The Italian gaffer has been forced to play Eden Hazard in a false No.9 position, and the Belgium ace is looking forward to linking up with the ex-Napoli bagsman.
“This season we have been playing good but we missed the guy to score just one goal,” he said.
“It was like that against Spurs. If we had a striker that could score three goals, the game would have finished 5-1. But that hasn’t been the case. [Gonzalo] Higuain can do that. He is a top scorer, he can score anywhere.
“Have we missed a striker like Costa since he left? Yes of course. I like playing with Giroud and Morata, but when Olivier is playing he is doing his best for the side, he is more of a team player than a striker that just scores goals.”
Chelsea are back in action on Sunday in the FA Cup, before resuming their league campaign the following Wednesday vs. Bournemouth.
