Chelsea 'have to improve' to achieve Premier League success - Maurizio Sarri

FW Pedro, 8 - Linked up well with Azpilicueta in forward passages of play and was the main beneficiary when Hazard came on as he latched onto a pass from the Belgian worldwide to smartly score the final goal. I felt the energy in the stadium and we were unlucky in the first half. "We did it better in the second half, there was more space and time".

While today's result will be sure to relieve any original doubts over this new look Chelsea side, Sarri was keen to play down the flattering score line.

New Customers can get Chelsea at an enhanced 30/1 to beat Huddersfield.

Huddersfield 1-2 Chelsea: It's a fresh start for Chelsea and it will be interesting to see how Sarri does in the Premier League. So we lost maybe one of the most important goalkeepers in the world now.

Bournemouth won a Premier League opener for the first time in four tries with a 2-0 victory at newly promoted Cardiff City.

U.S. media criticizes Trump's tariffs decision on Turkey
Erdogan appealed to a crowd in the city of Bayburt to exchange dollars and gold for Turkish lira to prop up the plunging currency. But Turkey is not manipulating its currency; the lira is falling because the country is suffering from an economic crisis.

And that was when Chelsea grew into the game, with the Italian getting a feel of the opposition and exposing their weaknesses with the same quick short passes which he did so well at Napoli. Then, on the stroke of half-time, Marcos Alonso was hauled down inside the box and Jorginho made no mistake from twelve yards out.

As Jorginho approaches the ball, he skips just before the taking his shot.

Playing the key anchor role, Jorginho boasted the highest passing success rate on the whole pitch (93.9%), while also making the most clearances (five).

This would have been one for Huddersfield, but it is still early.

The FA Cup winners and last season's defending champions headed into their first game of the season with some uncertainty given the changes which took place in the summer.

Indonesia quake death toll close to 400
The region has been hit by more than 350 aftershocks, the worst of which struck yesterday. People in Bali , an island 93 miles from Lombok, also reported feeling the quake.

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. "In Naples we played at great speed: ball forward, ball back, with continuity, with great speed with the strikers".

For the opening 30 minutes of the match, Chelsea barely troubled the Huddersfield defence and that was largely down to the impressive performance of Terence Kongolo. Elsewhere, the likes of Eden Hazard, N'Golo Kante, Olivier Giroud, Michy Batshuayi, Gary Cahill and Rube Loftus-Cheek are unlikely to be rushed back into action, having only returned to training this week, after their extended vacations post the summer's World Cup.

But the 17-year-old was left out of the matchday squad altogether, with Pedro and Willian starting out wide and Hazard and Victor Moses the options from the bench.

"I don't want to do another Napoli, I want to do a Chelsea", Sarri told a news conference.
