Huddersfield Town 0 Chelsea 3: Disappointing result, not display, claims Wagner

"I am really very happy because in the first part of the season, I think that for us, it is not easy to gain points", Sarri said.
Maurizio Sarri, recently appointed as Antonio Conte's replacement at Stamford Bridge, was known for smoking on the sidelines while at Napoli but was forced to find a workaround because of the smoking ban at EPL stadiums. You can't do that against Chelsea because they will hurt you, and that's exactly what they did.
However, Wagner denied suggestions his players had shown their opponents too much respect.
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.
Kepa was thrust straight into the startling line-up on Saturday at Huddersfield and Press Association Sport's Simon Peach looked at how he got on in Chelsea's 3-0 win. They were very clinical. We made a mistake in our frontline that led to the second goal which can not happen.
It was a ideal start for both players, too, with Kepa keeping a clean sheet and Jorginho scoring his first goal for the club. We did it better in the second, but in the second, there was more space and time. "I wish him good luck in Real Madrid but now we have to concentrate on Kepa because he's our goalkeeper". In the first line, we defended not like we wanted to defend.
Manchester United kicked off the season on Friday with a 2-1 win over Leicester City at Old Trafford.
After quite a few attempts to sign him, the eventual £150m valuation was just not good enough for the Spanish giants to get the attention of Chelsea.
"You have to use your chances and (luck) wasn't on our side unfortunately, so we keep going and keep working, it's only the first game".
As we know, Kante is not known for scoring goals but he's kept up his record of scoring at least one goal in a Premier League season by getting off to a flyer this afternoon.
