Sarri joked. "I don't know the mother of Gonzalo".

'The way I am can be a weakness to be the best player in the world.

The Blues boss is encouraged by the relationship developing between Eden Hazard and Higuain. Though Chelsea succeeded before Hazard, and will go on to win plenty in the years post his departure, he's one of the top five players on the planet, and it's been a pleasure to see him in action in SW6 over the past six-and-a-half-years.

And as Chelsea bid to hold off the challenge of Arsenal and Manchester United for Champions League qualification, Sarri feels Hazard and Higuain hold the key. But I will try.

Fabregas may no longer be a Chelsea player, with the Spaniard signing for AS Monaco last month, but there will always be a place in his heart for our football club.

"When we have the ball, we have a lot of freedom, not just me but the striker and the right [attacker], Willian or Pedro, so we can move a lot". Sarri is a great manager. "It's a football feeling, I think".

'I've only played two games with Higuaon and I know we can do something great together, not only with him but also with the other strikers, the other winger.

While Sarri is ambiguous over what he expects from Hazard over a potential new contract, former teammate Cesc Fabregas is more confident. "But Higuain is a fantastic striker".

Chelsea travel to the Eithad on Sunday to take on Manchester City knowing a loss could see Manchester United overtake them in fourth place.
