Huddersfield Town vs. Chelsea - Football Match Report

Postado Agosto 12, 2018

So how long will it take, Maurizio?

"I've seen the spirit, attitude and togetherness we need for our season".

Pedro sealed a comfortable win with a cool, chipped finish for Chelsea's third after being played in by substitute Eden Hazard. "I hope in this month to improve the team", he said.

Sarri utilised Jorginho in a deep role for large portions of Saturday's emphatic opening day victory over Huddersfield, which freed up N'Golo Kante to express himself further up the pitch.

Sarri, the 59-year-old Italian charged with resurrecting a Chelsea side which fell stagnant during the stewardship of former head coach Antonio Conte, started his Premiership career with a 3-0 win away to Huddersfield Town in the first round of games of the new English season this weekend.

"We have been working really hard with (Sarri)", he said.

"The second goal we conceded shortly before half-time is a goal which we should never concede".

Henrotay said the reason why Courtois missed the two days of training was because he was "a bit stressed by the situation" and while he understands the reaction, supporters must respect the decision given the reason.

"I think he (Kepa) did well", Rudiger said.

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. If you look at the result you can think of an easy game. "I thought yesterday the best thing for him was to play 15 or 20 minutes when the opposition were probably exhausted".

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

"In the first half, we were in trouble for 15 minutes against a very physical team". We made too many mistakes and missed our chances.

- Chelsea midfielder Jorginho has scored 90 per cent of the penalties he has taken in the top five European leagues (all competitions), converting 10 of his 11 spot kicks across three different clubs (Verona, Napoli and Chelsea).
