Jorginho evaded markers and haters to take back control for Chelsea against Fulham, as the blues ran out comfortable 2-0 winners.
Jorginho and Kante’s midfield displays were enough to stave off the critics as Chelsea ran out 2-0 winners against Fulham at Stamford Bridge in their west London derby.
The £57 million summer signing had been stifled in recent weeks as Everton and Tottenham both brilliantly shut him down with man-marking.
Jorginho successfully evaded Fulham’s Tom Cairney on Sunday afternoon, as Mateo Kovacic and Kante also shone in the win.
Kante was criticised by his manager after the 3-1 defeat to Spurs for losing his discipline but he produced a complete display in defence, and even attack, where many think he is lacking the required attributes to play in his more advanced role.
Despite the scoreline, it was further proof to demonstrate that they will not win the Premier League this season, with a top-four finish the main aim in Sarri’s first year in charge.
Arsenal are hunting Chelsea’s fourth spot down and it will take a big effort for the Blues to stay ahead of Unai Emery’s side between now and May.
