Jorginho will keep improving if Chelsea play well - Maurizio Sarri

Argentina global Higuain joined Chelsea on loan from Juventus during the January transfer window, and scored his first goals as a Blue at the weekend, netting an expertly taken brace against Huddersfield. Bottom of the league, Huddersfield are a Championship team in waiting, yet the manner in which Chelsea put them to the sword at least suggested the Italian's ideas have not been completely disregarded, even if they are far from fully absorbed by his players.

Chelsea face Man City in the Premier League this weekend at the Etihad in a game they have to play well in if they want to keep up hopes of finishing in the top four. "We will defend well and then we will score one goal or two".

"This month is going to be hard, but we are Chelsea". Hazard is now growing in confidence, and he reckons we'll beat Man City.

Sarri, aware that Jorginho is central to his footballing philosophy, continued: "We have movements without the ball and, for Jorginho, it's easier I think".

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.

Eden Hazard and new arrival Gonzalo Higuain both helped themselves to braces in that match but will come up against a much sterner test at the home of the champions.

There are at least seven Avengers walking through one of their bases indicating they are working together. But it's not the unseen thing we should be anxious about - it's the big gap between Banner and Rhodes.

"Jorginho needs movement without the ball from other players, because he's used to play at one touch", Sarri said.

"We've improved together", he said. "In the box he's unbelievable, so he will score more goals, I think".

Huddersfield may have now lost 11 of their last 12 fixtures - the goalless draw with Cardiff the exception - to sit 13 points adrift of Premier League safety, but boss Jan Siewert saw reasons to be cheerful at Stamford Bridge.

"I always say when we lose a game, we need to win the game after and we did well today".

"Sometimes we missed the moment of a shot or a pass".
