Chelsea FC to rival Man United for Mauricio Pochettino appointment

Jorginho has found his performances criticised at times this season by those sceptical of Sarri's broader style of play, but made a positive contribution as Chelsea routed Huddersfield Town 5-0 at Stamford Bridge on Saturday to ease the pressure on their Italian coach.

Meanwhile, Higuain is confident Chelsea are set to enjoy a successful end to the season after reuniting with Sarri. Bottom of the league, Huddersfield are a Championship team in waiting, yet the manner in which Chelsea put them to the sword at least suggested the Italian's ideas have not been completely disregarded, even if they are far from fully absorbed by his players.

Chelsea next face a visit to Pep Guardiola's Manchester City, who recently beat Arsenal 3-1 courtesy of a Sergio Aguero hat-trick. We played one of the best games of our season and scored five great goals.

"We all needed that", Belgium worldwide Hazard told Chelsea's TV channel. I think they will have the ball, because it's City, they have these sort of players to play together.

"I always say when we lose a game, we need to win the game after and we did well today".

Eden Hazard and new arrival Gonzalo Higuain both helped themselves to braces in that match but will come up against a much sterner test at the home of the champions.

Hazard added: "He's a great striker". You can be the best manager in the world, but if you do not have your players behind you 100 per cent, they will make you look bad. He's a bit less of a target man than (Olivier) Giroud, but he can hold the ball, he can play one touches.

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.

Sarri was eager to bring the Argentina global to Stamford Bridge after getting the best out of him at former club Napoli. We moved the ball very fast, very well, there was good movement without the ball.

"Sometimes we missed the moment of a shot or a pass".
