Maurizio Sarri gives Gonzalo Higuain update before Everton

Everton vs Chelsea

Chelsea travel to Everton on Sunday as they look to push into the top four.

The Blues are currently 6th in the Premier League but this Everton tie is their game in hand on 5th place Manchester United and 4th place Arsenal.

If Chelsea beat Everton they will go level on points with Arsenal, however, the Gunners do have a five better goal difference.

Chelsea head into Sunday’s game in decent form having lost just one of their last five league outings.

Everton, on the other hand, are 11th in the league and have won just one of their last five games.

Gonzalo Higuain update

Heading into the Everton game, Maurizio Sarri has provided an update on Gonzalo Higuain.

Higuain has been dealing with an illness and missed Chelsea’s Europa League tie vs Dynamo Kyiv on Thursday.

However, Sarri is hopeful the Argentine will be back fit for Everton:

“He had a stomach ache and a fever but not a serious injury. I think and I hope that he will be available.”

If Higuain is unavailable Sarri may choose to play Eden Hazard through the middle.

The Italian could also start Olivier Giroud who bagged a hat-trick earlier this week.
