Higuain did not travel with the rest of the Chelsea squad ahead of Thursday’s Europa League round of 16 second-leg clash with Dynamo Kiev.

According to Sarri, the Argentina international had fever after their Premier League 1-1 draw with Wolves last Sunday.

Chelsea defeated Dynamo Kiev 3-0 in the first-leg encounter at Stamford Bridge last week Thursday.

Asked why Higuain did not travel with the Chelsea squad to Ukraine, Sarri was quoted by Metro UK as telling reporters on Wednesday: “He had fever after the Premier League match for two days, so yesterday we decided to leave him at home to recover for the next match.”
