CHELSEA star Jorginho has been told by manager Maurizio Sarri that he needs stay in position ahead of his side’s huge top four clash with Manchester United on Sunday.
Jorginho was signed by Chelsea and Sarri last summer for £57million after the Italian manager campaigned to bring his ex-Napoli midfielder to Stamford Bridge with him.
After tarting the season in dominant fashion, Jorginho’s progress in England has slowed down a bit.
This is something that the Italian-Brazilian has put down to the differences in style between Italy and England.
“The game in Italy is more tactical, here [in England it] is more physical,” he told Sky Italia.
Jorginho has scored two goals this season for Chelsea, a penalty against Huddersfield on the first day before notching a brilliant finish against Fulham a few weeks ago.
Chelsea have been in topsy-turvy form this season, having originally started their campaign unbeaten until the end of November.
Since then, however, Sarri’s tactics have unravelled and the club find themselves fighting to finish in the top four.
Their game with Manchester United, who are also battling for a Champions League place, could decide both teams’ seasons.

Jorginho has been told what he needs to do in order to ensure victory for his side at Old Trafford on Sunday.
“I need to help the team to overcome the pressing of the opponents,” he added.
“I am not urged to dribble [past] two or three men and score, I need to manage the different dynamics of the game.
“We need to create as many goalscoring chances as possible.

“That’s the only way we can score. We’ll need our strikers for the next three finals that we are due to play.
“It’s going to be a tough game at the Old Trafford, but we will be ready, we need a win to end up fourth [in the table].”
Sarri is under pressure at the helm in west London and will have to ensure a top four finish one way or another.
If Chelsea can’t secure Champions League qualification through their league position, they have the option of trying to win the Europa League, where they next come up against German outfit Eintracht Frankfurt in the semi-final.
