Maurizio Sarri anticipates early season 'problems' before Chelsea reach full potential

"It's true that some players push and it's true that at certain moments Thibaut was getting a bit stressed by the situation because Madrid made an offer and he had an opportunity to go", said Courtois' agent. That is not a surprise, perhaps, but it doesn't bode well for his chances of much playing time with Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Cesc Fabregas and Mateo Kovacic to come in.

N'Golo Kante got Chelsea up and running, with a cool Jorginho penalty doubling their lead before Eden Hazard came off the bench to tee up Pedro for the third.

Maurizio Sarri will be delighted to have kept hold of his main man during the transfer window and this performance will give all Chelsea fans encouragement for the rest of the season.

"We have a quite good understanding", Rudiger added when asked about Luiz. On Monday four players from the World Cup arrived. We have to improve in this month, then it might be hard with the national teams. "The first half was hard - maybe if you look at the result you can think about an easy game, but in the first half we were in trouble for 15 minutes against a very physical team". Executed by Hazard, finished by Pedro.

AC Milan closing in on Bakayoko Loan deal
New Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has reportedly declared France worldwide Tiémoué Bakayoko surplus to requirement this season. CHELSEA star Willian has spoken about Barcelona's attempts to sign him after insisting he is happy to remain at the club.

After Antonio Rudiger won an aerial battle inside his own half, Jorginho's neat touch played in Pedro who pushed forward before passing to Willian. They were not dominant, but kept their theoretically superior opponents from making too many threatening attacks, happy for Chelsea to pass the ball around in deep positions.

Chelsea star Willian has revealed that former boss Jose Mourinho and Manchester United never made a bid for his services and it was only La Liga champs Barcelona, who had made an attempt to sign him.

.

The striker needs a goal to get his confidence up or both he and Chelsea may suffer. Staying away from arguments over tactics would definitely help in that regard, though.

The big problem last season was a lack of goals, however, and there was little here to suggest they won't struggle in that department again.
