Newcastle vs Chelsea : It was very hard - Sarri

Sarri was not a hit with his bosses at Napoli

Sarri said: "I am very happy to be coming to Chelsea and the Premier League".

Chelsea did get a victor through Yedlin's own goal shortly after, but the Super Sunday panel still took time to debate the decisions, with some mixed opinions in the studio.

Despite being less than convincing this season, the Blues have now won their first three games and can only improve.

It is not the first time Benitez has been on the receiving end of barbed attacks from the television studio as Sky pundits Graeme Souness and Jamie Redknapp delivered a stinging appraisal of the display.

"He has plenty of experience in Serie A and the Champions League and we know he is relishing the chance to work in the Premier League". I think it's the right way to think for him but I have to think for everybody'. It's about the big picture.

For 75 minutes Chelsea had the ball and Newcastle lined up in a 5-4-1 formation, defending for their lives.

"We tried to stay in the game until the last minute but this is football - we conceded an own goal and it's an unlucky result for us".

With a quarter of an hour remaining, Fabian Schar brought down Marcos Alonso in the box, and though replays showed he got the ball first, a penalty was awarded, and Hazard converted on his return to the Chelsea starting lineup.

"It's a nice goal but it's a sad day because we lost the game".

"The reality is that we have to be safe and if we are safe, then we can try to achieve something more".

With Italy worldwide Jorginho having followed Sarri to Chelsea from Napoli and becoming the anchorman in the team's three-man midfield, many wondered how this would impact on Kante - a diminutive and dynamic player who has mastered the role of shielding a defence with his timely tackling and positional play.

"The match was very hard, they were so low and compact, it was impossible to have spaces".

"I have never seen Benitez in Italy with five defenders, so at the beginning I was really surprised".

Sarri added on his footballing philosophy: "I like it when the team is in control of the match, I like very much the ball possession, I like to play in the other half". "So I think it is not so easy to play here against this opponent". Arsenal's two defensive midfielders were high up the pitch on Jorginho, which meant the defence moved up, and it led to a very simple goal.
