Jorginho was the target for Chelsea fans last season who were unimpressed with the style of play under Maurizio Sarri.

From being the scapegoat last season, Jorginho has now become the darling of Chelsea fans due to his impressive performances for Chelsea this season under Frank Lampard.

Jorginho is now seen as the best midfielder in the Premier League and there are stats to back this claim.

Jorginho has made 765 accurate passes in the Premier League this season more than any other player. 398 of these accurate passes have been in the opposition half and he ranks second in accurate passes made in opposition half.

Jorginho averages 69.5 passes per game, more than any other midfielder in the Premier League. He has a total of 12 successful through balls, more than any other player in the Premier League.

Jorginho also tops the table for ball recoveries (108), and possession won in the opposition half (58). He is third for possession won in the final third (12).
