Maurizio Sarri believes he will need time to transform Chelsea

The good news is that Sarri is teaching well, says captain Cesar Azpilicueta.

But Real's power-brokers are desperate for Hazard to replace superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, who left for Juventus last month.

Hazard only returned to training recently after his run to the World Cup semifinals, and Sarri, sensing he was not in shape for 90 minutes, started him on the bench.

Sarri's half-time talk proves effective: There was some cause for concern after Chelsea's first-half performance.

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri gave a debut to the world's most expensive goalkeeper, Kepa Arrizabalaga, while another summer signing, Jorginho, scored a penalty in the 3-0 away win, with Pedro and N'Golo Kante also on target. The best is yet to come from this side - and we can't wait to see what lies ahead.

The book also says that there are tapes of Trump saying these slurs, but was never able to get a hold of them. The White House responded by slamming the book and its author and chastising the press for writing about it.

"I have to respect the characteristics of the players, I have to adapt myself to the characteristics of the championship and of the players, so now I am studying my players". "Then in the second half the opponents were a bit exhausted and it was easier".

WORST PLAYER - Overall, Chelsea played a good game and no one was exactly frightful, but Alvaro Morata did little to improve his prospects. I think the best of the game was the capacity was to suffer for 15 minutes. The players in this moment need to think what to do too much, and so the ball is not moved at the right speed, material and mental, at this moment.

The head coach continues to have two or three English lessons each week, despite his command of the language being impressive, and will move into his house at the end of the month.

'We are lucky now because we can work with one match a week. "I expect, in the first part of the season, some problems". He had a couple of routine saves to make, gathering a dipping long-range shot from Alex Pritchard in the first half, and falling on a tame header from substitute Laurent Depoitre in the second. We have to improve in this month, then it might be hard with the national teams.

Steve Mounie was agonisingly denied by the crossbar as Huddersfield created their fair share of opportunities in the first-half, but the Terriers lacked quality and a bit of fortune in the final third.
