Chelsea fans stunned by star’s gesture in their FA Cup clash

Chelsea confirmed a spot in the fifth round of the FA Cup as they comfortably got the better of Sheffield Wednesday 3-0 at the Stamford Bridge

Brazilian winger Willian netted once in each half and teenage sensation Callum Hudson-Odoi added one in the second half to see the home side stroll past the Championship side. The game was also marked by the debut of Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain for the Blues. The 31 year old has joined the Blues on loan from Juventus, which will see him play for Chelsea till the end of the season.

The Blues have struggled for goals this season, especially when talisman Eden Hazard has failed to find the net. Both of their strikers, Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud have struggled for any kind of form in front of goal. Giroud has scored just 5 goals in 27 appearances across all competitions this season. He has scored just once in 18 premier league appearances this season. Meanwhile, Morata has done slightly better as he has scored 9 times in 24 appearances this season. But these numbers are nowhere near what one would expect of a striker playing for a top club like Chelsea.

Higuain played for Napoli under Sarri and alos broker therecord for the most goals in a single Serie A season there. While Higuain did not manage to score on his debut for the Blues yesterday, he has already managed to get many Blues fans on his side because of his gesture yesterday. Chelsea were awarded a penalty in the 26th minute and Willian offered Higuain the chance to score his 1st goal for the Blues. However, Higuain refused and insisted that Willian take the spot kick which was eventually converted by the Brazilian.
