Maurizio Sarri anticipates early season 'problems' before Chelsea reach full potential

But while he said he was very happy to take three points, Sarri said that he hopes to get his players more in tune with his ideas before global commitments and the Europa League begin to disrupt Chelsea's schedule.

The new head coach was helped by a returning World Cup victor and a new signing.

It's not to sign new contracts.

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

Discussing his arrivals, the manager said: "The club was willing and we took a great goalkeeper, very young but he can become a great goalkeeper". "I think if we play Chelsea at home most people would expect us to concede a defeat, which we've got, and at the end it was a deserved defeat". He will now play a key role in the west London outfit's season and can hopefully win more titles with them.

Maurizio Sarri has claimed that Thibaut Courtois' move to Real Madrid on the last day of the transfer window was motivated by personal reasons. The players in this moment need to think what to do too much, and so the ball is not moved at the right speed, material and mental, at this moment.

In a tense first half, Chelsea took the lead through N'Golo Kante after a quick counter-attack and Jorginho doubled their advantage just before half-time from the penalty spot.

Sarri acknowledged that his team struggled against Huddersfield in the first half on Saturday because they lacked the tactical grounding is his way of playing to adapt to Huddersfield's back three - a system they hadn't yet faced in pre-season.

"From the physical point of view, it is different", he said. He had a couple of routine saves to make, gathering a dipping long-range shot from Alex Pritchard in the first half, and falling on a tame header from substitute Laurent Depoitre in the second.

"I think the players have done everything, left everything on the grass".

9 - With the exception of handing Kepa Arrizabalaga a debut in goal, Sarri played it safe with his first league line-up by opting for experienced heads to do his high-press bidding. So we were not ready for this situation and it was a problem and this team did not have the experience against this.
