Chelsea midfielder Jorginho has had his playing time cut short in the last four league games as his form has dropped a bit.

The 28-year-old has been benched twice in the last four games and has been subbed off when he started.

With only three spots available in the Chelsea midfield, Jorginho has admitted that there’s tough competition for places in the middle of the park.

“When you have players like this, it’s good for the team because it makes the level of the team higher,” Jorginho said.

“That’s so important because there is healthy competition between us.”

Meanwhile, ahead of the Tottenham clash, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has revealed that he has selection ahead with a full squad to choose from.

He said: “A lot of people are fit; we have decent numbers and a competitive squad – they are showing that in training. I have to choose what I feel is right.

“Off the back of a negative result last week and the edginess that brings, players are trying to push to show they want to play in this big game. It makes it difficult.

“But the rules are always the same: it’s what you do day in, day out that gets you back in that team. It’s not just every Saturday or every matchday, it’s every training session and how you are around the group.”
