Thomas Tuchel explained that Chelsea might have put more past Aston Villa on the weekend if Jorginho had featured from the first whistle.
Speaking to the club website, the Blues boss highlighted Jorginho’s significance to the side, referencing his substitute role in Saturday’s Premier League victory.
Chelsea managed to pick up a comprehensive 3-0 Stamford Bridge win over Villa at the weekend.
Romelu Lukaku smashed in a couple strikes into the Villan’s net, whilst Mateo Kovacic grabbed a rare personal accolade by scoring just his third goal for the Blues.
But the three points weren’t assured until Jorginho entered into the equation at half time, replacing debutant Saul Niguez.
The team regained control of the proceedings, enforced by their metronome midfielder.
In the end, Chelsea comfortably dispatched their guests, but couldn’t fully relax until the Italian’s cool presence came onto the pitch.
