This stat relating to Chelsea midfielder Jorginho shows just how fast Maurizio Sarri has managed to successfully implement his style of play at Stamford Bridge.
Jorginho has been one of the best signings of the season so far. The former Napoli midfielder has eased Sarri’s transition into life in the Premier League. He orchestrated Napoli’s midfield last season, and is doing the same this term in a Chelsea shirt.
He has had no problem adjusting to life in the Premier League, which is widely considered one of the most competitive, if not the most, in the world. The below stat proves it, tweeted out by Squawka after our win over Cardiff City.
The frightening thing is that Jorginho is only going to get better as he gets more Premier League experience under his belt. Pipping Manchester City to the post and getting this deal over the line is fast looking like a market masterstroke from the Blues.
Jorginho (509) is the first player to attempt over 500 passes in Europe's Top 5 League this season.
