Willian’s four-word social media post that perfectly sums up Jorginho’s Chelsea influence
Willian has sent a social media message to fellow Chelsea midfielder Jorginho following the team’s 1-0 win over Newcastle United.
The Blues made it five wins in a row with the hard fought Premier League victory.
Marcos Alonso’s 73rd minute strike proved to be the difference between the two sides as Frank Lampard’s men moved up to fourth place in the Premier League table with 17 points from their opening nine games of the season.
Much emphasis has been put on Lampard’s use of young players this season, but the more experienced Jorginho has also made his presence felt both on and off the pitch this season.
The Italian international has started every Premier League game so far, scoring once and providing one assist.
Jorginho played the full 90 minutes of the win over Newcastle and posted on social media following the game, writing of his delight at picking up the three points.
“Great result … +3 keep pushing guys… thanks for your support today,” he posted on Instagram.
The post prompted a reply from teammate Willian, who also played the full 90 minutes of the match.
“Lets go, my captain,” the Brazilian wrote.
Jorginho was appointed as vice captain of Chelsea earlier in the season, behind defender Cesar Azpilicueta.
After a difficult first season at Stamford Bridge, under Maurizio Sarri, Jorginho has since kicked on and has proved himself to be an important part of Frank Lampard’s plans.
