Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has often rotated his midfield around four midfielders – Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic, Mason Mount and N’Golo Kante.

Kovacic is having a wonderful season for Chelsea and has hailed his partnership with Jorginho. The Croatian international has also hailed Kante for the work he does in midfield.

Speaking of his understanding with Jorginho, Kovacic said: “We try and communicate with each other and know where each other is.

“When I come a little bit deeper, Jorgi goes a little bit more up. In this position we change quite a lot and we like to do one-twos.

“I like to have the game in front of me, but sometimes I try to be on the same line as him, so with one pass I can break past him. That’s why sometimes when we play as a two, we can play a forward pass to break the lines.”

Kovacic also hailed the importance of N’Golo Kante to the midfield as he does the dirty work most times.

“We have to mention N’Golo because he is one of the best defensive midfielders in the world, and he is helping us a lot,” said Kovacic.

“His ability to run and to take the ball from the opposition is amazing. It’s a quality we need in this team. We have a lot of midfielders, a lot of quality in this position, and the season is long so we can change a lot.”
