Chelsea tried to sign Oblak before Kepa

"I think that Eden in this moment can not play for 90 minutes, he needs to have training", Sarri said of the Belgium star. He did well with that and we as defenders we needed to help him and we did that. "We only have to carry on like we are doing now with him".

When Sarri's Napoli team played RB Leipzig in a European tie, the German club set up a specially designed smoking room for him, though this won't be possible during his tenure at Chelsea.

"In the first half we started on the front foot, where we really wanted to be active", he said.

But the game turned decisively towards the visitors when Chelsea doubled their advantage just before the interval as Marcos Alonso burst into the area and went down under challenge from Christopher Schindler.

Chelsea were found wanting in last week's Community Shield defeat to Manchester City, but proved too good for Huddersfield despite leaving World Cup stars Eden Hazard, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Olivier Giroud on the bench.

And then came the moment Jorginho announced himself into English football with a spot-kick blending impudence and imagination. Unfortunately for Huddersfield and their manager David Wagner, Hazard was at his brilliant best.

"This means we don't get carried away".

Nasa delays solar probe launch
The current close-to-the-sun champ, NASA's former Helios 2, got within 27 million miles (43 million kilometers) in 1976. But as the rocket waited on the launchpad, the countdown was frozen twice and the launch delayed for over 45 minutes.

"We have nothing to fear". I'm confident we can be successful. We made a mistake in our frontline that led to the second goal which can not happen.

"He had the contract and it depended on Chelsea, but running close to the end of his contract, Chelsea had an interest to find a deal with Madrid, which they did", he said. We knew it would be hard.

It was Huddersfield's only shot on target in the opening period, but Kepa was relieved to see a Steve Mounie header off the post and eventually get cleared from danger.

Jorginho, N'Golo Kante, and Pedro all scored in Chelsea's 3-0 win at the John Smith's Stadium, with the Blues in a back four and featuring a new midfield of Ross Barkley, Jorginho, and Kante.

Booked: Luiz. Goals: Kante 34, Jorginho 45pen, Pedro 80.

But the Terriers were dealt a hammer blow in the 44th when referee Chris Kavanagh awarded the visitors a penalty.
