"I fully understand the fans of Chelsea and no one has reason to blame that feeling". "I have to respect the characteristics of the players, the championship and now I study my players.

I wish him good luck in Real Madrid but now we have to concentrate on Kepa because he's our goalkeeper".

They are bold words for the new coach of Chelsea, who has seen two of his predecessors, Luiz Felipe Scolari and Andre Villas-Boas, sacked after failing in the Stamford Bridge hot seat after only eight and nine months respectively by an owner in Abramovich not known for his patience. So I hope in this month to improve the team'. We have to move the ball faster.

N'Golo Kante, one of the pioneers in France's World Cup campaign, opened the scoring in the 34th minute when he got on the end of a delightful ball into the area from Willian to break the deadlock. "I thought yesterday the best thing for him was to play 15 or 20 minutes when the opposition were probably exhausted".

"I am really very happy because in the first part of the season, I think that for us, it is not easy to gain points", Sarri said.

"A disappointing result, not a disappointing performance, especially the first half", Wagner said.

Italy global Jorginho passed home a fearless penalty in the 45th minute as Maurizio Sarri earned his first competitive win at the helm after his team went down to Manchester City in the Community Shield last weekend, while fellow debutant and the world's most expensive goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga started with a clean sheet.

For us in general it was a very good day. I felt the energy in the stadium and we were unlucky in the first half. Three goals and a clean sheet.

"If we wanted to get something today, we had to be at our very best". I had a lot of time to take care of me a year ago, so now I'm 100 per cent.

"The second goal we conceded shortly before half-time is a goal which we should never concede". We made a mistake in our frontline that led to the second goal which can not happen. Unusual, maybe. So now we are not at the top.

Jorginho converted the penalty, a skip on his run-up leaving Hamer on his backside.
