Chelsea fans will be delighted to have seen Gonzalo Higuain and Eden Hazard score two goals each and form a combination of play multiple times. Their manager Sarri has now reinstated that belief.
“I know very well that, when he arrived, he wasn’t at the top of his physical condition,” Sarri said on Higuain. “Now he is improving. I’m really very happy because, apart from the goals, my feeling is he’s really suitable to play very close to Eden.
“I think that, on the pitch, they are really very suitable to play one close to the other. For us, this is very useful for Higuain because he will be able to score a lot of goals, but also for Eden.”
He also believes Chelsea can improve a lot more. “We need to arrive to play 75/77 minutes like the first 25 in this match,” Sarri added. “We need to improve the mentality because we need to play the same football with continuity and consistency.”
“If we want to play every match with the same level of quality of intensity, we have to arrive in every match with a great level of application.”
