Reasons why Gonzalo Higuain might not be successful at Chelsea

Reasons why Gonzalo Higuain might not be successful at Chelsea

"I can not give up but if we play well and get a win I will be just as happy".

However, Higuain's reunion with Sarri, his former manager at Napoli, might not turn out be very successful for Chelsea.

Milan's new $40 million signing Krzysztof Piatek is also likely to make his debut for the club today.

"I can't wait to play with Higuain".

"We are professional, we know we can play well and that we need to do more". Sarri is the type of character who will have appreciated the players who were courageous enough to stand against him.

Olivier Giroud has insisted Chelsea's players do not have an issue with the criticism Maurizio Sarri levelled against them following the defeat by Arsenal last Saturday.

In the attack, Eden Hazard may feature from the bench at best and hence, we are fancying Willian and Callum Hudson-Odoi to take up the right and left wing roles respectively.

Hazard has 13 goals and ten assists across all competitions, with the Belgian operating from both the left wing and as a "false nine", although the recent arrival of Gonzalo Higuain on loan could mean a return to a much-preferred wider position for the two-time Premier League victor.

The Polish striker, a replacement for Chelsea-bound Gonzalo Higuain, has already scored 13 times this season for Genoa, putting him fourth in the Serie A goal rankings. Like today, if we have a striker who can score three goals, the game finishes 5-1.

But with the arrival of Gonzalo Higuain, Chelsea fans must surely be optimistic about their star man playing in his best position alongside a top-class striker.

"It's up to him, I think. I think it's a good game to bring him in for", Walker said on Chelsea TV after the match.

Higuain sat in the stands as Chelsea FC beat Tottenham on penalties to reach the League Cup final on Thursday night.

"It's a team I've always liked that has a lot of history, a wonderful stadium and they play in the Premier League, a league I've always wanted to play in".
