Adjust Comment Print

Sarriball is underway in the Premier League and Chelsea fans are absolutely loving it, having watched their Blues march to a 3-0 away win over Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

"I want to do a good Chelsea. I have to adapt myself".

He said: "If money is the only thing that decides things, then we will be in the bottom three - but we were not in the bottom three last season". We have to move the ball faster. "Then in the second half the opponents were a bit exhausted and it was easier".

N'Golo Kante opened the scoring in the 20th minute by volleying in a cross from Willian, and after Marcos Alonso was taken down in the penalty area by Christopher Schindler, Jorginho stepped up and coolly netted with goalkeeper Ben Hamer frozen.

Hazard, like Courtois, was one of the best players at the World Cup and he would be crucial to our chances of doing well in the Premier League and the cup competitions. "The best thing for him was to play 15-20 minutes when the opposition was exhausted. If you see the result you think it was a very easy match but in the first half it was very hard against physical opponents", said Sarri.

Eyes were obviously on debutants Jorginho and Arrizabalaga and the pair gave excellent accounts of themselves, with the former scoring a cheeky penalty in the first half. But I think we did have a lot of unlucky situations.

At the same time, they did enough to unsettle Chelsea in attack, smartly deploying their numerous physical players and targeting Cesar Azpilicueta at right-back in particular.

"I don't know. I think there were some personal reasons, so I can not go on personal reasons".

Huddersfield boss David Wagner felt bad luck cost his side in the season-opener.

"Chelsea were very clinical".

"If we wanted to get something today, we had to be at our very best". I saw our spirit, togetherness and good attitude today, which is what we will need to be competitive this season.

They are bold words for the new coach of Chelsea, who has seen two of his predecessors, Luiz Felipe Scolari and Andre Villas-Boas, sacked after failing in the Stamford Bridge hot seat after only eight and nine months respectively by an owner in Abramovich not known for his patience. "We tried and created some opportunities, but Hazard showed his top quality for the third".

Jorginho, whose passing was near-faultless throughout, feinted during his run-up before rolling the ball in, leaving the goalkeeper flatfooted.
