Maurizio Sarri began his Chelsea tenure with a 2-0 win (no, the Charity Shield doesn't count) against Huddersfield on Saturday, but the Blues weren't entirely convincing, particularly in a first half when the Terriers pegged them back for long stretches.
Things are looking good for Chelsea if he can maintain this sort of form.
"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".
"We are lucky now because we can work with one match a week".
When a team plays well but loses, it is sometimes hard to figure out if they have been wasteful or unlucky. "I hope to be at the top of the potential of the squad in one or two months but I don't know". He did not want a new defender to help with a switch to a back four from the three-man alignment preferred by Antonio Conten and neither was he keen on another striker, despite the struggles last season of Alvaro Morata. "Then in the second half the opponents were a bit exhausted and it was easier".
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.
"I am really very happy because in the first part of the season I think that for us it is not easy to gain points", the Chelsea boss said. The experienced goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois spent the first half of the week absent without leave to force through his move to Real Madrid, with the replacement, Kepa Arrizabalaga, recruited only on Wednesday night.
"We are not a physical team and I think the best of the game is the capacity to suffer for 15 minutes". So it was a bit unlucky.
"Chelsea were very clinical".
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. We made too many mistakes and you have to be clinical and use your chances. So I think it's not a problem.

Jorginho's penalty raised eyebrows and delighted neutrals, the former Napoli midfielder deceiving goalkeeper Ben Hamer with a skip in his run-up before rolling the ball home.
When asked how long it could take for his players to be at their best, Sarri surprised many with his response. Jorginho will clearly be the key, the expert at quickly shifting the ball that Sarri knows well from Napoli.
Pogba who joined the Manchester United setup just four days before the match, never looked like he missed pre-season friendlies. The Englishman had a fine game in the Premier League's first match of the season and played his part in the 2-1 win.
