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

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

Probably Chelsea fans can agree with me that wasn't the Ashley Cole they knew at Arsenal.

Gonzalo Higuain has admitted that Maurizio Sarri is the coach who gets the best out of his skill set as the Argentine and the Italian are reunited at Chelsea.

"I can see there is a change from the Italian League because here the defenders go into you harder, especially when you receive the ball to feet", he told the Evening Standard.

Chelsea also face City in the final of the League Cup later in February, as well as a tricky fifth-round FA Cup tie with Manchester United, but Hazard is relishing these tough tests. Willian has played 24 Premier League games this campaign but has just three goals and four assists to his name.

A confident Hazard predicted: 'I think they will have the ball.

Defeats to Wolves, Leicester City and Bournemouth - as well as a home stalemate with struggling Southampton - have them looking over their shoulder in fourth place, with Chelsea sitting 11 points behind leaders Liverpool having played a game more.

"Eden Hazard needs to leave Stamford Bridge - to rid Chelsea of its toxic dressing room".

"He's a great striker".

Sarri was excited by the potential for the partnership after being backed by Chelsea to bring in 31-year-old Higuain, who scored 36 goals in 35 Serie A games at Sarri's Napoli in 2015-16. We didn't play with our backs to the opposing goal like in the last match, with five players doing it in the last match.

"He's a bit less of a target man than (Olivier) Giroud, but he can hold the ball, he can play one touches and he's intelligent".

But surprisingly, Belgium worldwide Eden Hazard is said to be among the players that should be sold this summer which will be a cheering news for Spanish club Real Madrid.

"In the box he's unbelievable". For us that is very useful.

"He wants us to reach a same level of application and focus in every game, because the most important is the win and to be ready for every kind of game".

"I think Kovacic could be a very good option, then we need to recover completely [Ruben] Loftus-Cheek after the back problem".
