Chelsea 'have to improve' to achieve Premier League success - Maurizio Sarri

Chelsea Confirmed Lineup vs Huddersfield: Kepa, Jorginho make Premier League debut

The Belgium worldwide has only recently reported back to Chelsea FC after his involvement in the World Cup with his national team.

The Blues lost their former first-choice keeper Thibaut Courtois to Real Madrid last week in a deal that saw Mateo Kovacic arriving at Stamford Bridge on a season-long loan deal.

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.

Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur enjoyed away wins in the opening round of the Premier League season while promoted Fulham and Cardiff City were given quick reminders of the tough task they face on their returns to the top flight.

Maurizio Sarri got his Chelsea reign off to the flawless start today with his side running out 3-0 winners over Huddersfield in their Premier League opener. He could have won more trophies.

We are not a physical team and I think the best of the game is the capacity of suffering for 15 minutes.

Rather than sit back, Sarri wants his new-look Chelsea to play pressing football and win the ball high up the pitch. "They had five chances and scored three goals", Wagner told reporters. But, it is N'Golo Kante's place in the starting eleven that is surprising, given his late arrival to be a part of the pre-season training.

"It's not always easy to adapt because it's a new style of play, but I think we did well".

But the game turned decisively towards the visitors when Chelsea doubled their advantage just before the interval as Marcos Alonso burst into the area and went down under challenge from Christopher Schindler.

"He jumped before the penalty and Ben (Hamer) had already dived so I don't know why the ref didn't make him retake the penalty".

"We have a good understanding and he is a quality player", the German said. "The ref needs to explain that to us because I don't understand why (it was not retaken)".
