Jorginho will keep improving if Chelsea play well - Maurizio Sarri

Higuain is yet to face any of the top-four teams so far, hence, pundits and his teammates must save their praise until the Stamford Bridge outfits tackle Manchester City next weekend.

Eden Hazard believes Gonzalo Higuain's first two goals for Chelsea in Saturday's 5-0 rout of Huddersfield are just the beginning for the Argentine ace, with whom he foresees a potentially lethal partnership in the Premier League run in.

Any prolonged injury absence for Jorginho could be costly for Chelsea, who must navigate matches against Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham in the Premier League, FA Cup fifth round and Carabao Cup final in February.

"It's going to be a different game than two or three months ago", Hazard told Chelsea TV.

"So I think Kovacic (to stand in for Jorginho) could be a very good option, then we need to recover completely Loftus-Cheek after his back problem". City have these kinds of players to play together.

But the Blues boss was keen to praise the partnership of Hazard and Higuain after the thrashing of lowly Huddersfield at Stamford Bridge, with the Italian adamant that the duo will get the best out of each other.

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. Kovacic is really close to Jorginho in moving the ball really fast at one-touch.

"We had no rules in terms of we could go and play where we wanted, the left and right-backs were going at the same time, which is unheard of at times, and we were playing some great football". He's intelligent. In the box he's unbelievable.

But surprisingly, Belgium global 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.

"He is a great striker and he can score a lot of goals".

Although we may well hand the title to Liverpool if we win at the Etihad, we have ambitions of our own that we need to focus on.

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.
