Sarri admits £71 million Kepa is not at same level as Courtois

Merson thinks Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez can keep out Spurs

For the third goal, Hazard sliced through Huddersfield's defence down the middle before setting up Pedro, who drove home a low angled shot into the bottom corner.

Kepa, 23, began his Stamford Bridge career with a clean sheet as Sarri's side toppled Huddersfield 3-0.

N'Golo Kante opened the scoring after neat work from Pedro and the World Cup victor may score more goals this season as Jorginho's role gives him license to drive forward for the Blues.

Huddersfield were a persistent threat from crosses into the box and they went close to an equaliser when Steve Mounie headed Mathias Jorgensen's flick-on against the inside of the upright.

Jorginho followed Sarri from Napoli to Chelsea in the summer and the midfielder doubled the Blues' lead when he converted a penalty after Christopher Schindler fouled Marcos Alonso.

Ma'ruf Amin", the president told a news conference Thursday with the chairman and secretary general of the governing coalition. Indonesia, the world's third-largest democracy and biggest Muslim-majority country , goes to the polls in April.

Like several clubs who had players competing at the World Cup, Spurs have had to cope without several key performers during pre-season and Pochettino was delighted with the approach his players had taken.

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has insisted that he is not looking to replicate his Napoli style at the club. However, if he wishes to go, it might be hard to find a way that they can keep hold of him, though they will be in trouble as the transfer window in England is already shut and will not be able to sign a replacement. The Italy global barely misplaced a pass and orchestrated the visitors' approach by keeping himself open and barking out orders. In the first line, we defended not like we wanted to defend.

Where do you think Chelsea will finish this season?

Maurizio Sarri said Chelsea must use the rest of August to improve despite getting the Premier League season off to a flawless start with a 3-0 win over Huddersfield Town.

The result propelled Chelsea to the summit of the league table while it looks like Huddersfield Town will have to fight tooth and nail to survive in the top-flight this year.
