Thibaut Courtois apologises to Chelsea for going AWOL

Jose Mourinho has endured a tough pre-season with Manchester United

Chelsea's new manager Maurizio Sarri says he has a month to whip his team into shape and make them familiar with the high-intensity, passing football which was nicknamed "Sarri-ball" during his time at Napoli in Serie A.

"David has a big future here". He is also very important in the dressing room. But I think we did have a lot of unlucky situations. "In his work he's very confident".

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.

With the first global break four weeks away, Sarri says that only now can he really get to work, as World Cup stars such as Eden Hazard, Olivier Giroud and N'Golo Kante returned to training just last week.

They are qualities Hazard possesses in abundance and he came off the bench late on to brilliantly fashion a third goal for Pedro. I saw our spirit, togetherness and good attitude today, which is what we will need to be competitive this season. It does not mean anything if you lose five games in a row, just win the sixth one.

If Kepa adapts to the Premier League, he could go on and become one of the best keepers in the world.

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique confirms global retirement
Even before the World Cup, Pique had hinted that Russian Federation 2018 would be his last major tournament as part of La Roja . The 31-year-old made the last of his 102 global appearances in Spain's World Cup last-16 loss to Russian Federation .

"We had the chance for the equaliser, but we hit the underside of the bar and this is what happens".

Their next game is away to reigning champions Manchester City but defender Florent Hadergjonaj said: "We don't have to be too frustrated".

However, Chelsea would not be able to sign a replacement and Sarri insisted on Friday that it would be "impossible" for Hazard to leave this month. We knew it would be hard.

Huddersfield showed their spirit by continuing to attack and striker Steve Mounie headed against the post after Mathias Jorgensen had flicked on a corner.

Jorginho, N'Golo Kante, and Pedro all scored in Chelsea's 3-0 win at the John Smith's Stadium, with the Blues in a back four and featuring a new midfield of Ross Barkley, Jorginho, and Kante.

But the Terriers were dealt a hammer blow in the 44th when referee Chris Kavanagh awarded the visitors a penalty.
