Opinion: Jorginho and Higuain’s telepathic connection could leave Sarri and co drooling

Opinion: Jorginho and Higuain’s telepathic connection could leave Sarri and co drooling

Chelsea gave their chances of finishing in the top four a huge boost over the weekend after they beat west London rivals Fulham 2-1 at Craven Cottage.

The Blues now sit just two points below fourth-placed Manchester United with a game in hand thanks to the goalscorers on the day Gonzalo Higuain and match-winner Jorginho.

The duo performed well overall and the connection they shared on the Craven Cottage pitch was a very promising sign for Maurizio Sarri’s side.

Like during their time together at Napoli, Jorginho created some golden opportunities for Higuain with the Chelsea No.9 unlucky to walk away from the derby with just a sole goal to his name.

Nevertheless, in Higuain, Sarri and Chelsea look to have the centre-forward they have been lacking for the majority of the campaign. And if Jorginho can continue to pick him out like how he did at Craven Cottage, then the goals should start flowing.

The balls the Brazilian-born Italy international was playing into his team-mate were reminiscent of the ones Cesc Fabregas often gave Diego Costa when the two were both Chelsea players.

A partnership half as good as that between Jorginho and Higuain, and Sarri could be onto something special.
