Huddersfield Town 0 Chelsea 3: Disappointing result, not display, claims Wagner

Huddersfield Town 0 Chelsea 3: Disappointing result, not display, claims Wagner

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

"It's true that some players push and it's true that at certain moments Thibaut was getting a bit stressed by the situation because Madrid made an offer and he had an opportunity to go", said Courtois' agent.

Mauricio Sarri said this week that his Chelsea team might not play entirely as he wants until the second half of the season and, against Huddersfield, they certainly were not the whirling, fast-paced team of the new manager's ideals.

Fresh off a World Cup triumph, N'Golo Kante has returned to Chelsea and looks set to function in a more advanced role under Sarri.

"It depends on me and the players. So he has the ability to move the ball very quickly". "The best thing for him was to play 15-20 minutes when the opposition was exhausted".

"The Bale I've met is happy and committed to the club".

For the opening 30 minutes of the match, Chelsea barely troubled the Huddersfield defence and that was largely down to the impressive performance of Terence Kongolo.

Huddersfield boss David Wagner accepted his side were roundly outplayed, highlighting defensive errors as contributing to a heavy home loss. "Then in the second half the opponents were a bit exhausted and it was easier".

"If we wanted to get something today, we had to be at our very best".

"He's going to help us in a lot of ways, not just scoring goals".

Chelsea started the first-half with the same languid approach that had optimised their pre-season, lacking any pace and incisiveness on the turn, instead reverting to an impassive and disjointed accumulation of short five-yard balls and careless clearances.

Pedro applied the finishing touch after Hazard accelerated forward with goal before unselfishly teeing up the Spaniard, who was cool and collected before lifting the ball over the onrushing Hamer, watching it trickle into the corner.

Mounie took exception to Jorginho's cheeky penalty, adding: "It was weird".
