Chelsea midfielder Jorginho dictated play for Chelsea in the middle of the park against Leicester City as the Blues got a 3-0 victory away at the King Power Stadium.

However, the Italy international was forced off with a suspected hamstring injury during the closing stages of the game, as Thomas Tuchel decided to take him off for Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel played down Jorginho’s injury scare and revealed after the game that he is confident the midfielder will be available for Chelsea’s Champions League game against Juventus on Tuesday.

When asked if Jorginho is considered a doubt for his side’s next match, Tuchel told Chelsea TV: “I absolutely don’t think so because he said he feels like [it was] cramps.

“In the moment I would say absolutely no muscle injuries and for that, [he’s] no doubt for Tuesday.”
