Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has admitted he is fortunate to have midfielder Jorghinho.

The Italian endured a tough first season at Chelsea but he had been an integral part of former boss Maurizio Sarri’s team.

Jorginho appears to have shaken off his stuttering start at Stamford Bridge and boss Lampard has lavished praise on the player.

Lampard told Sky Sports: “What I see in Jorginho is a quality of pass and I want to see him use his range.

“He played some great through-balls against Liverpool and I know he can do it. He can do what’s asked of him and he is eager to do it. I love his spirit, how he trains and how he plays. I keep going on about that but it’s infectious and it’s important.”
