Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri reveals exactly why Gonzalo Higuain is struggling

Eden Hazard celebrates scoring for Chelsea

"We need him at his top level in the last two months".

But Cardiff manager Warnock was more effusive in his praise for the teenager, who is yet to start a Premier League game for Chelsea, as he battles Eden Hazard, Willian and Pedro for a place in his club side's first XI.

"He said to me that it's hard, because the physical impact of the defenders here is really very strong", said Sarri.

"The referees here are really very different than in Italy, so it's another football for him". It is really very different, so he needs time, but we have no time.

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has stressed his frustration about the global break and claimed several of his players are exhausted after a heavy workload in the last fortnight. When there is a match, when there is training, for me everything is very important.

"It's not easy to get used to this championship". We need Gonzalo at the very top.

"The level is different, the way of playing is different, and I think that especially for a striker is really very hard to get used to the Premier League in only one, two months".

Friends told police they were concerned as Josephson didn't show up at her downtown home or failed to answer repeated phone calls. Officials said a suspect identified as Nathaniel David Rowland has been arrested in connection with Josephson's death.

English pair Ross Barkley and Callum Hudson-Odoi each played twice in qualifiers, while France's Olivier Giroud and N'Golo Kante were also in action for their nations.

"But if we get ourselves up for it, we can give these teams a good game - especially at home".

"Not for me, we have players exhausted now. He's a fighter, he's able to fight in every match".

"He improved a lot in the defensive phase".

Chelsea can't afford many more slip ups if they want Champions League football next season and that's why they need their star players on top of their game.

Cardiff remain in the relegation zone with eight matches of the Premier League season to go, with the Bluebirds yet to pick up a point against top-six opponents. Now I think he is also a good player in the defensive phase. Anyone could have a disaster, lose four or five games and then find themselves in trouble.

Higuain moved to Chelsea in January in a loan move until the end of the season.
