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

There were questions over whether Huddersfield could keep things rolling after their achievement last season and they really didn't play badly, especially in the first half.

Pushed to explain just what he meant by problems, Sarri interrupted.

The FA Cup winners and last season's defending champions headed into their first game of the season with some uncertainty given the changes which took place in the summer. It may not have been the usual tubthumping rallying cry on the eve of a managerial debut, but it was still refreshing to hear. After a choppy opening half hour, N'Golo Kante made the breakthrough and, from that point on, there was only going to be one outcome.

Sarri has quite a task on his hands getting this Chelsea squad up to speed and there were concerns heading into the match.

Chelsea keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, signed on Thursday in a record transfer ahead of the deadline, was rarely challenged and did not make his first save until the 20th minute.

He said: "The game was more hard than the result".

In an interview with ESPN recently, the player stated, "The only club I knew that really made an official offer for me was Barcelona".

Hazard only returned to training recently after his run to the World Cup semifinals, and Sarri, sensing he was not in shape for 90 minutes, started him on the bench.

Eden Hazard looks as if he is back with a bang this season.

New signings Mateo Kovacic and Kepa are both likely to feature for the Blues after completing moves from Real Madrid and Athletic Bilbao respectively. "But, for the moment, he's not Courtois".

Gone are the trademark wing-backs and three centre-half formation that was Conte's stock-in-trade for the past two seasons - one of them of course a championship-winning campaign - and in is...

"[I will change pre-season] completely, I think". It is not a problem, I have spoken with his three or four times. I accept it, but, for the future, it will be better to change it.

"But I think that my ideal programme of pre-season is not completely in line with the programme of the club". Players are readjusting in terms of their positions, with centre-halves restored to a back four and Kanté, a World Cup victor, now flanking a creative midfield anchor and charged with a more attacking brief.

Chelsea are set to be without Cesc Fabregas as he's been left at Cobham to continue building on his fitness so Ross Barkley could get a start in midfield alongside new signing Jorginho. But yes, it could be more attacking for me. But that is something I used to play at my old club, Caen. We hit the bar twice - once when we were 1-0 down after conceding a very unlucky goal from a deflection. There was promise in that glimpse of a partnership.

Both teams pressed for a large portion of the first half, and Sarri said those are the types of situations the team will need to work on. "I think if we play Chelsea at home most people would expect us to concede a defeat, which we've got, and at the end it was a deserved defeat".
