Maurizio Sarri believes his "footballing son" Gonzalo Higuain is already having a transformative effect on Chelsea and insists he is the flawless striker to make Sarri-ball come to life.

The Argentina striker last weekend scored twice against Huddersfield - his first goals for Chelsea on his third appearance since signing on loan from Juventus - and is expected to lead the attack on Sunday at Manchester City. Eight league games is a decent enough sample size, perhaps we are just better with the Englishman in the midfield.

The 31-year-old also admitted that Blues' manager Maurizio Sarri is the right man to get the best out of him due to their success together at Napoli. He was really very keen and he played an exceptional season. "But Higuain is a fantastic striker".

The outfielder was the only baseball player to be named Most Valuable Player in both the National League and American League. Robinson broke into major leagues in 1956 as a hot hitter and graceful fielder with the National League's Cincinnati Reds .

And, in an exclusive interview with Sky Sports, Higuain is confident Sarri could help him rekindle that form in the Premier League.

"I think that Gonzalo is suitable for my football".

The Blues boss is encouraged by the relationship developing between Eden Hazard and Higuain.

North Korea has repeatedly urged a lifting of punishing USA -led sanctions, a formal end to the war, and security guarantees. But Washington has insisted that North Korea needs to first take more concrete steps toward denuclearization.

Hazard this week admitted to having made a decision on his future, with his Chelsea contract expiring in June 2020 and amid repeated links with a £100million summer move to Real Madrid. After 30 minutes, I would have thrown caution to the wind and sent a stark, damning message to the players, that this is not good enough.

The Chelsea manager, on the other hand, heavily praised the 28-year-old Belgian forward and declared him as the best player of Europe last Friday. I think he is able react very well to the difficulties.

Normally I would wait until the end of a game before ranting and raving about what I have seen, but being 4-0 down after a mere twenty minutes, even my legendary patience of supporting Chelsea over 40 years has waned to the point of actually wanting to cry.
