Henrotay said the reason why Courtois missed the two days of training was because he was "a bit stressed by the situation" and while he understands the reaction, supporters must respect the decision given the reason.

Well, for Chelsea's sake they would be hoping that their star does not decide to leave him now and can play till the end of his contract.

Attempting to recruit a replacement for Real Madrid-bound Thibaut Courtois ahead of Thursday's deadline, the Premier League club sought to buy Jan Oblak out of his contract at Atletico. "Then I think in the second half the opponents were a bit exhausted and it was easier". In the first line, we defended not like we wanted to defend. He has reshuffled the backline and tested the theory that less really can be more, giving Eden Hazard just a fraction of game-time and still coming up with the right answer.

Chelsea beat Manchester City to Jorginho's signature in the summer, securing a reunion with Maurizio Sarri in London, and the midfielder looks like a force to be reckoned with.

"This is a big turnaround from where they've been in the last couple of years". Unfortunately for Huddersfield and their manager David Wagner, Hazard was at his brilliant best. I saw our spirit, togetherness and good attitude today, which is what we will need to be competitive this season.

"This means we don't get carried away. That's enough for me to be confident for this Premier League season, if we keep it up". "We have a chance".

Antonio Rudiger praised Chelsea's club-record signing Kepa Arrizabalaga for being a vocal presence on the pitch despite his quiet nature off it after the goalkeeper kept a clean sheet on his debut against Huddersfield Town. We knew it would be hard.

Jorginho, N'Golo Kante, and Pedro all scored in Chelsea's 3-0 win at the John Smith's Stadium, with the Blues in a back four and featuring a new midfield of Ross Barkley, Jorginho, and Kante. Willian's delivery from the left evaded Huddersfield's cover and Kante's mistimed volley span into the ground and inside the far post.

But the Terriers were dealt a hammer blow in the 44th when referee Chris Kavanagh awarded the visitors a penalty.
