Sarri admits £71 million Kepa is not at same level as Courtois

Chelsea were lacking dynamism and conviction as Huddersfield sat deep and proved hard to break down, but Pedro's driving run and pass out to Willian enabled the Brazilian to pick out Kante, who scuffed a left-footed volley into the ground and inside the far post in the 34th minute.

Mark Lawrenson has delivered a withering verdict on Chelsea FC ahead of the new Premier League season.

Even as Chelsea grew in the game and took the lead, Morata looked slightly lost in the attacking line as Willian and Pedro opted to cut in from their wide positions. Jorginho stepped up and cooly found the back of the net. France's World Cup victor scuffed a volley into the ground and it took a deflection, before looping into the corner.

Huddersfield enjoyed more possession towards the half-hour mark as Steve Mounie's rising effort cleared the crossbar and a series of crosses from Town left-back Chris Lowe tested Chelsea's defence.

"He's going to help us in a lot of ways, not just scoring goals".

Everton want £40m Chelsea flop Tiemoue Bakayoko on loan
Milan can not pay a fee for Bakayoko this summer due to Financial Fair Play restrictions but have proposed a loan deal. Everton are reportedly keen on Chelsea's Tiemoue Bakayoko .

"We went into half-time with two goals and I think we managed the game in the second half".

The visitors were more in control after the break and sealed victory when substitute Eden Hazard did his thing moments after coming on. Executed by Hazard, finished by Pedro.

It was interesting that, when asked about transfers, Sarri only ever mentioned that he might like another midfielder.

"We have to improve to defend in the other half, to press against three defenders".

Midfield is where Sarri's team will be made, so it was interesting to watch how they fared. And it was a great display from the Brazil-born Italian global.

After Antonio Rudiger won an aerial battle inside his own half, Jorginho's neat touch played in Pedro who pushed forward before passing to Willian.

As for Jorginho's spot-kick, he was made to look silly.

"We had a very good first half, but we know that Chelsea, when you face a team like this, they are very clinical", Mounie said.

The striker needs a goal to get his confidence up or both he and Chelsea may suffer.
