N'Golo Kante, Jorginho impress in new-look midfield as Chelsea cruise

"In training he has tried to explain to me how we play, but I will understand more in a few weeks with more sessions and games", said the Frenchman, who lined up alongside Jorginho for the first time in Tuesday's goalless friendly with Lyon.

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri admits he "regrets" missing out on the signing of Gonzalo Higuain. Jorginho will clearly be the key, the expert at quickly shifting the ball that Sarri knows well from Napoli.

Huddersfield have spent about £40m on players this summer - breaking their transfer record by paying £16m to make defender Terence Kongolo's loan move from Monaco permanent - and received another boost yesterday as centre-back Christopher Schindler signed a new contract through until 2021.

Willian (Chelsea): Produced a driving performance, creating the first goal with his explosive pace and trickery. They were very clinical.

58' - CROSSBAR! Chelsea go close from a corner once more.

Also, Jorginho only misplaced four of his 66 attempted passes, recording an accuracy of 93.9% - the best of any player to start the match. After looking aimless for long periods in the first half they were much improved in the second, with more Hazard involvement likely to take them up a gear.

"Not at the moment for sure, but he is very young, 23 I think".

If you see the result, you think it was a very easy match, but in the first half it was very hard against physical opponents. Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri insists that he is not looking to replicate his Napoli style at Stamford Bridge.

"At Napoli we played at great speed, moving the ball forward and back with continuity". So it was fun for the supporters.

Mauricio Sarri said this week that his Chelsea team might not play entirely as he wants until the second half of the season and, against Huddersfield, they certainly were not the whirling, fast-paced team of the new manager's ideals. "That's enough for me to be confident for this Premier League season, if we keep it up".

"I have to respect the characteristics of the players, I have to adapt myself to the characteristics of the championship and of the players, so now I am studying my players".

"It depends on me and the players".

"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". In the first line, we defended not like we wanted to defend.

The Terriers, meanwhile, were probably buoyed by the fact that their survival last season was helped by the point they gained against the Blues in their penultimate game of the campaign.
