Jorginho is one of Chelsea's leaders and he has to play a leading role in this season due to the absence of Sterling, Mount and Havertz, the first two because they are playing in the World Cup and the German is resting after playing in this tournament. The 30-year-old Italian midfielder has scored three goals this season, two in the Premier League and one in the UEFA Champions League. He has not scored since October 22 against Manchester United;
