Jorginho, Sarri debut with easy Chelsea win

Jorginho, Sarri debut with easy Chelsea win

This is despite new Chelsea coach, Maurizio Sarri, insisting that the board don't sell the Belgian star this summer.

Sarri has had limited time to work with his new players but they strolled to all three points at the John Smith's Stadium. "But, for the moment, he's not Courtois, of course", Sarri told a pre-match press conference. "I have to respect the characteristics of the players, the championship and now I study my players". We hit the bar twice - once when we were 1-0 down after conceding a very unlucky goal from a deflection. "We kept them away from our goal and as I said they scored out of nothing. We moved the ball well and to have a good bench is always good".

"It was Chelsea's first chance more or less out of nothing and then we conceded the penalty, where we clearly made a big mistake".

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.

Real Madrid might raise their offer for Eden Hazard to around £200m (€224m) according to the 'Sunday Express'. "The best thing for him was to play 15-20 minutes when the opposition was exhausted".

Ronaldo taken to Ibiza hospital with pneumonia
No-one at the private hospital Ronaldo is now said to be a patient at could be contacted early on Sunday for comment. He was then transferred to a private hospital, and remains there, though he is reportedly making progress.

Huddersfield, employing a three-man backline, had impressed in the first half and could have cancelled out Kante's opener but Steve Mounie headed against the inside of the post.

The result propelled Chelsea to the summit of the league table while it looks like Huddersfield Town will have to fight tooth and nail to survive in the top-flight this year.

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

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