Huddersfield Town 0-3 Chelsea: 5 Talking Points

"We fought hard and they deserve full credit because the mentality was fantastic".

But after Chelsea met the Slovenian's contracted €100m release clause, Oblak chose to reject the London club's last minute advances, in favour of Champions League football with Atletico - and was promptly rewarded with vastly improved terms at his current club.

All three goals came in a frantic opening 20 minutes on Tyneside, with two headed goals for the north London team coming either side of Joselu's equaliser for Rafa Benitez's Newcastle.

"Today with an Italian referee maybe there were 15 fouls more than with this referee."

Only three players are exempt from that - Patrick Reed, who won the Masters, Brooks Koepka, who won the U.S. He'll be playing in a group with the year's other two major champions.

After a frustrating debut against City, Jorginho produced a fine display at the base of Chelsea's midfield.

- Huddersfield have picked up just nine points from their last possible 36 in Premier League home games (W2 D3 L7), with the first game in this run being a 3-1 defeat against Chelsea in this fixture last season.

But while he said he was very happy to take three points, Sarri said that he hopes to get his players more in tune with his ideas before worldwide commitments and the Europa League begin to disrupt Chelsea's schedule.

"In certain moments in the game, we have to improve to defend in the other half, to press especially against three defenders", Sarri said.

Rudiger was impressed, however, and said: "I think he (Kepa) did well".

They are bold words for the new coach of Chelsea, who has seen two of his predecessors, Luiz Felipe Scolari and Andre Villas-Boas, sacked after failing in the Stamford Bridge hot seat after only eight and nine months respectively by an owner in Abramovich not known for his patience.

"We're happy because to be honest our pre-season games were not that good", Rudiger said. We moved the ball well and also to have a good bench is always good.

A strike from World Cup victor N'Golo Kante, Jorginho's penalty on debut and a late goal for Pedro were enough to hand Maurizio Sarri a first win in the Premier League.

DOD releases 4-part plan for Space Force
But nevermind how we're going to pay for this sixth USA military branch, or that the Air Force already covers celestial missions. Only Congress has the authority to establish a new branch of the military-something that hasn't happened since the U.S.

"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".
