Jorginho will keep improving if Chelsea play well - Maurizio Sarri

Eden Hazard Gonzalo Higuain

The pressure on Maurizio Sarri eased a little after his side thumped Huddersfield by five-nil in their last Premier League match.

"Tottenham are looking good to finish in the top four, but if I had to pick a team to get the final qualifying place for next season's Champions League, it would be United".

One potentially using midfielders in a central position in place of Jorginho, Sarri had this to say: "We are trying during the training with two players - the first is Ampadu and the second is Kovacic".

"The big games against your main rivals are so important, so when you see United winning at Wembley and then beating Arsenal in the FA Cup at Emirates Stadium, it is a big statement from Solskjaer and those players that they are ready to go again".

"We try to work with each other, Higuain is a new player but he knows what the manager wants.

He's intelligent", said Hazard.

Sarri was excited by the potential for the partnership after being backed by Chelsea to bring in 31-year-old Higuain, who scored 36 goals in 35 Serie A games at Sarri's Napoli in 2015-16.

Putin says Russia suspending missile treaty after US move
Putin has previously threatened to develop nuclear missiles banned under the INF treaty if it is scrapped. He said the military must reconfigure the existing defense budget to find money for the new weapons.

Chelsea striker Gonzalo Higuain has been discussing how he is adapting to life in English football.

When Kovacic got ready to come on in the 70th minute, most inside Stamford Bridge thought the same thing - "Barkley will be off".

"In the box he's unbelievable. He likes to knock the ball down and that's why Eden Hazard likes playing with him but Higuaín just does it with a bit more quality".

Son Heung-min profited from an error by Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka to score the only goal of the game - his ninth goal in 10 Spurs matches - with seven minutes to spare at Wembley.

Huddersfield saw a return of the Italy international's more progressive side, though Sarri was keen to point out that even his midfield lynchpin's least convincing displays this season did not occur in isolation.

Siewert said: "We were the ones who had the first chance".

"It's very hard to play one touch without the movement of the other players".
