Chelsea news and transfers LIVE: Thiago Silva and Saul to start, Covid-19 request denied

Bruno Lage on Jorginho

“Midfielders are very important and Jorginho is one of the best in that position at the moment.

“If you look, every time they get pressed, they always look to find Jorginho and he will find spaces in front.

“He’s very clever in that way.

“When I’ve watched him play that position, you can learn, especially when he’s playing in their half of the pitch, in the way he puts his body and starts to look right to left to find the spaces before passing the ball.

“So that’s how he’s very clever, playing that way in that position when they’re playing in their half of the pitch and with a lot of pressure.

“But Ruben is a top player too.

“Our job is to take the best from the players and we’re very happy with him.

“He provided a big assist for Saiss against Brighton and only the top players can do that.

“He could see the defenders were moving, but could see where the space was and could hit the pass at the right speed and at the right angle for Saiss to score.

“These are the little things that make some players better than others.”
