‘Very confident’ - Chelsea defender impressed with Kepa

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

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri made a winning start to life in the Premier League as his team enjoyed a 3-0 win over Huddersfield Town at the John Smith's Stadium on Saturday. "But, for the moment, he's not Courtois, of course", Sarri told a pre-match press conference. However, if he wishes to go, it might be hard to find a way that they can keep hold of him, though they will be in trouble as the transfer window in England is already shut and will not be able to sign a replacement. "Hopefully two months and not three". "I think if we play Chelsea at home most people would expect us to concede a defeat, which we've got, and at the end it was a deserved defeat".

Julen Lopetegui's side are in need of more top players who can help them retain the Champions League title and win more silverware, after the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus.

Kepa had just one save to make in the game but was quick off his line to snuff out danger, and also showcased his aerial ability to claim high balls pumped into the penalty area during the 3-0 win.

It came in the 34th minute when N'Golo Kante's mis-hit strike from Willian's cross bounced past Huddersfield goalkeeper Ben Hamer. "The best thing for him was to play 15-20 minutes when the opposition was exhausted".

Pogba feels like United leader regardless of captaincy
Manchester United , though, ended the campaign without any silverware to heap pressure on Mourinho and his players. De Gea made a huge stop in the first half on James Maddison , denying the young player in the box with this save.

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.

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

"We have great competition for places and that's beneficial for the team". Unfortunately for Huddersfield and their manager David Wagner, Hazard was at his brilliant best. They were very clinical. "The ref needs to explain that to us because I don't understand why (it was not retaken)".

"We have a quite good understanding", Rudiger added when asked about Luiz.

Back in May he appeared on TMZ's show and infamously said: 'You were there for 400 years and it's all of y'all. Kanye West has shocked us again - and this time it has nothing to do with President Trump.

"We're going to change his position on the pitch, this hasn't happened fully yet but he's been training very well". "I have seen passion, desire, the spirit we usually have in our game".

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

"I don't know, he has always kicked the penalty like this", Sarri shrugged.
