Sarri's 'Spanish' Chelsea get off to ideal start

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri made a winning start to life in the Premier League as his team enjoyed a 3-0 win over Huddersfield Town at the John Smith's Stadium on Saturday.

Sarri was quoted by Metro as he spoke about the situation with Courtois and even added that Eden Hazard is happy to stay here.

The big problem last season was a lack of goals, however, and there was little here to suggest they won't struggle in that department again.

With the first global break four weeks away, Sarri says that only now can he really get to work, as World Cup stars such as Eden Hazard, Olivier Giroud and N'Golo Kante returned to training just last week.

Hazard - who is stalling on signing a new £300,000 a week deal - is not openly pushing to leave and has spoken to boss Sarri since returning from his break after the World Cup.

Goals from N'Golo Kanté, Jorginho from the penalty spot and a late Pedro finish ensured all three points for the visitors - though they could count themselves fortunate to hold a two-goal advantage going into the half-time interval.

Once Kovacic is up to speed with Chelsea and their new system, the Croatian is expected to occupy that third role in midfield alongside Kante and Jorginho, as a fitting replacement for Marek Hamsik whom Sarri had at Napoli.

Huddersfield felt hard done by because they believed that Christopher Schindler's boot-to-boot contact with Marcos Alonso was accidental.

Jorginho converted the penalty, a skip on his run-up leaving Hamer on his backside.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has dropped all interest in signing Chelsea ace Eden Hazard.

Sarri has committed himself to doing things his own way at Chelsea, promising attractive football and scrapping Antonio Conte's three-man defence in favour of the 4-3-3 set-up he employed at Napoli.

Pedro applied the finishing touch after Hazard accelerated forward with objective before unselfishly teeing up the Spaniard, who was cool and collected before lifting the ball over the onrushing Hamer, watching it trickle into the corner.

"We conceded the first goal out of nothing, a deflection goal and then we were unlucky when Steve Mounie only hit the inside of the post". The team has to head to Manchester City next week.

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.
