Fabregas admits Jorginho is struggling

Chelsea’s Cesc Fabregas has admitted that his fellow midfielder Jorginho is struggling to adapt to being a marked man in the Premier League.

Upon his arrival at Chelsea this summer, Jorginho was receiving rave reviews as the Italian dominated the ball and was the starting point for the Blues attacks.

However, in recent weeks Manchester United, Everton and Spurs have done a man-marking job on the former Napoli midfielder, nullifying his influence on the game.

With Chelsea in action against their former manager Claudio Ranieri this weekend as he brings his Fulham side down the Kings Road to Stamford Bridge, Cesc Fabregas has revealed that his teammate is struggling to adapt to being targeted.

“It’s been difficult for him (Jorginho) because opponents know how to defend against this,” Fabregas told the press after his sides Europa League victory over POAK.

“If you want to put in a man-marking player, this is the easiest player to mark.

“Maybe whether he plays, or I play, sometimes we have to find a solution, new movement, be quicker with the ball.

“We know what we have to do, we know what the coach wants from us, we just have to keep going.”
