Chelsea assistant coach Gianfranco Zola claims that their newest loan capture of Gonzalo Higuain from Juventus is expected to enable Hazard to feature out wide on a more regular basis.
Zola admits that the Belgium international prefers to operate off a striker.
“It was very, very similar to when I first came here,” Zola added FourFourTwo.
“I had Mark Hughes or Luca Vialli, who when I could play off them it was much better for me because it would give me space and freedom.
“I would use their physicality to get the spaces I wanted and we played fantastically, so I understand for Eden. He has a very good understanding with [Olivier] Giroud that we saw yesterday [Thursday]. Olivier had a fantastic game in my opinion. I am sure he will gain the same understanding with Gonzalo Higuain.”
