Chelsea's Hazard backs new signing Higuain to succeed in England

Chelsea's Hazard backs new signing Higuain to succeed in England

Victory lifted Chelsea back into the top four above Arsenal.

Sarri was pleased with Jorginho's role in Chelsea's greater fluidity going forward - they scored more than twice in a Premier League match for the first time since November - and claimed that the midfielder's less convincing displays this season have been due in part to the mistakes of those around him.

"This month is going to be hard, but we are Chelsea".

Eden Hazard and new arrival Gonzalo Higuain both helped themselves to braces in that match but will come up against a much sterner test at the home of the champions.

Maurizio Sarri has been under serious pressure since the Blues's defeat against Bournemouth in their last Premier League tie which was Chelsea's worst loss so far under Abramovich.

Considering the fact that he's played three games with the team, Chelsea fans must wake up to the truth that Higuain hasn't done enough to earn their praise. City have these kinds of players to play together.


Chelsea also face Manchester United in the FA Cup fifth round on February 18, either side of Europa League last-32 legs with Malmo of Sweden and Tottenham in the Premier League, after the Wembley final. He's a great striker. he can hold the ball, he can play one touch, he's intelligent.

Higuain scored 37 goals in his only season under Sarri at Napoli and he thinks he can now replicate that form with the Italian once more. "So, I think Mateo Kovacic could be a very good option. We will defend well and then we will score one goal or two".

It took the former Real Madrid striker just 16 minutes to score the first goal of the night, thereby opening his goalscoring account for the West London outfits.

"I think it was a good discussion, important for everyone and today we showed it was important for us to make a point".

It's pretty clear, though, that Sarri wants a playmaker who can build attacks as his central midfield pivot, as opposed to a naturally defensive-minded player like Kante.

"It is not easy, of course, and it is a long way but we need to try to improve in mentality".
