When Chelsea Football Club, quite probably under the instruction of Maurizio Sarri, opted to bring in Jorginho, from Napoli, a few eyebrows were raised.

Although Jorginho is an excellent player, it was noted that the Italian’s preferred position is sitting in front of the back four and dictating the pattern of play.

At the time thoughts turned to the possibility that Sarri would be playing both Kante and Jorginho in front of the back four, thereby establishing a defensive stronghold.

But that wasn’t the case.

Instead, he’s deployed Kante out on the right, in midfield, an alien position for somebody who has contributed to two Premier League title and a World Cup playing as the holding midfielder.

Initially, Sarri’s decision looked to be the correct one, with Jorginho providing some decent performances as Chelsea started the season unbeaten, in all competitions.

But now the cracks are starting to appear, the opposition appears to have worked out that if Jorginho isn’t given the time to dictate the pace and pattern of the game, Chelsea struggle.

When pushed, previously, on whether Kante should revert to his previous role, Sarri muttered something about the player not being technical enough for the role.

But what is your opinion on the subject matter?

  • I think Sarri is doing the wrong thing. I sugguests he should change his formation of 4-3-3 to 4-2-1-3, i.e playing both kante and jorginho together as CDM to build a defensive stronghold.

  • I think playing both of them in the defensive position will go along way helping the defenders, kante is stronger and can also move faster than jorginho, the team should also get rid of morata he is not in any way part of the team

  • I think playing the 2 players (Kante and Jorginho) side by side with either Fabregas, Kovavic or Barkley in front of of them in the CAM role is the way to go. I will go for Barkley or RLC in the CAM role. With Giroud leading the line . Morata is too soft to be a leading striker in Chelsea and should be discarded soon

  • Playing Fabregas and Kante side by side is the way to go. Jorginho is not able to substitute Fabregas´creativity.

  • Kante is needed sorely in his usual position …. sooner he reverts there, less goals we will concede. Simple.

  • I think playing both man side by side will be a good move , but still the limited ability of both thinking and skill of our full backs will keep adding the anwanted pressure on Jog5 and Kante .
