Sarri not aiming to repeat Napoli formula at Chelsea

Napoli won many admirers last season for their progressive possession-based approach, with many viewing the Serie A side as the best team to watch in any of Europe's top leagues.

Chelsea opened their Premier League campaign with victory against Huddersfield, while Tottenham, Bournemouth, Crystal Palace and Watford also made winning starts.

Further, talking about his future now that former boss Conte has left the club, the Brazilian worldwide added, "I have my head here and I intend to continue in the club unless the club wants to sell me". I have to adapt myself on the characteristics of the players, and not vice versa.

"We are lucky now because we can work with one match a week".

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. We have to move the ball faster. The first, from Alex Pritchard, was straight down Kepa's throat and the second - a header by Philip Billing - was comfortably tipped over with no nonsense.

Kante, back on duty just 27 days after starting France's win over Croatia in the World Cup final, scored the opener, thumping a volley into the ground and past goalkeeper Ben Hamer from a Willian cross.

"My job is on the pitch, to improve my players", said Sarri. "The best thing for him was to play 15-20 minutes when the opposition was exhausted".

Eyes were obviously on debutants Jorginho and Arrizabalaga and the pair gave excellent accounts of themselves, with the former scoring a cheeky penalty in the first half.

"We are not a physical team and I think the best of the game is the capacity of suffering for 15 minutes". So it was a bit unlucky.

Huddersfield boss David Wagner accepted his side were roundly outplayed, highlighting defensive errors as contributing to a heavy home loss.

"Chelsea were very clinical".

After an opening half hour in which Chelsea had more of the ball but were kept at arm's length by a smartly-drilled Huddersfield side, the visitors took the lead with a whiff of fortune.

"It was Chelsea's first chance more or less out of nothing and then we conceded the penalty, where we clearly made a big mistake". "We kept them away from our goal and as I said they scored out of nothing".

Jorginho, whose passing was near-faultless throughout, feinted during his run-up before rolling the ball in, leaving the goalkeeper flatfooted.
