No Higuain fears for Sarri
Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is convinced Gonzalo Higuain will be a success at Stamford Bridge when he is fully fit.
Higuain made his Premier League debut on Wednesday night in the Blues' 4-0 defeat at Bournemouth, but he failed to make any real impact and was withdrawn from the action with 25 minutes remaining.
The Argentine striker, who also featured in the FA Cup win over Sheffield Wednesday, has joined Chelsea from AC Milan and had only just returned to action after the Italian winter break when he made the move to London.
Sarri has no concerns regarding the 29-year-old, who he worked with at Napoli, and feels Higuain will be a real threat in the Premier League when fully fit.
"You can tell he's [Higuain] not at the top [of his shape] yet," Sarri told Italy's Gazzetta dello Sport. "In the last month, between his back pain and the transfer window, he didn't train properly. He just needs to get back into a better condition."
