Sarri not aiming to repeat Napoli formula at Chelsea

Sarri not aiming to repeat Napoli formula at Chelsea

New manager Maurizio Sarri has clearly put his faith in the Spaniard, not signing a new striker in the summer and allowing Michy Batshuayi to leave on loan to Valencia.

Maurizio Sarri's reign as Chelsea manager got off to the best possible start with an eye-catching 3-0 win away at Huddersfield.

"I think the players have done everything, left everything on the grass".

"We are lucky now because we can work with one match a week". We have to improve in this month, then it might be hard with the national teams. I hope in this month to improve the team.

The big problem last season was a lack of goals, however, and there was little here to suggest they won't struggle in that department again. We have to move the ball faster. Even with 10 men, Brazilian forward Richarlison restored Everton's lead in the second half but Neves swung in a cross that was headed in by Jimenez to restore parity.

Chelsea were lacking dynamism and conviction as Huddersfield sat deep and proved hard to break down, but Pedro's driving run and pass out to Willian enabled the Brazilian to pick out Kante, who scuffed a left-footed volley into the ground and inside the far post in the 34th minute. "The best thing for him was to play 15-20 minutes when the opposition was exhausted".

As we know, Kante is not known for scoring goals but he's kept up his record of scoring at least one goal in a Premier League season by getting off to a flyer this afternoon. If you look at the result you can think of an easy game.

In the third set, the teenager showed great composure to break for a 2-0 lead and then saved a break point for a 3-0 margin. In other results, fourth seed and Wimbledon runner-up Kevin Anderson downed Ilya Ivashka of Belarus in straight sets.

"We were in trouble for 15 minutes against a physical team, we are not a physical team".

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

Huddersfield boss David Wagner accepted his side were roundly outplayed, highlighting defensive errors as contributing to a heavy home loss.

"Chelsea were very clinical".

There were howls of protest from the stands, but Huddersfield's players were broadly quiet, and rightly so. Chelsea were strong today, but I don't think we've shown too much respect.

N'Golo Kante scored the first goal of the game, playing in a notably advanced role while the likes of Pedro and Willian proved useful out wide. We made a mistake in our frontline that led to the second goal which can not happen.

Undisturbed by the pressure and jeering of the Huddersfield fans, Jorginho calmly dispatched his penalty with a skip before striking the ball - a technique some at Chelsea will have already seen in their pre-season shootouts.
