Update On Real Madrid's Interest In Chelsea's Eden Hazard

The Belgium global has only recently reported back to Chelsea FC after his involvement in the World Cup with his national team.

Sarri utilised Jorginho in a deep role for large portions of Saturday's emphatic opening day victory over Huddersfield, which freed up N'Golo Kante to express himself further up the pitch.

The Blues lost their former first-choice keeper Thibaut Courtois to Real Madrid last week in a deal that saw Mateo Kovacic arriving at Stamford Bridge on a season-long loan deal.

Huddersfield striker Steve Mounie's header had hit the inside of a post as David Wagner's side responded well to Kante's opener before Pedro drove home the third goal after being set up by second-half substitute Hazard.

"I am very happy because in the first part of the season for us it is not easy to gain points".

We are not a physical team and I think the best of the game is the capacity of suffering for 15 minutes.

Fans packed out a stand in the Estadio de la Ceramica to watch magician Yunke produce Cazorla seemingly out of thin air. The former Arsenal ace was given a magician's welcome, as he appeared from within a glass tube filled with smoke.

"I have seen passion, desire, the spirit, which we usually have in our game".

Chelsea's need for a proven goalkeeper emerged after Curtois forced his exit by going AWOL after his World Cup commitments with the Belgian national side.

"I think that Eden in this moment can not play for 90 minutes, he needs to have training", Sarri said of the Belgium star. Chelsea understood the situation and really helped to get the deal.

It was telling that Chelsea's first two goals came from their only two shots on target in the first half, and that one of those was a penalty, awarded for Christopher Schindler's foul on Marcos Alonso after a nice flick from Ross Barkley.

"It's a move he wanted because of his family and because also he had the opportunity to go back to Madrid - a city he loves - and to such a big club in Real Madrid", Henrotay said. We made too many mistakes and you have to be clinical and use your chances.

"I very much enjoy his attitude when I am working with him", Sarri said.
