Chelsea will be looking forward to bouncing back to winning ways after failing to win three straight games. Note that Chelsea will host Leeds United at Stanford Bridge on Saturday, and taking all three points is important for Chelsea’s English Premier League title challenge.
However, the Chelsea injury crisis is still a problem, and Thomas Tuchel has given an update on the situation. Kante, Kovacic, Chalobah, and Chilwell are unavailable, but Jorginho will feature. In Thomas Tuchel’s pre-match interview, he said, “Jorginho will play through pain,” just like he did against West Ham United. Well, this article will center on Tuchel’s statement and why it might be a mistake to play Jorginho through pain. Take a look!
Recall that against West Ham United, Jorginho had a poor game. He was dispossessed easily, and one of his errors led to a goal for West Ham. Well, this poor performance can be linked to the fact that Jorginho wasn’t 100% fit.
Therefore, Thomas Tuchel might be making the same mistake by saying Jorginho will be forced to play. By playing using Jorginho against Leeds United, means the Italian midfielder won’t give his 100% on the field of play, which isn’t good for the team.
Secondly, Jorginho might also suffer injury relapses if he continues to play through pain. Hence, using him against an energetic Leeds United side might be a mistake for Thomas Tuchel.
However, Tuchel should count on players like Saul Niguez, Mason Mount, and Ross Barkley to start in the midfield.
