Frank Lampard wants his Chelsea team to play out of the back and beat the press from opposition teams.

This season, we have seen Arsenal and Manchester City give goals away while trying to play out of the back.

Jorginho admits playing out of the back is risky but he insists it’s a risk worth taking because if you get through the first line of defence, there is more space to play as you progress up the pitch, increasing the chances of creating a scoring opportunity.

“It is still a risk worth taking,” Jorginho told The Athletic.

“When you emerge from that pressure, with one or two passes the whole pitch can open up for you. You just have to have the confidence in yourself.”
