Sarri's 'Spanish' Chelsea get off to ideal start

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 also travelled to Australia and back as they played a pre-season game in Perth, soon after Sarri arrived to train his squad.

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri insists that he is not looking to replicate his Napoli style at Stamford Bridge.

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

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.

"I think that Eden in this moment can not play for 90 minutes".

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.

"We have been working really hard with (Sarri)", he said.




Sarri's half-time talk proves effective: There was some cause for concern after Chelsea's first-half performance. "We have to improve in moving the ball faster, I think".

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.

"From the physical point of view, it is different", he said.

"I have huge respect for Sarri, but he was the only one who wanted me at Chelsea", Higuain said at his Milan unveiling. We made the [points] record of the club in the first, in the second, in the third year.

Even as Chelsea grew in the game and took the lead, Morata looked slightly lost in the attacking line as Willian and Pedro opted to cut in from their wide positions. Last season I saw him [David Wagner] face to face and told him his team were great.

Before the second goal, the Terriers had hit a post through Steve Mounie's header, but it was to be Sarri's and Chelsea's day.

"This was a goal that was easily avoidable because we have spoken about this situation the whole week, how we like to defend, and we have seen we have to be switched on".
