Chelsea give Sarri flawless Premier League start at Huddersfield

Steven Paston  PA Wire Sarri is set for his first Premier League game

Those problems, Sarri admits, could come in the form of bad results - and the 59-year-old former Napoli coach, whose side open their Premier League campaign at Huddersfield today, believes that it might not even be until the second half of the season until his team click into gear.

New boss Maurizio Sarri has seemingly been unable to convince the Belgian that his future lies with Chelsea, with the latest updates indicating Musonda is still angling for an imminent departure.

More flashes of what Chelsea fans can expect from "Sarri-ball" would have been anticipated and they received a brilliant example when Ross Barkley flicked Jorginho's pass into the run of Alonso, who won the penalty from Schindler. Depoitre heads straight at Kepa, the Chelsea goalkeeper throws the ball back into play.

However, Sarri has looked to lower the expectations on his new signing by insisting Kepa - who could make his debut against Huddersfield Town on Saturday - still has a lot of improving to do before he can reach the level of Courtois. That was the biggest threat to Chelsea's goal, with the Spain worldwide comfortably dealing with headers from Philip Billing and Laurent Depoitre.

Things are looking good for Chelsea if he can maintain this sort of form.

"Then we were 2-0 down after I think a good half and I think second half we started very slow, we were shocked".

Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth may not be in Star Trek 4
The Marvel, DC and Star Wars movies all regularly pull in north of $700 million if they don't reach $1 billion worldwide. But according to The Hollywood Reporter , both the actors have quit the film after talks for salary negotiations failed.

One of the reasons why Chelsea splurged quite so much money was the goalkeeper's ability with his feet. Players are readjusting in terms of their positions, with centre-halves restored to a back four and Kanté, a World Cup victor, now flanking a creative midfield anchor and charged with a more attacking brief.

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. I don't know. It depends on the characteristics of the Premier League and of my players.

"I don't know. I think there were some personal reasons, so I can not go on personal reasons". The only pressure that I feel is my pressure, is inside, more than outside. So it was fun for the supporters. "I have to adapt myself". But I think we did have a lot of unlucky situations.

"It depends on me and the players".

Coaxing goals from a team who managed the least of last season's top six will be the priority and pre-season results have demonstrated a need for speed in the side's approach play if they are to be effective.
