Eden Hazard sends message to Gonzalo Higuain after Chelsea FC win

  • Gonzalo Higuain scored twice on his home Premier League debut

Hazard scored twice to take his season's tally to 15, while Gonzalo Higuain netted a brace for his first goals for Chelsea, who travel to the Etihad Stadium next Sunday.

Serious doubts were raised about the Italian's position as head coach at Stamford Bridge following a 4-0 thrashing away at Bournemouth last week. The question these days is not how to nullify central midfield pivot Jorginho, but merely who has been assigned the marking job.

"I think he (Sarri) will be happy, because he was wanting a reaction from us and we gave him one", Hazard told Sky Sports after the game.

"We were really very unsafe, we didn't play back to the opposition goal like in the last match with five players sometimes". At times he has also deserved it, becoming a little passive and tentative as he adapts to a league more intense and physical than anything he has known before.

But, to the relief of everyone, Kovacic replaced Jorginho for the final 20 minutes although Sarri afterwards revealed his decision had been influenced by the former Napoli midfielder feeling pain in his groin.

Andre Gomes has reignited his career at Everton and he has been one of the best players in an inconsistent team.


He failed to make a considerable impact during his two years at the Nou Camp before he joined Merseyside giants Everton on loan at the start of this season. He's a great striker. he can hold the ball, he can play one touch, he's intelligent.

His presence also allowed Eden Hazard to do what he does best from the left wing, and there were encouraging flashes of chemistry between the pair.

Hazard added: "He's a great striker".

Chelsea next face a visit to Pep Guardiola's Manchester City, who recently beat Arsenal 3-1 courtesy of a Sergio Aguero hat-trick. "In the box he's unbelievable, so he will score more goals, I think".

"Pipita", as he is affectionately known, had been struggling for goals prior to his move to England, finding chances hard to come by in an AC Milan side that many believe to lack creativity.
