Zola, who spent a glittering seven-year spell at the west London club in the late 90s to the early 2000s, believes that Higuain will be a massive hit for the Blues, owing to the Argentine's consistent ability to find the back of the net at the highest level. "I think it's a good game to bring him in for", Walker said on Chelsea TV after the match.
For the first time as Napoli manager, Carlo Ancelotti will return to the stadium he graced for five years as a player and then eight more as a coach.
"Here there are the type of players who will help him to do what he can do best".
"I question the mobility of Higuain and I question his ability to lead the line the way that Chelsea really need to".
"I've had a bit of family time and it was agreed I'd take over on February 1", said Bruce.
"We had a couple of games where we played well but didn't score, and at the end we finished with zero goals [despite] creating chances".
"The Owls don't score many goals - just seven in their last nine games - but they are solid defensively and they look sure to give a good account of themselves at the Bridge".
"I think he can do the same here".
While Jorginho initially had an impressive start to life in the English top flight, teams have started to figure out how to stop the Blues midfielder from dictating the play, which has subsequently seen them slide out of contention for the title and are now left battling just to finish in the top four.
"Higuain, everyone knows, his best quality is his goalscoring record", said Zola at Friday's press conference.
"Gonzalo was in a situation that we could try to buy him, so we chose to try".
Two of Serie A's top teams will go head-to-head when AC Milan hosts Napoli at the San Siro on Saturday.
Writing for BBC Sport, Gullit argues that it is risky to criticise players in such a way, even if you are right.
