Chelsea

Blues set to bring Higuain back

15th March 2019, 19:31 by Aidan Perkins

Gonzalo Higuain could be back for Chelsea's trip to Everton on Sunday after he missed the Europa League win at Dynamo Kiev.

Argentinian striker Higuain did not travel for the European tie on Thursday due to illness and faces competition to regain his starting spot following Olivier Giroud's hat-trick in Ukraine.

Blues head coach Maurizio Sarri, who appears to have no fresh selection issues, is expected to restore the likes of Cesar Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Jorginho and Eden Hazard to his starting line-up at Goodison Park as Chelsea look to stay in the hunt for a top-four finish.
