Maurizio Sarri not aiming to repeat Napoli formula at Chelsea

0:45                                            Wagner insists keeping Christopher Schindler is a big statement from Huddersfield

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.

Jorginho doubled the visitors' advantage from the penalty spot on the stroke of half-time and Pedro wrapped up the points with a smartly-taken goal following a dazzling run by substitute Eden Hazard.

Sarri has backed Alvaro Morata to improve from a largely disappointing first season in English football and also has France World Cup victor Olivier Giroud to call upon, but conceded he would have relished the opportunity to work with Higuain again.

For long spells in the first half, David Wagner's side seemed to have Chelsea more or less where they wanted them.

"We are not a physical team so for 20 minutes we were in trouble but we did very well", Sarri said.

"Then I think in the second half the opponents were a bit exhausted and it was easier".

Next up for Huddersfield is a daunting trip to take on champions Manchester City at the Etihad a week on Sunday, a match you can see live on Sky Sports Premier League.

"Today with an Italian referee maybe there were 15 fouls more than with this referee".

There will be much to work on but also plenty to please Sarri: Three goals, occasional spells of the lightning-fast passing and decision-making that he wants, plus an assured debut for new goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, who dealt with the relatively few challenges he faced with little to no fuss.

Things are looking good for Chelsea if he can maintain this sort of form. It depends on the characteristics of the Premier League and of my players.

"It depends on me and the players".

"I have seen passion, desire, the spirit, which we usually have in our game". I felt the energy in the stadium and we were unlucky in the first half.

"The second goal we conceded shortly before half-time is a goal which we should never concede". On this evidence, he will have to do so again if they are to repeat last season's heroics.

"We started very well, on the front foot, and then the first goal came out of nothing".

Forming part of a three-man central defence which switched to five when Chelsea were attacking, Kongolo helped keep Alvaro Morata, Pedro and Willian quiet.

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.
