Chelsea boss Sarri: Higuain arrival has lifted everyone

The Argentine forward got off the mark with a brace against Huddersfield Town last weekend, helping the Blues to a crushing 5-0 victory over the embattled outfit.

"We know at that moment there are some fantastic wings in modern football: [Ousmane] Dembele, we have also [Raheem] Sterling who is a fantastic player, Anthony Martial, Eden Hazard... but I think Marcus is different".

And as Chelsea bid to hold off the challenge of Arsenal and Manchester United for Champions League qualification, Sarri feels Hazard and Higuain hold the key. He missed a penalty in the last match in Serie A and he missed a penalty in the final [for Argentina].

"I think that Gonzalo is suitable for my football".

No defensive awareness - now is that down to individual culpability, like Alonso going AWOL at a defensive free-kick, that allows City to score an easy opener, or Sarri's inability to pick players in their right positions, or indeed coach them how to defend? He is able to react really well despite the difficulties. I don't know the mother of Gonzalo!'

Olivia said: "We were talking about diversity and equality and then Eden Hazard walked in!"

'He is very useful for Eden.

"I think he is already a top, top, top player but I think he will even improve with time in [his] decision-making and he will be unstoppable".

'He needs confidence first of all.

That apparently comes from the nature of Kante's relationship with Blues manager Maurizio Sarri - which is apparently not as good as it was with previous boss Antonio Conte.

According to him, manager Maurizio Sarri wants him to deliver up to 40-50 goals per season but he made is unsure if it is an actable target for him. Sometimes he needs a message from the coach in the press conference.
