Chelsea Confirmed Lineup vs Huddersfield: Kepa, Jorginho make Premier League debut
12 August, 2018, 14:11 | Author: Heidi Alvarez
Maurizio Sarri insists that it will take three months for his Chelsea team reaches their potential under his new management but, in the meantime, N'Golo Kante, Jorginho and Pedro ensured the veteran Italian made an impressive and winning start to Premier League life. He had a couple of routine saves to make, gathering a dipping long-range shot from Alex Pritchard in the first half, and falling on a tame header from substitute Laurent Depoitre in the second.
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. But I think we did have a lot of unlucky situations.
More flashes of what Chelsea fans can expect from "Sarri-ball" would have been anticipated and they received a brilliant example when Ross Barkley flicked Jorginho's pass into the run of Alonso, who won the penalty from Schindler. "I have to respect the characteristics of the players, the championship and now I study my players".
"The second goal we conceded shortly before half-time is a goal which we should never concede".
Two of Chelsea's summer signings - club-record purchase Kepa Arrizabalaga from Athletic Bilbao and Real Madrid loanee Mateo Kovacic - only arrived at Cobham on Wednesday, and Sarri admitted that he will need more time to get his new players up to speed with his ideas.
"In the first half we started on the front foot, where we really wanted to be active", he said.

But they were linked with one - a very good one at that. He did not want a new defender to help with a switch to a back four from the three-man alignment preferred by Antonio Conten and neither was he keen on another striker, despite the struggles last season of Alvaro Morata.
"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".
