Pedro, Eden Hazard net as Chelsea defeat Bournemouth

Pedro, Eden Hazard net as Chelsea defeat Bournemouth

Sarri had warned before the opening game of the league campaign that his side would face a hard start as he attempted to implement a very different approach to that employed by Conte.

He has make one appearance in the English Premier League for the Blues this season.

And Sarri, whose side host Bournemouth on Saturday, expects his gifted youngster to eventually emerge with Chelsea as well.

Benching the Spanish worldwide deprived Chelsea of their killer instinct in the final third, a point Pedro made seven minutes after he came on for Willian when he jinked onto his right foot and guided a precise shot into the far corner.

Howe included Jefferson Lerma, the Colombia World Cup player signed for a club record fee of £25 million ($32 million) from Levante, and left-back Diego Rico for their Bournemouth debuts and switched to a back three to contain Chelsea's threat.

Sarri is delighted with the win and is happy that his players showed the patience to keep playing their football in order to get the goal as he was confident that breakthrough would come in the final quarter of the game.

Chelsea remained in the ascendancy as the first half progressed with Willian dragging a shot marginally wide of Asmir Begovic's post, but the best opportunity of the opening 45 minutes went to the visitors.




"I think now for us it's better to think of the next match".

The Spain striker won fewer than half his 16 duels and touched the ball only 11 times before being taken off for Giroud, who played a role in helping Pedro score Chelsea's first.

"They were very organised and they defended very well but usually in this match you have to be patient because you can win in the last 20 minutes".

"The gap at the beginning [to last season's champions Manchester City] was 30 points. I think Loftus will be very, very important and very useful to us".

"I'm really very happy with him".

"It depends upon the situation on the pitch", Sarri said of his decision.

"We changed the position and, in the new position, he needs to improve". "At the moment, we crossed three, four, five times, so I thought Giroud, in that moment, was better".
