Huddersfield Town 0 Chelsea 3: Disappointing result, not display, claims Wagner

Asked how much he would change preseason, Sarri said: "Completely, I think".

The Italian's footballing philosophy was widely praised during his time in charge of Napoli, with the so-called "Sarri-ball" system helping the club to push Juventus all the way in the Serie A title race last season.

There was also no place in the squad for Ethan Ampadu, another young player to have impressed in pre-season, and Tammy Abraham who Sarri looks to have chosen as their third-choice striker ahead of Batshuayi. "But I have seen a player who is very happy to stay here, so I think it will be no problem, the new contract". I hope in this month to improve the team. In the first line, we defended not like we wanted to defend. We have to move the ball faster. "We did it better in the second half, there was more space and time".

Jorginho, N'Golo Kante, and Pedro all scored in Chelsea's 3-0 win at the John Smith's Stadium, with the Blues in a back four and featuring a new midfield of Ross Barkley, Jorginho, and Kante.

Sarri has backed Alvaro Morata to improve from a largely disappointing first season in English football and also has France World Cup victor Olivier Giroud to call upon, but conceded he would have relished the opportunity to work with Higuain again. "The best thing for him was to play 15-20 minutes when the opposition was exhausted. It will be very important for us".

The Cottagers, promoted after winning the play-off final at Wembley, had produced a positive first half, but went behind when Jeffrey Schlupp drilled in a left-foot shot on 41 minutes.

She then raced through the second set 6-1 with minimum fuss. "Obviously happy with my performance today". "When you're playing good matches in big tournaments like this, I don't think it's peaking too soon".

Maurizio Sarri warned that it may take "a couple of months" to implement his style of football at Chelsea, adding that he is expecting his team to encounter problems in the first half of the season.

"We are not a physical team and I think the best of the game is the capacity of suffering for 15 minutes".

Huddersfield boss David Wagner felt bad luck cost his side in the season-opener. Nobody scored fewer, which is something you could look at in two ways: Either 2017-18 showed they don't need to be prolific to stay up, or they were somewhat lucky to get away with having such a blunt attack.

And when the crosses did come in, Morata could not get himself on the end of them, being crowded out well by the Huddersfield defence.

The France midfielder was typically dominant with his usual duties, but surprisingly clinical with an extremely rare goal for the Blues in the first half. We hit the bar twice - once when we were 1-0 down after conceding a very unlucky goal from a deflection.
