What Jorginho said

“It was a good job,” he told UEFA TV. “It looks easy when you see the result but I think it’s because the team put such a good effort in. We deserved this big win. We need to keep pushing the way we are doing now.” 

Jorginho netted a brace for the Blues which delighted the Italian, but was disappointed to see Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner both forced off through injury.

He added: “It was good. I just feel a bit sorry for Romelu [Lukaku] because he had to off injured and Timo [Werner] as well. That’s a shame but the most important thing is that we won and we’re happy for that.” 

Jorginho also spoke to Chelsea TV post match, making it clear they need to remain focused and humble ahead of a ‘long year’.

The Italian continued: “I’m more happy for the performance (than the result) that the whole team did because everyone worked very hard and this is the way we have to keep working. Not just for me, something the whole team did.

“We need to believe in what we are doing. It was 4-0 and we didn’t stop. We kept pushing, pressing and that’s a good thing. We need to keep working like this, stay humble because it’s still a long year.”
