Before the international break in November, Chelsea were flying high and playing perfect football as Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic formed a massive partnership in a double pivot role in the Chelsea midfield.
Prior to the final break of 2019, Chelsea’s form was so good that the Blues were being touted as potential Premier League title challengers alongside Liverpool and Manchester City.
