N'Golo Kante, Jorginho impress in new-look midfield as Chelsea cruise

N'Golo Kante, Jorginho impress in new-look midfield as Chelsea cruise

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri looks out from the sidelines during the Premier League match against Huddersfield, at the John Smith's Stadium in Huddersfield, England, Saturday Aug. 11, 2018.

The Terriers, meanwhile, were probably buoyed by the fact that their survival last season was helped by the point they gained against the Blues in their penultimate game of the campaign.

The winning goal came just 34 minutes in, as World Cup-winner N'Golo Kante scored with a nice finish to the far post. If you look at the result, you can think about an easy game, but in the first half we were in trouble for 15 minutes against a very physical team.

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 global commitments and the Europa League begin to disrupt Chelsea's schedule.

And Pedro wrapped up the scoring 10 minutes from time to give Sarri his dream start in the Premier League.

"Then we were 2-0 down after I think a good half and I think second half we started very slow, we were shocked". Jorginho will clearly be the key, the expert at quickly shifting the ball that Sarri knows well from Napoli.

Capping off his rant, Jordan wrote sarcastically , "But what do I know I'm just a guy who should stick to football". Right, members of his cabinet left on their own accord or were dismissed accordingly.

A corollary of the Italian international's arrival will be Kante playing a slightly more attacking role, his perpetual motion propelling himself forward a little more.

And while it nearly certainly wasn't Sarri's primary motivation for bringing in Jorginho, it is a shift that could be enormously positive. Under Sarri, they could be maximised. We have to improve in this month, then it might be hard with the national teams.

Kante is already recognised as one of the better midfielders in Europe for his ability to appear in many places at one time defensively.

"We have to improve to defend in the other half, to press against three defenders". Yet, they didn't test Chelsea debutant Kepa Arrizabagala almost enough. "We kept them away from our goal and as I said they scored out of nothing".

"We had the chance for the equaliser, but we hit the underside of the bar and this is what happens". Could they be potential title challengers this season?
