Chelsea might be playing really well and dominating games, but Blues midfielder Jorginho has revealed that the team is still far from playing Sarri-ball to perfection.

Jorginho played under Maurizio Sarri when the Italian was the manager of Napoli and joined him to Stamford Bridge during the summer.

Jorginho has been the centre piece in Sarri-ball both when he was at Napoli and now in Chelsea, and the central midfielder has revealed that although Chelsea are unbeaten this season and playing really well, there are still many things to improve on.

“I think we’re only at the start, we have a long way to go,” Jorginho told the official Chelsea website.

Asked in what ways Chelsea still need to improve, he explained: “In that I think we can do a lot better in our defensive game.

“In the transition phase when we lose the ball. We can I think press much more quickly and allow fewer counter attacks. They are little details that bit by bit we’re hoping to sort out.”

Even Maurizio Sarri thinks that Chelsea have a lot of things to improve on in playing Sarri-ball perfectly.

He said: “We have big margins of improvement. We’re playing in part the football we want, but not at the right speed – we need to work on that.”
