Sarri not aiming to repeat Napoli formula at Chelsea

Sarri not aiming to repeat Napoli formula at Chelsea

"The best capacity was to suffer, but then I think the second half maybe they were exhausted".

He created Chelsea's third goal for Pedro just minutes after coming on and whilst Huddersfield were already a beaten side by that point, he ran riot and was at his sizzling best gliding past players.

Julen Lopetegui's side are in need of more top players who can help them retain the Champions League title and win more silverware, after the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus.

The Blues were the sole aggressors in the second half and, after Hamer parried a header from Antonio Rudiger behind, Alonso sent an acrobatic effort against the crossbar in the 58th minute.

Chelsea's new manager Maurizio Sarri says he has a month to whip his team into shape and make them familiar with the high-intensity, passing football which was nicknamed "Sarri-ball" during his time at Napoli in Serie A. We hit the bar twice - once when we were 1-0 down after conceding a very unlucky goal from a deflection.

"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", he said.

Sarri saw Chelsea break the world record for a goalkeeper this summer, landing 23-year-old Kepa Arrizabalaga from Bilbao in a £71.8m deal.

"It's never easy to adapt to a new style of play, but I think we did well".

"This is understandable after this good first half and you sit at half-time and you are 2-0 down".

"We are lucky now because for three or four weeks, we can work with only one match a week. Hopefully two months and not three". "Then in the second half the opponents were a bit exhausted and it was easier".

Sarri also said he will continue to be cautious with Hazard, who looked a long way short of full fitness. "That's enough for me to be confident for this Premier League season, if we keep it up".

Huddersfield enjoyed more possession toward the half-hour mark as Steve Mounie's rising effort cleared the crossbar and a series of crosses from Huddersfield left-back Chris Lowe tested Chelsea's defence. "Maybe with an Italian referee, maybe 15 more fouls [would be given in this game] than with this referee".
