I was really very busy with other things, so I have to study week by week.

'I don't want to do another Naples, ' said Sarri.

Sarri's half-time talk proves effective: There was some cause for concern after Chelsea's first-half performance.

With Eden Hazard on the bench, Jorginho was chosen to take a Chelsea penalty after Alvaro Morata was clipped in the box by a Huddersfield Town defender - and the Italian mystified goalkeeper Ben Hamer with a signature hesitation move in his penalty run-up.

'The difference from the physical it is different. We have to move the ball faster. "I have seen passion, desire, the spirit we usually have in our game". "For the referees, it is different, really different". He had a couple of routine saves to make, gathering a dipping long-range shot from Alex Pritchard in the first half, and falling on a tame header from substitute Laurent Depoitre in the second. And useful for the results, I think.

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. If we are able to play at another speed, maybe scoring will not be a problem for us.
