Sarri off the mark as Chelsea ease past Mooy's Huddersfield

Jose Mourinho has endured a tough pre-season with Manchester United

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

Chelsea were lacking dynamism and conviction as Huddersfield sat deep and proved hard to break down, but Pedro's driving run and pass out to Willian enabled the Brazilian to pick out Kante, who scuffed a left-footed volley into the ground and inside the far post in the 34th minute.

Sarri was spotted on numerous occasions during his career in Italy smoking in stadiums, or on the sidelines, such as the clip below where he lit up in the company of two bodyguards. "I hope in this month to improve the team", he said.

Maybe it's time to invest in some nicotine patches, Maurizio?

Maurizio Sarri's side bossed possession from the outset in West Yorkshire, where it took 20 minutes for Alex Pritchard to muster a shot on target - an attempt that was straight down the barrel and comfortably stopped.

'Maybe for Napoli in the a year ago it wouldn't have been a problem but for Chelsea, with some of the players only having had three days of training, it was a problem'.

Sarri said: "You have to wait for a couple of months".

Pedro wrapped up a 3-0 opening-day win after star turn Eden Hazard came off the bench as Sarri's men made a confident start to the campaign, looking far stronger than last weekend's Community Shield loss to Manchester City.

Kepa had just one save to make in the game but was quick off his line to snuff out danger, and also showcased his aerial ability to claim high balls pumped into the penalty area during the 3-0 win.

'We are lucky now as for four weeks we have only have a match a week.

"I fully understand the fans of Chelsea and no one has reason to blame that feeling. I have to adapt myself".

He said: "If money is the only thing that decides things, then we will be in the bottom three - but we were not in the bottom three last season". Three goals and a clean sheet.

"It depends on me and the players".

"I don't know, he has always kicked the penalty like this", Sarri shrugged.
