Chelsea striker in contention for debut

25th January 2019, 18:11 by Bobbie Jackson

Chelsea are likely to hand Gonzalo Higuain his debut in Sunday’s FA Cup fourth-round tie with Sheffield Wednesday.

Higuain signed on loan from Juventus until the end of the season, with further options, on Wednesday, but was ineligible for Thursday's Carabao Cup semi-final success over Tottenham.

Maurizio Sarri is likely to make changes following the midweek engagement with Spurs and Callum Hudson-Odoi should be called into the starting XI.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who has been sidelined by a back problem, will be assessed prior to kick off at Stamford Bridge.

Alvaro Morata is understood to be on the verge of joining Atletico Madrid and is unlikely to be considered.
