Wagner celebrates Huddersfield securing their Premier League survival last season

New Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri got off to a winning start.

Sarri's Chelsea beat Huddersfield 3-0 on Saturday in the Italian's first taste of Premier League football.

Further, talking about his future now that former boss Conte has left the club, the Brazilian global added, "I have my head here and I intend to continue in the club unless the club wants to sell me. I have to adapt myself". We have to improve in this month, then it might be hard with the national teams. "I hope to be at the top of the potential of the squad in one or two months but I don't know". We have to move the ball faster.

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.

A strike from World Cup victor N'Golo Kante, Jorginho's penalty on debut and a late goal for Pedro were enough to hand Maurizio Sarri a first win in the Premier League. "The best thing for him was to play 15-20 minutes when the opposition was exhausted". "The first half was hard - maybe if you look at the result you can think about an easy game, but in the first half we were in trouble for 15 minutes against a very physical team".

Eyes were obviously on debutants Jorginho and Arrizabalaga and the pair gave excellent accounts of themselves, with the former scoring a cheeky penalty in the first half.

"We lost one of the most important goalkeepers in the world but we bought a good, young keeper, I think one of the most important among young goalkeepers in Europe, so I'm really happy".

Kepa, signed from Atheltic Bilbao for £72.1million on Thursday, had little to do for the opening 20 minutes as Chelsea hogged the ball, but made a hash of an early touch when he passed straight to Town midfielder Aaron Mooy.

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

Huddersfield boss David Wagner felt his side "tried everything" in their 3-0 defeat at home to Chelsea, but accepts the result was deserved.

"Chelsea were very clinical".

It took us a while to get going, but once we did, Huddersfield didn't stand a chance.

"I think he has the characteristics for us", he said.

Vertonghen and Alli struck either side of Joselu's equaliser for the Magpies with all three goals coming in the first 18 minutes.

"The second goal we conceded shortly before half-time is a goal which we should never concede". The Spaniard delicately chipped the ball over the goalkeeper and into the back of the net.
