After looking aimless for long periods in the first half they were much improved in the second, with more Hazard involvement likely to take them up a gear. He did well with that and we as defenders we needed to help him and we did that.

"I think that Eden in this moment can not play for 90 minutes, he needs to have training", Sarri said of the Belgium star. We have to move the ball faster.

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.

"Then we were 2-0 down after I think a good half and I think second half we started very slow, we were shocked". The first half was hard.

FW Alvaro Morata, 7 - Led the line enthusiastically, held up the ball well when in possession and looked confident enough to suggest the goals that have been missing from his game will come soon enough if Sarri persists with him.

Laurent Depoitre had Town's best chance in the second half but he shot wildly over after being teed up by Florent Hadergjonaj.

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

For starters, it seems a little odd that Fuqua is involved in this conversation, or that he discussed it at his new app's launch event.

"We were in trouble for 15 minutes against a physical team, we are not a physical team".

An away win, featuring three goals and a clean sheet, are reasons to be cheerful, but add to that an all-round team performance from a group who have rediscovered the joy of being able to play an enterprising brand of football.

And when the crosses did come in, Morata could not get himself on the end of them, being crowded out well by the Huddersfield defence.

"We're happy because to be honest our pre-season games were not that good", Rudiger said. We made a mistake in our frontline that led to the second goal which can not happen.

"This was a goal that was easily avoidable because we have spoken about this situation the whole week, how we like to defend, and we have seen we have to be switched on".

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.
