Chelsea midfielder Jorginho blasted the ball into the net from the penalty spot against Tottenham Hotspur but returned to his unique ‘hop and then shoot’ approach against Sheffield United.

Asked which of the Jorginho penalty approach he prefers, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel replied: “I like them both because they are both in the net.

“I will never tell a player how to take a penalty. I will never give that advice because I have played football at a lower level and you can feel the pressure when the ball is lying on the spot.

“No advice for me, Jorgi can take the penalties however helps him score. I was happy he took them because they were both decisive.”
