Chelsea midfielder Jorginho has been one of the best players for the west London giants in the Premier League season in what’s a remarkable form of renaissance for the Italian national team player.
Jorginho was much maligned by the Chelsea fans while Maurizio Sarri was the Blues boss last season having followed the Italian tactician from Serie A giants Napoli to Stamford Bridge at the start of last season.
The advent of Frank Lampard as the successor to Maurizio Sarri as Chelsea manager has led to the Jorginho being rejuvenated in a Chelsea team performing well this season despite the transfer ban imposed on them by world football’s governing body FIFA.
Chelsea were unable to sign players in the summer due to the two-window transfer ban slammed on the West Londoners.

The Blues will be without the aforementioned Jorginho for the Crystal Palace game at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon.
Jorginho has accumulated five yellow cards and he’s suspended for the home game against the Eagles.
The Italian international is expected to be replaced by French midfielder N’Golo Kante who has battled with a knee problem for the majority of the new Premier League season.
Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount is also a doubt for the Crystal Palace game after picking up a knock against Dutch champions Ajax Amsterdam in the Champions League.
