Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard is convinced that he can form a great partnership with the club's new striker Gonzalo Higuaín after playing two matches together.
Chelsea signed Higuaín on loan from Juventus last month and the Argentina striker scored twice in last week's 5-0 thumping of the Premier League's bottom club Huddersfield Town. Hazard, who also scored two goals in that game at Stamford Bridge, said he was already enjoying playing alongside the former Real Madrid and Napoli striker.
"I've only played two games with Higuaín and I know we can do something great together, not only with him but also with the other strikers, the other winger,' Hazard told The Times ahead of Sunday's league meeting with Manchester City.
Higuaín and Hazard
"Chelsea is not about Higuaín and Hazard, it is about 25 players. But Higuaín is a fantastic striker." Victory over Huddersfield followed league defeats by Arsenal and Bournemouth where midfielder Jorginho was man-marked to nullify the Italy international's influence.
"If one guy is marking him all the time, we need to adapt also. Jorginho is always trying to be free to take the ball to create something. He's a fantastic player," Hazard said.
