Sarri not aiming to repeat Napoli formula at Chelsea

The World Cup victor started his first game under the tutelage of Maurizio Sarri against Huddersfield and proved to be the most unlikely goalscorer when he found the net 34 minutes into the trip to the John Smith Stadium with a bouncing side-foot volley with his weaker left peg.
World Cup victor Kante's scruffy 34th-minute volley and Jorginho's audacious penalty on the stroke of half-time put Chelsea in control before Pedro wrapped up the points in the closing stages.
"This is understandable after this good first half and you sit at half-time and you are 2-0 down".
Chelsea midfielder N'golo Kante celebrates with his team-mates after scoring his team's first goal against Huddersfield Town.
Once Kovacic is up to speed with Chelsea and their new system, the Croatian is expected to occupy that third role in midfield alongside Kante and Jorginho, as a fitting replacement for Marek Hamsik whom Sarri had at Napoli.
"In the first half we started on the front foot, where we really wanted to be active", he said. Jorginho with a slow, nonchalant run-up, strokes the ball down the middle and Hamer doesn't get close to it. Subs: Loftus-Cheek 6, Moses 5, Hazard 7.
The Frenchman opened the scoring for the Blues, as mentioned earlier, and found himself in several threatening positions throughout the match.
DF Antonio Rudiger, 7 - Chelsea need a reliable rock at centre-back and Rudiger looked every inch the type of player who won't go missing when most needed.
As for Jorginho's spot-kick, he was made to look silly.
Sarri's half-time talk proves effective: There was some cause for concern after Chelsea's first-half performance. In the opener, the Blues cruised to a 3-0 win at Huddersfield, earning a convincing three points after the team failed to impress during the preseason.
The former Madrid man did well to hold the ball up and knock aerial passes down, yet his first touch let him down at times and he gave the ball away on a few occasions with wayward passing.
With the victory, Chelsea top the English Premier League with superior goals difference and they host Arsenal in their next meeting. The team has to head to Manchester City next week.
