Chris Brunskill / Fantasista / Getty Images Chelsea's 2018-19 Premier League campaign had a winning start under new manager Maurizio Sarri thanks to a 3-0 win over Huddersfield Town on Saturday. Goals from the star of N & # 39; Golo Kante, Pedro and the summer who signed Jorginho, who hit from the penalty spot, gave the Blues all three points to John Smith's Stadium. & # 39; Sarri-ball & # 39; it will take Hold faster than expected
Sarri said it will take "a month or two" for Chelsea to reach its full potential by playing its distinctive football brand, according to Matt Law of The Telegraph. The Italian request seems a prudent estimate based on the safe and secure way in which its players have passed the ball between the rows on Saturday. Chelsea has regained possession with effortless efficiency thanks to players naturally suited to the so-called "Sarri-ball". Sure, there were some initial problems: Dan Levene @danleveneChelsea with a lot of possession. What they need are the possibilities. Because, as we all know: possession minus the odds equals Arsenal.Liam Twomey @ liam_twomeySarri is already making a sign to Chelsea to move the ball faster. I suspect it will be a recurring theme in the next few weeks #cfcThings improved when Kante found the net in 34 minutes. The rather poor ending influenced the kind of free-flowing move that was a trademark of Sarri's Napoli team: Nizaar Kinsella @ NizaarKinsella34 min: Pedro's great job to drive in defense, Willian's beautiful cross and Kante goes to the ground passing Hamer #CFC #HUDCHEWhat followed was greater security and more talent than the masters of the Blues. Both were evident in the accumulation of the penalty of Jorginho: Nizaar Kinsella @ NizaarKinsella45: 2-0 The first time Sarriball really made a change, the good football Pedro, Jorginho and especially Barkley brought the ball to Alonso. The cry of the pen seems hard to me. Schindler on Alonso. Jorginho takes the penalty and scores. #CFC #HUDCHEEven a superficial look at the names of the players involved shows why Chelsea will not have to wait long before Sarri-ball becomes the norm. Pedro is already well educated in skillful possession from his days working with Pep Guardiola in Barcelona, while Willian plays with the elegant impudence inherent in many of Brazil's best strikers. The technique and intuition can not be scarce at the central level until the former Evertonprodigy Ross Barkley and Sarri, the young student of Naples, Jorginho, are pulling the strings. This last is known to treat the ball like a treasure and will surely become the focus of this Chelsea team. Sari may not correspond to the rapid success of his predecessor Antonio Conte, who won the title in his first season. However, it will not take much of the new man to get the Blues playing the game the way he believes it should be played. Sarri's influence can unlock Kante's scoring potential The influence of Sarri will alter Chelsea's collective game for the better, but individual players will also benefit from the 59-year-old progressive ideas. Perhaps no player will benefit more than the brave midfielder Kante, who can become more of a forward factor. The potential goal of the best destroyer in the English top flight was shown 11 minutes before the interval when Kante found the net for a rare time: Squawka Football @ SquawkaN & # 39; Golo Kanté scored in each of his four seasons of Premier League:
2015/16: 37 games, 1 goal
2016/17: 35 games, 1 goal
2017/18: 34 games, 1 goal
2018/19: 1 match, 1 goal
He has already equaled his best finish in just one season. 😉 https://t.co/WPvreV8vjWLiam Twomey from ESPN FC has perfectly summarized why this milestone can be the first of many: Liam Twomey @liam_twomey Could be the first of some for N & # 39; GOALo Kante if he continues to enter those positions #cfcForward launches are usually a rarity for the former ace of Leicester City, but did their fair share against the Terriers. Many of those raids in the last third brought Kante over to the center forward Morata, regularly putting Kante in position to threaten in goal. His energy, rhythm and technique mean that Kante can be a useful option in the attack zones for a more expansive side of Chelsea. Lack of Goals Definitely to Doom Huddersfield Although the final score indicated the opposite, Huddersfield defended himself well for much of the game. In particular, a summer purchase was distinguished, according to Nizaar Kinsella of Goal: Nizaar Kinsella @NizaarKinsellaTerence Kongolo is at some distance MOTM, so far. #HUDCHE #CFCYet for all the praiseworthy efforts of Terence Kongolo, he and the rest of the Terrier defense were not helped by a terribly short attack from the scoring potential. Steve Mounie was in the lead, but the Frenchman, who found the net only seven times in 28 league appearances last season, has barely troubled Chelsea debutant goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga. Neither the offensive midfielder Alex Pritchard, who played outside the only striker but could not summon any magic. Apart from the lack of creativity, there was also a noticeable lack of pace in vast areas, making a mockery of the decision to sell Tom Ince to Stoke City. Attempts to find the net already seem to be the common theme of the Huddersfield season, a familiar one fake enough damaged to ruin the club in a relegation battle. What's Next? Chelsea and Sarri can expect a stronger test from Arsenal in the home match at Stamford Bridge next Saturday. Meanwhile, things will not be easier for Terriers, who travel to face the Manchester City champions on Sunday, August 19th. .
