Beginning his professional career in his homeland, Higuain started 2005 with a bang. As for failure, he's still scored [eight] goals in a team that isn't at the same level as Juventus.
Higuain should get a start which will lift the crowd.
Added to that, of the six players to have scored 200 or more goals in Europe's big five in the same time period, Higuain has the second best shot conversion rate (19.96 percent) behind Messi (20.94 percent). He said after his first match in charge at Chelsea that he regretted not being able to sign the striker in pre-season.
As well as clearing the way for Morata to return to the Spanish capital, the acquisition of Higuain also represents a significant departure for Chelsea, who have been reluctant to sign players over the age of 30 in recent years. "It's a team I've always liked that has a lot of history, a wonderful stadium and they play in the Premier League, a league I've always wanted to play in", Higuain said in a statement on the Chelsea website.
"Twenty years ago, 15 years ago, I would've said coming here, it's a hard age", said Zola, assistant to head coach Maurizio Sarri.
Sarri had been keen to bring in a new frontman to ease the goalscoring burden on talisman Eden Hazard.
"I now hope I can give back that trust Chelsea have shown me out on the pitch". Yes, I hope so. I think the club agree with me when I told them my opinion about the team.
Yet, with the situation at Chelsea clearly on edge after a fourth defeat in 11 Premier League matches, Sarri's decision to question Hazard's leadership qualities felt untimely.
"I don't know exactly the details of the contract, so it's very hard for me to answer", Sarri said.
"He's an instinctive player", Chelsea's head coach said. But I think we all have to react on the pitch. "It's very hard in January to find one of the most important strikers in the world". You don't have to think too much about the next game because it's not the championship - if you lose, you are out of the competition.
"It is an opportunity, and there are players that need to be rested, but we haven't discussed yet", Zola told the press ahead of the Blues FA clash with Sheffield Wednesday.
