Thibaut Courtois missed Chelsea training through stress, says agent

Paul Merson has made his Premier League predictions for the opening weekend

Pedro sealed a comfortable win with a cool, chipped finish for Chelsea's third after being played in by substitute Eden Hazard. I think the best of the game was the capacity was to suffer for 15 minutes. I think he's one of the best midfielders in the world.

As we know, Kante is not known for scoring goals but he's kept up his record of scoring at least one goal in a Premier League season by getting off to a flyer this afternoon.

A recurring theme in the four years Courtois spent at Chelsea was the affection he still harboured for Spanish life and culture from his three seasons on loan at Atletico Madrid, and at his unveiling at Santiago Bernabeu, he said he was fulfilling a boyhood dream by joining their more illustrious city rivals.

Italy worldwide 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.

"I've seen the spirit, attitude and togetherness we need for our season".

The Blues were forced to move for a replacement keeper late in the transfer window as Thibaut Courtois pushed for a move to Real Madrid.

"The game was more hard than the result".

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 Terriers were then dealt a major blow just before half-time when Chelsea were awarded a penalty for Christopher Schindler's sliding tackle on Marcos Alonso. "But then I think the second half the opponents were maybe a bit exhausted, and it was a bit easier".

Prior to Sarri's side winning a penalty, they put together a 14 pass passage of play that was very easy on the eye. We made too many mistakes and you have to be clinical and use your chances. "The ref needs to explain that to us because I don't understand why (it was not retaken)".
