Chelsea cruised to a much-needed home win over Brighton on Wednesday night – and many of the club’s supporters raved about midfielder Jorginho for his performance.
The Blues won 3-0 at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League and kept alive their hopes of finishing in the top four.
Maurizio Sarri’s team are up to fifth now in the table and are only behind fourth-placed Arsenal on goal difference.
Chelsea made several changes to the team, which included a first league start for teenage sensation Callum Hudson-Odoi.
Another returnee Olivier Giroud opened the scoring in the first-half with a goal and eased some nerves around Stamford Bridge.
Eden Hazard added a second with a stunning finish on the edge of the box, while midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek scored a third with a long-range effort into the top corner.
A selection of Chelsea fans singled out Jorginho for praise on social media, which is not something that has been too common this season.
The 27-year-old central midfielder helped control the ball from deeper areas and also provided some creative through balls too.
He’s considered a key player in Sarri’s system and has shown he can control games when he gets space.
Here are some of the Chelsea fans praising Jorginho for his contribution:

Is it just me or Jorginho is having the best game in the blue. Very positive but i believe it is helped with the fresh options he’s got. Calls for routine rotation. #CFC
