Chelsea striker Higuain: Sarri can get best out of me

"I think that in the first 25 minutes we played our football", Sarri said after watching Chelsea score more than two goals in a Premier League match for the first time since November.

The west Londoners recovered from their humbling defeat to Bournemouth with a comprehensive 5-0 victory over Huddersfield on Saturday, with their manager saying "Sarri-ball" was starting to click. The question these days is not how to nullify central midfield pivot Jorginho, but merely who has been assigned the marking job.

Everton midfielder Andre Gomes has reportedly been linked with a summer move to fellow Premier League side Chelsea.

Son Heung-min profited from an error by Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka to score the only goal of the game - his ninth goal in 10 Spurs matches - with seven minutes to spare at Wembley.

"Higuain played very well with his movements, with one-twos around the box, so it was very good for us".

As the fulcrum of the system and symbol of "Sarriball", Jorginho has borne the brunt of the on-pitch criticism.

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

But Sarri retains his faith in Jorginho and felt he had a strong game against Huddersfield, putting the emphasis on the players around him to do more to help him.

"Jorginho played very well", the 60-year-old said, via The Mirror.

Goals always lift the mood.

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 has played with so many strikers since joining the club back in 2012.

He will need to.

Sarri experimented with Ampadu in the Jorginho role against Sheffield Wednesday but resorted to sending on Kovacic after the break to push the Welshman further forward - the position which N'Golo Kante has found himself in under the Italian.
