Chelsea team news Kepa signed for £71million ahead of deadline day

Maurizio Sarri said Chelsea must use the rest of August to improve despite getting the Premier League season off to a flawless start with a 3-0 win over Huddersfield Town.

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.

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

He did not want a new defender to help with a switch to a back four from the three-man alignment preferred by Antonio Conten and neither was he keen on another striker, despite the struggles last season of Alvaro Morata.

When a team plays well but loses, it is sometimes hard to figure out if they have been wasteful or unlucky. "We really wanted to get something out of this game".

WORST PLAYER - Overall, Chelsea played a good game and no one was exactly terrible, but Alvaro Morata did little to improve his prospects.

"Then we were 2-0 down after I think a good half and I think second half we started very slow, we were shocked". "I thought yesterday the best thing for him was to play 15 or 20 minutes when the opposition were probably exhausted". If you look at the result, you can think about an easy game.

"We are not a physical team so for 20 minutes we were in trouble but we did very well". Unfortunately for Huddersfield and their manager David Wagner, Hazard was at his brilliant best. "But then I think the second half the opponents were maybe a bit exhausted, and it was a bit easier". We made too many mistakes and you have to be clinical and use your chances. We made a mistake in our frontline that led to the second goal which can not happen. I saw our spirit, togetherness and good attitude today, which is what we will need to be competitive this season.

"[Eden] Hazard is with us".

Jorginho's penalty raised eyebrows and delighted neutrals, the former Napoli midfielder deceiving goalkeeper Ben Hamer with a skip in his run-up before rolling the ball home. Jorginho will clearly be the key, the expert at quickly shifting the ball that Sarri knows well from Napoli.
