Sarri urges his players to support this superstar more

Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard described new signing Gonzalo Higuain as "unbelievable" in the box after the Argentina worldwide scored twice in Saturday's 5-0 thrashing of the Premier League's bottom side Huddersfield Town.

The Argentina global is looking forward to working with Sarri again at Stamford Bridge and is optimistic Chelsea can finish the season successfully. The question these days is not how to nullify central midfield pivot Jorginho, but merely who has been assigned the marking job.

"Sarri is the coach who has got the best out of me as a player", Higuain told the London Evening Standard.

Son Heung-min profited from an error by Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka to score the only goal of the game - his ninth goal in 10 Spurs matches - with seven minutes to spare at Wembley.

'So the team in the first 25-30 minutes played very well, we have movements without the ball and for Jorginho it's easier I think'. At times he has also deserved it, becoming a little passive and tentative as he adapts to a league more intense and physical than anything he has known before. He's a bit less of a target man than (Olivier) Giroud, but he can hold the ball, he can play one touches.

"The stadiums are full, there's a great atmosphere, so this is something very nice for the players and in the streets you can go about your day very calmly, very relaxed".


He failed to make a considerable impact during his two years at the Nou Camp before he joined Merseyside giants Everton on loan at the start of this season.

His presence also allowed Eden Hazard to do what he does best from the left wing, and there were encouraging flashes of chemistry between the pair. He's intelligent. In the box he's unbelievable.

He will need to.

Sarri's changes had become extremely predictable and his favourite was to replace Kovacic with Barkley or vice-versa.

Higuain returns to action with Chelsea on Sunday, February 10, with a trip to English champions Manchester City.
