Jose Mourinho has endured a tough pre-season with Manchester United

GETTY Jose Mourinho has endured a tough pre-season with Manchester United

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

Fans will just have to hope the likes of Manchester United and Liverpool don't work them out as Maurizio Sarri sculpts his attacking brand of football.

"It's never easy to adapt to a new style of play, but I think we did well".

"I feel very proud".

Kepa was thrust straight into the startling line-up on Saturday at Huddersfield and Press Association Sport's Simon Peach looked at how he got on in Chelsea's 3-0 win.

N'Golo Kante opened the scoring after neat work from Pedro and the World Cup victor may score more goals this season as Jorginho's role gives him license to drive forward for the Blues. "We moved the ball well and to have a good bench is always good".

Huddersfield, employing a three-man backline, had impressed in the first half and could have cancelled out Kante's opener but Steve Mounie headed against the inside of the post. "I thought yesterday the best thing for him was to play 15 or 20 minutes when the opposition were probably exhausted".

"We have great competition for places and that's beneficial for the team".

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

"We are not a physical team and I think the best of the game is the capacity to suffer for 15 minutes". That's good for us. "The ref needs to explain that to us because I don't understand why (it was not retaken)".

"We had the chance for the equaliser, but we hit the underside of the bar and this is what happens". "I have seen passion, desire, the spirit we usually have in our game".

- Chelsea midfielder Jorginho has scored 90 per cent of the penalties he has taken in the top five European leagues (all competitions), converting 10 of his 11 spot kicks across three different clubs (Verona, Napoli and Chelsea).

Jorginho is the leader in this system that he knows better than any of his team-mates following his time playing under Sarri at Napoli.
