Chelsea's new manager, Maurizio Sarri, says he has a month to put his team in shape and familiarize them with the high intensity football that was dubbed & # 39; Sarri-ball & # 39; during his time at Napoli in Serie A.

With the first international break in four weeks, Sarri says that only now can he really get to work, since World Cup stars such as Eden Hazard, Olivier Giroud and N & # 39; Golo Kante returned to training last week.

Sarri says next month will be crucial to determining the success of his team by adapting to a new system, before the Europa League and Carabao Cup games begin to accumulate.

Sarri said he could not simply replicate the attractive style for which he became famous in Empoli and Napoli, but indicated that the next few weeks would be critical.

"I do not want to make another Naples," Sarri said. "I want to make a good Chelsea." I have to adapt to the characteristics of this championship and (my) players. I am studying my players.

"We are lucky now, because for four weeks we only have one game a week. [after that] It will be difficult, especially with national teams. So I hope in this month to improve the team. "

Despite the good result, the boss Sarri believes that his team fought tactically against a back of three.

Sarri acknowledged that his team had problems against Huddersfield in the first half of Saturday because they lacked the tactical base that is their way of playing to fit the three defenses of Huddersfield, a system that had not yet faced in the preseason.

He said: They never played a 3-5-1-1 in the preseason. So we were not ready for this situation and it was a problem and this team did not have the experience against this.

"Maybe for Napoli in the last year it would not have been a problem, but for Chelsea, with some of the players who only had three days of training, it was a problem."
