Sarri not aiming to repeat Napoli formula at Chelsea

Sarri not aiming to repeat Napoli formula at Chelsea

Sarri had said that Chelsea were overthinking their play at times against Manchester City when they were well beaten in the Community Shield last week, but that was the football that Sarri's four weeks in charge have led up to and Jorginho was unsurprisingly involved.

"I have to know the characteristics of the players because I think I don't want to do another Naples", Sarri told reporters at his post-match press conference.

Speaking to BBC Radio 5 live's Sportsweek, Henrotay added: "This was the situation, he apologised and finally everybody is happy".

"I think that Eden in this moment can not play for 90 minutes, he needs to have training", Sarri said of the Belgium star.

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. "We moved the ball well and to have a good bench is always good". "The first half was hard". "The best thing for him was to play 15-20 minutes when the opposition was exhausted".

You'd think that a £50m midfielder playing on his debut would be more careful when taking a penalty.

"We were in trouble for 15 minutes against a physical team, we are not a physical team". I felt the energy in the stadium and we were unlucky in the first half.

"Chelsea were very clinical". The Brazilian was particularly impressive against the Terriers on Saturday and dominated the air as he helped his side keep a clean sheet. I saw our spirit, togetherness and good attitude today, which is what we will need to be competitive this season. We made too many mistakes and missed our chances. We hit the bar twice - once when we were 1-0 down after conceding a very unlucky goal from a deflection.

"We're going to change his position on the pitch, this hasn't happened fully yet but he's been training very well". Unusual, maybe. So now we are not at the top.

Kante's new midfield partner Jorginho, a summer signing from Napoli, also got on the scoresheet.
