Chelsea v Tottenham Hotspur - Carabao Cup: Semi-Final Second Leg

Goals have been an issue for Chelsea in the Premier League this season.

In 23 games the Blues have only scored 40 times - 22 less than top scorers Manchester City and six less than the next lowest of the top six, Manchester United.

Chelsea started the current campaign with Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud as their two main strikers but between them they've found the back of the net just six times.

That's not good enough for a club of Chelsea's standing and aspirations, so Maurizio Sarri has brought in Gonzalo Higuain on loan from Juventus.

Higuain, 31, hasn't exactly been on fire this season having only scored six Serie A goals at AC Milan, but he's still widely regarded as a world-class striker.

Speaking in his first interview as a Chelsea player with the club's website, the Argentine explained how excited he is to get started and fire his new club to success.

"It was an opportunity that when it presented itself I couldn't miss out on," he said. "I'm really excited to be here, to be working with Sarri again and to be at a club with so much history.

"I'm just really happy to have completed the move and I hope to achieve all the goals which the club has set for itself between now and the end of the season.


"I've been following Chelsea because I know the coach and I have friends here. Now I've joined the club I'm going to give my all to help Chelsea achieve our objectives."

Higuain was unveiled to Chelsea fans prior to Thursday night's game against Tottenham at Stamford Bridge and he seemed right at home in the stands.

Chelsea won on penalties to go through to the Carabao Cup final and now footage has emerged of Higuain celebrating with his new teammates and staff as they walked off the pitch.

Just what Chelsea fans wanted to see. Higuain doesn't look like he's going to have any problems fitting in at the Bridge and seems delighted to be there.

Now it's just a question of whether the former Napoli striker can score the goals Chelsea are paying him £270,000-per-week for.
