Chelsea's all-round effort ensures Maurizio Sarri makes winning start

Maurizio Sarri anticipates early season 'problems' before Chelsea reach full potential

And while Sarri's daring move paid off in the return of a goal apiece, his side also dominated the midfield easily.

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has warned that it will take time before his new team are able to produce the "Sarri-ball" style of football his former side Napoli side were famed for. A team still adjusting to the demands of Sarrismo, or Sarri-ball as it has already been dubbed within the corridors of Chelsea, confront Huddersfield on Saturday.

His header, which beat all of Chelsea's defenders and their new keeper, unfortunately deflected off of the post and back into play.

They made Chelsea uncomfortable throughout the opening period, and new signing Terence Kongolo impressed at center-back.

Vertonghen and Alli struck either side of Joselu's equaliser for the Magpies with all three goals coming in the first 18 minutes.

"Then we were 2-0 down after I think a good half and I think second half we started very slow, we were shocked". They were not dominant, but kept their theoretically superior opponents from making too many threatening attacks, happy for Chelsea to pass the ball around in deep positions.

I can't believe she is still carrying her calf around", Ms Giles said. "The other concern is that she might be food-limited". Those samples have been sent for analysis, specifically for harmful bacteria and fungi from the airway.

"Will they make the top four and will that be a success?" The experienced goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois spent the first half of the week absent without leave to force through his move to Real Madrid, with the replacement, Kepa Arrizabalaga, recruited only on Wednesday night. It was fun for the supporters and useful for results.

"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". If you look at the result you can think of an easy game. I was a little bit more offensive than last season. "We really wanted to get something out of this game".

Roared on by the loud home support that had helped them to survival at the end of last season, Huddersfield had plenty of early pressure.

"From the physical point of view, it's different", the Chelsea boss said, comparing the Premier League to Serie A. "That's enough for me to be confident for this Premier League season, if we keep it up".

Scoring goals was a problem for Conte's team a year ago - they scored only 62, the fewest in the top six - and Chelsea netted only three in five warm-up games this summer.

"I think the players have done everything, left everything on the grass".
