Chelsea striker, Gonzalo Higuain has disclosed the difference between English Premier League, EPL, and Serie A.
Higuain, who joined Chelsea on loan from Juventus last month, said Premier League defenders mark harder compared to their counterparts in the Serie A.
The Argentine international scored a brace in Chelsea’s 5-0 victory over Huddersfield Town over the weekend.
“I can see there is a change from the Italian league because here the defenders go into you harder, especially when you receive the ball to feet,” Higuain was quoted by Metro UK as saying.
“This is a big difference, but I have got a good impression of English football and as I gradually get to know my team-mates it will only get better for me.
“When I was growing up I watched all of the different leagues, but especially lately you see a lot more of the Premier League so I knew about it before I came here.
“I think it’s a very fascinating league and also the way they play here in England — with a lot of dynamism — is really great.
“The stadiums are full, there’s a great atmosphere, so this is something very nice for the players and in the streets, you can go about your day very calmly, very relaxed.
“You don’t have to worry about many things and this is important for the players because it actually allows you to live life like an ordinary person,” he added.
Higuain will hope to lead Chelsea to victory when they tackle Manchester City in their next Premier League fixture.
