Chelsea Confirmed Lineup vs Huddersfield: Kepa, Jorginho make Premier League debut

0:48                                            David Wagner insists the recent Little Mix is not to blame for the condition of Huddersfield's pitch

Jorginho also starts in midfield in what will be his first game in the Premier League.

New boss Maurizio Sarri has seemingly been unable to convince the Belgian that his future lies with Chelsea, with the latest updates indicating Musonda is still angling for an imminent departure. A team still adjusting to the demands of Sarrismo, or Sarri-ball as it has already been dubbed within the corridors of Chelsea, confront Huddersfield on Saturday.

"Then in the best period which we had in the second half after 20-25 minutes where we hit the bar again, where we were unlucky, we conceded the third one and then at the end it was a deserved win for Chelsea".

While today's result will be sure to relieve any original doubts over this new look Chelsea side, Sarri was keen to play down the flattering score line.

Vertonghen and Alli struck either side of Joselu's equaliser for the Magpies with all three goals coming in the first 18 minutes.

However, the disappointing box office of Star Trek Beyond appeared to slow down progress on the sequel. Now a couple of other Star Trek stars, new and old, are having a little fun with the matter.

Most of Chelsea's players played really well, with David Luiz especially impressive as he controlled the air and fed some good alls up front.

After spending more than $380 million on new players since gaining promotion, the newcomers only collected one point between them.

58' - CROSSBAR! Chelsea go close from a corner once more.

But manager Mauricio Pochettino has insisted he is happy just to have retained a host of players who excelled at the World Cup and it was two of them who handed Spurs all three points at Newcastle.

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.

What Tiger Woods said after third-round 66 at PGA Championship
Midway through the afternoon round, the cut was projected to be even par. Woodland is among the most powerful players in golf. It has not been a stellar 2018 for Jordan Spieth .

"At Napoli we played at great speed, moving the ball forward and back with continuity".

Sarri's half-time talk proves effective: There was some cause for concern after Chelsea's first-half performance. "The best capacity was to suffer, but then I think the second half maybe they were exhausted".

"I am used to being under pressure". It was fun for the supporters and useful for results. "But I have to adapt myself on the characteristics of the players, and not vice versa". In 23 of the last 25 Serie A [seasons], the 91 points we had a year ago would have been enough to win it. But yes, it could be more attacking for me.

Scoring goals was a problem for Conte's team previous year - they scored only 62, the fewest in the top six - and Chelsea netted only three in five warm-up games this summer.
