  • Chelsea transfer news Eden Hazard warning delivered by Ruud Gullit

Italy global Jorginho passed home a fearless penalty in the 45th minute as Maurizio Sarri earned his first competitive win at the helm after his team went down to Manchester City in the Community Shield last weekend, while fellow debutant and the world's most expensive goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga started with a clean sheet.

"I have seen passion, desire, the spirit, which we usually have in our game".

"Thibaut is such a great goalkeeper and he did his best at Chelsea to bring titles and trophies, so it is not a great feeling to lose such a player", he said. "In his work he's very confident".

"We have been working really hard with (Sarri)", he said.

A strike from World Cup victor N'Golo Kante, Jorginho's penalty on debut and a late goal for Pedro were enough to hand Maurizio Sarri a first win in the Premier League.


Real Madrid might raise their offer for Eden Hazard to around £200m (€224m) according to the 'Sunday Express'.

Cardiff City also tasted defeat on their return to the elite - midfielder Ryan Fraser's first-half goal and forward Callum Wilson's late strike securing the three points for Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium. I have to adapt myself to the characteristics of this championship and of (my) players. We have to move the ball faster.

The Blues' new star in the midfield is Jorginho, who came over to Chelsea with Sarri from Napoli.

Huddersfield striker Steve Mounie's header had hit the inside of a post as David Wagner's side responded well to Kante's opener before Pedro drove home the third goal after being set up by second-half substitute Hazard.

More flashes of what Chelsea fans can expect from "Sarri-ball" would have been anticipated and they received a brilliant example when Ross Barkley flicked Jorginho's pass into the run of Alonso, who won the penalty from Schindler. "I hope in this month to improve the team", he said. "The ref needs to explain that to us because I don't understand why (it was not retaken)".
