Chelsea’s Hazard relishing partnership with Higuain

  • N'Golo Kante of Chelsea in action during the Carabao Cup Semi Final Second Leg match between Chelsea and Tottenham

Eight league games is a decent enough sample size, perhaps we are just better with the Englishman in the midfield.

French media outlet Le10 Sport have reported that relations between Kante and manager Maurizio Sarri have broken down and the midfielder now wants a return to his native France.

"In the moment he is really very determined", Sarri said of Higuain.

A testing spell at the San Siro has seen Higuain's suitability to the Premier League questioned, but the striker insists he does not have a point to prove to anyone.

Higuain's only season under Sarri at Napoli was such a success that he described his coach as like a father. "I like this kind of football".

"I'm not sure. Maybe they think I can, but I know myself and I don't think I can".

Kante has arguably been the most influential signing made by Chelsea since Eden Hazard, having arrived from Leicester City a Premier League victor in the summer of 2016.

Speaking to The Times, Hazard has now hinted that his long-term future could remain with the Blues, given he is content with the progress made under manager Maurizio Sarri.

"Frankly, I don't know what Eden will do", Fabregas told Cadena SER, as quoted by Metro.

Barcelona's Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo of Juventus clearly have more pedigree than Hazard, but Sarri may have been talking about the Belgian in the context of his position on the left wing.

Sarri was full of praise for Pep Guardiola's side and also claimed the title race is between City and Liverpool.

Who do you think will come out on top this evening? "It's a football feeling, I think".

Sarri says he meets Guardiola socially in the off-season, alongside Arrigo Sacchi, the former AC Milan boss.

The Chelsea star said "We are still learning about his concept".
