Gonzalo Higuain to Chelsea – No pressure but you need to hit the ground running.

 As expected, Chelsea completed the much-anticipated loan signing of Gonzalo Higuain from Juventus late last night. The move confirmed as an initial loan deal to the end of the season with an option to extend next year, is what many believe to be an additional piece of Maurizio Sarri’s idea here at Chelsea to enhance his “Sarri-ball” system which does not work in the Premier League.

Having watched some of his highlights and reviewed the obvious qualities he has as a striker revered throughout European football in his prime, Higuain has struggled this season at AC Milan so far and if anything, the deal to come to London suits both at a time when it’s obvious there is a real disconnect between Sarri and his players.

Gonzalo Higuain has scored goals wherever he has played football and is proven throughout La Liga and Serie A. The UK bookies are taking bets on whether we believe he can be a success in the Premier League, according to online sites such as Do you believe that he can be, or do you think he will fail? Check out for the latest on Higuain and what he could possibly achieve here.

Having publicly called out his players for their attitude and the issue he currently has to try and motivate them to play for him, it’s been a critical week for the Italian who refuses to alter his tactics or his style. It will be interesting to see the reaction this evening.

Chelsea’s biggest problem of late has been the false-nine formation and the fact that we continue to use Eden Hazard as the focal point. He cannot play in the that position, he does not like playing in that position and in the last couple of games that has been evident with his involvement. Against Newcastle Eden Hazard was substituted and replaced – when would you ever expect that to happen?

For whatever reason, Maurizio Sarri isn’t a fan of Olivier Giroud and the Frenchman, a World Cup winner in the summer and proven Premier League striker, has struggled to get into the team as a result. The problem with that is the fact that every single football fan in world football is aware of Eden Hazard and where he can be most effective in games. Playing deeper than the striker(s), either out wide left or in the number ten role, Hazard likes to collect the ball when he is facing towards goal, where he can see his direct opponent and react to their challenge or the opportunity of space to move into. Not when he has his back to goal and a defender man-marking him.

The arrival of Higuain should solve the issue with Hazard back into a position where he can be an influence again. The only issue we could possibly have is that the amazing Belgian likes to play off of a focal point up front to link-up with. Is Gonzalo Higuain that type of striker or is he someone that prefers to play off the shoulder of the last defender instead looking for a ball in the channel between full-back and centre-back?

One thing is clear, it’s cost Chelsea a lot of money to bring in the Argentinian Striker and a move that defies our over-30’s policy. We’ve just let Cesc Fabregas leave the club because of our refusal to offer him a longer-term contract – he’s the same age!

In light of our current struggles and our real lack of goals this season under Sarri, in my view there has never been so much pressure on a striker’s shoulders like there is now for Higuain. The perfect scenario would be that he comes in and scores instantly to hit the ground running, builds an almost immediate understanding with the likes of Hazard, Willian, Pedro and Hudson-Odoi and fires us into the top four cementing our place in the Champions League next season.
