The Belgium global completed a €35 million (£31m/$40m) switch to the Santiago Bernabeu late in the Premier League transfer window, forcing those at Stamford Bridge to piece together a record-breaking €80m (£72m/$91m) deal for Kepa Arrizabalaga. He did well with that and we as defenders we needed to help him and we did that. "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".
"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 are lucky now because for three to four weeks we can work with only one match a week, so we have to improve in this month", he said.
Chelsea were lacking dynamism and conviction as Huddersfield sat deep and proved hard to break down, but Pedro's driving run and pass out to Willian enabled the Brazilian to pick out Kante, who scuffed a left-footed volley into the ground and inside the far post in the 34th minute. That's good for us. "We moved the ball well and to have a good bench is always good".
The Terriers were then dealt a major blow just before half-time when Chelsea were awarded a penalty for Christopher Schindler's sliding tackle on Marcos Alonso.
Summer signing Jorginho converted in trademark style from the spot, feinting during his run up to send Huddersfield debutant Ben Hamer the wrong way and stroking the ball into the opposite corner.
Huddersfield, with Socceroos midfielder Mooy playing a full game, struggled to test Kepa in his first outing since joining from Athletic Bilbao for £72 million (A$125.85 million) as Chelsea dominated the second period, with Pedro adding the gloss after a brilliant counter-attack launched by substitute Eden Hazard.
"Everybody, I could see tears in their eyes, and it delighted me very much because I had the feeling to do something not only for a deal, not only for a player, not only for my client, but also for a family, which is great". "We did it better in the second half, there was more space and time".
"It was a little bit weird". We made too many mistakes and missed our chances.
