Chelsea boss, Thomas Tuchel, has said that he predicted that midfielder Jorginho would suffer a dip in form due to his lack of rest.

 

Jorginho is currently sidelined due to a back injury he sustained during the Premier League game against Watford.

 

The Brazilian born Italy international made two mistakes in the space of a week, giving the ball away for Jadon Sancho’s goal in the 1-1 draw with Manchester United and under-hit a back-pass to Edouard Mendy which led West Ham’s equaliser in their 3-2 defeat to West Ham at the London Stadium on Saturday.

 

And his German boss revealed that the Euro2020 winner has been hampered by a back problem in recent weeks.

 

The former Borussia Dortmund manager believes Jorginho’s dip in freshness is because the player has not had time to rest.

 

“If you see Jorginho making a mistake like this…it’s more a technical, decision-making problem,” Tuchel told the press on Tuesday.

 

“And this also refers to mental and physical fatigue. If you see now that Jorginho is out with back pain you know he played with back pain against West Ham.

 

“Especially with Jorgi, he comes from the Euros and the Champions League, he comes straight away with no pre-season to the Super Cup final. We knew that in some weeks he will face a dip in freshness, a dip in form.”

 

 

Chelsea will this evening tackle Zenit St Petersburg in the last group stage game of the Champions League and will definitely miss Jorginho.
