Chelsea edge Newcastle amid late Yedlin drama

       Rafael Benitez is demanding a quick response from his team to the mistakes they made at Cardiff

David Luiz is enjoying a new lease of life at Chelsea under Maurizio Sarri and concedes he might no longer be at Stamford Bridge if Antonio Conte was still in charge.

"It was only a decision about the positions, I chose to put on the bench two wingers and one midfielder", Sarri said in a pre-match press conference.

Clearly referencing the Bianconeri's €112million signing of Cristiano Ronaldo, Hamsik said: "Quite simply, there are very strong opponents in Italy, teams built for years to win in Serie A and now seem built to win in Europe too".

The speed with which the players adapt to the changing requirements at the back could determine how successful Sarri is in his first season in England. Newcastle's failure to deal with a free-kick ended with Yedlin turning in Alonso's volley through a crowded box and there was no way back for the home side.

'We talk about Sarri-ball but what's Rafa-ball, they didn't touch it.

It was possession that they were unable to turn into goals until Fabian Schar's challenge on Spanish defender Alonso produced a penalty. I don't know if I'm a very good coach if I teach another [way of] football.

"I think we are in the beginning".

Benitez, though, is not interested in what they have to say and there will be more of the same when Newcastle travel to the Etihad Stadium to play champions Manchester City next weekend. "We are only three games in".

And the 59-year-old Italian knows this kind of concern always plagues him during his arrival at a new club, citing that his specific defensive instruction to "watch the ball" and "not the man" requires unlearning techniques previously ingrained in players.

"I think Loftus-Cheek will remain with us". Having endured a season of his shortfalls, we had hoped not to witness much more.

Chelsea enjoyed 81 percent possession in the match, with summer signing Jorginho completing more passes (158) than the entire Newcastle team, but they found clear chances hard to come by with home goalkeeper Martin Dubravka well protected.
