Chelsea needed to respond this weekend after the horror show at Bournemouth and they did just that by thumping Huddersfield Town 5-0 at Stamford Bridge. "Then we can play sometimes with Kovacic as a central midfielder and Jorginho will be able to rest".
"Sarri is the coach who has got the best out of me as a player", Higuain told the London Evening Standard. It was evident in the wave of exasperated groans that greeted every backwards Jorginho pass; every good shooting opportunity turned down in search of a great one; every visiting counter-attack that escaped Chelsea's high press.
"It's very hard to play one touch without the movement of the other players". "So, I think Mateo Kovacic could be a very good option".
As the fulcrum of the system and symbol of "Sarriball", Jorginho has borne the brunt of the on-pitch criticism.

Sarri replaced Antonio Conte during the summer and one of his first signings was midfielder Jorginho.
'Jorginho needs movement without the ball from other players, because he's used to play at one touch, ' explained Sarri.
He failed to make a considerable impact during his two years at the Nou Camp before he joined Merseyside giants Everton on loan at the start of this season. "He's a bit less of a target man than Giroud, but he can hold the ball, he can play one touches and he's intelligent".
Eden Hazard has predicted how Chelsea are going to defeat Manchester City when the two sides meet in the Premier League next Sunday. "In the box he's unbelievable, so he will score more goals, I think". "He will score more goals".
Sarri experimented with Ampadu in the Jorginho role against Sheffield Wednesday but resorted to sending on Kovacic after the break to push the Welshman further forward - the position which N'Golo Kante has found himself in under the Italian.
