Sarri's Chelsea too good for Huddersfield

Merson thinks Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez can keep out Spurs

Chelsea's Premier League era under Maurizio Sarri is off to a superb start.

N'Golo Kante's first goal in 11 months may have been scruffily executed but it was born out of delightful combination work between Willian and Pedro.

The appearance of Hazard came amid continuing uncertainty over the Belgian star's future.

Three days after Chelsea paid the €80 million (£71.5m) buyout clause in his Athletic Bilbao contract to replace the Real Madrid-bound Thibaut Courtois, Kepa enjoyed a relatively quiet afternoon at the John Smith's Stadium.

Pedro sealed a comfortable win with a cool, chipped finish for Chelsea's third after being played in by substitute Eden Hazard.

"I think that Eden in this moment can not play for 90 minutes, he needs to have training", Sarri said of the Belgium star. He has to improve, to have training. So we were not ready for this situation and it was a problem and this team did not have the experience against this.

"He is good isn't he?" laughed Wagner.

Jacobs said the airline is ready to continue negotiations and called on the union to remove the threat of strikes. The Irish airline, which a year ago carried its one billionth passenger, is Europe's biggest low-priced carrier.

9 - With the exception of handing Kepa Arrizabalaga a debut in goal, Sarri played it safe with his first league line-up by opting for experienced heads to do his high-press bidding.

Furthermore, the early signs in pre-season which suggested that Chelsea might need more testing and trying before they finally play together as a unit was eventually banished when the side came out in the second half with further panache to add to their first half exploits. "We helped each other in the game". The absence of a lethal finisher is another reason why many feel that the Blues do not have what it takes to launch challenges for the major trophies on offer this term.

"He jumped before the penalty and Ben (Hamer) had already dived so I don't know why the ref didn't make him retake the penalty".

"I don't want to do another Naples".

"I don't want to do another Napoli, I want to do a Chelsea", Sarri told a news conference. But I think we did have a lot of unlucky situations. "Now I study my players". Alvaro Morata failed to live up to expectations last season while Olivier Giroud is not a striker that can be expected to score an abundance of goals.

"It's a move he wanted because of his family and because also he had the opportunity to go back to Madrid - a city he loves - and to such a big club in Real Madrid", Henrotay said. We made too many mistakes and missed our chances.
