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

"I disagree that he can only play as one of three central defenders", said the former Napoli coach. He clearly developed no loyalties to the club during his four-year stint as a Chelsea player.

- Huddersfield have picked up just nine points from their last possible 36 in Premier League home games (W2 D3 L7), with the first game in this run being a 3-1 defeat against Chelsea in this fixture last season.

Sarri is famed for getting the best out of his strikers, but said: "In Naples, we played at great speed, ball forward, ball back, with continuity, with great speed with the strikers". "He tried to speak as much as he can and he did well with that". "When we needed to help him, we helped him".

"Thibaut is such a great goalkeeper and he did his best at Chelsea to bring titles and trophies so it is not a great feeling to lose such a player".

"In his work he's very confident, but off the pitch he's a quiet guy".

Huddersfield had given as good as they got before going behind to N'Golo Kante's scuffed 34th-minute volley.

And the visitors' decisive second just before half-time offered the flawless cameo of the chasm, ability-wise, between these teams.

But Chelsea again punctuated a strong spell for the hosts with a goal, Jorginho sitting debutant Ben Hamer down with a skip in his run-up for an incredibly cool spot-kick after Christopher Schindler caught Marcos Alonso at the end of a neat move from the Blues.

"This is a big turnaround from where they've been in the last couple of years".

"We're happy because to be honest our pre-season games were not that good", he said.

"This means we don't get carried away". We made a mistake in our frontline that led to the second goal which can not happen. Rudiger is adjusting to partnering David Luiz in the heart of defence, and both men were more convincing against Huddersfield than they were against Manchester City in the Community Shield.

Jan Oblak rejected the chance to join Chelsea after the club triggered the £90m release clause in his Atletico Madrid contract, according to a report. We knew it would be hard.

"We conceded the first goal out of nothing, a deflection goal and then we were unlucky when Steve Mounie only hit the inside of the post".
