Chelsea will enter the international break with great confidence after hammering Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon – and some of the fans on Twitter were raving about midfielder Jorginho for his performance.
The Blues beat London rivals Palace 4-0 at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League fixture and it was their best performance of the season so far.
Frank Lampard’s side went into half-time goalless after a first-half where Palace shut the door defensively, but it was a different story in the second period.
Ben Chilwell, who was starting a league game for Chelsea for the first time, broke the deadlock with a powerful left-footed finish inside the box.
Left-back Chilwell then turned provided with his cross for Kurt Zouma’s headed goal, before Jorginho scored twice from the penalty spot to add some gloss to the scoreline.
A selection of Chelsea supporters on social media were delighted with Jorginho for his weekend display and felt he ran the show from the centre of the pitch.
The 28-year-old Italian showed his class on the ball against Palace with a string of long-range passes, including a lofted through ball that forward Tammy Abraham may have done better with.
He showed his composure from the spot to score twice, but it was the central midfielder’s overall work that caught the eye.
Here are some Blues supporters discussing Jorginho:

Jorginho has been one of our best players, really helping to keep up momentum and yes – he does have a passing range. #CFC
