GONZALO HIGUAIN passionately celebrated Chelsea’s win over Spurs last night.
And fans believe they finally have the right man to fill Diego Costa’s boots after his vivid display.
The Argentine was signed from Juventus on a loan until the end of the season.
But he was unable to feature in the Carabao Cup clash with Tottenham as he was not registered in time.
That didn’t stop Chelsea from presenting him to the crowd on Thursday night.
The striker received a raucous welcome from the home supporters.
