Chelsea midfielder Jorginho delighted with Kovacic partnership: We both know our intentions

Chelsea midfielder Jorginho has sung the praises of teammate Mateo Kovacic.

The pair have been instrumental in recent weeks, forming an almost telepathic relationship in deep areas of the pitch as they conspire to play out from the back and set attacks in motion.

Jorginho told chelseafc.com: "We are playing very well together.

"We know each other, we know our intentions and how we want to play. Even without looking at me, I know what he wants to do and he knows what I want to do as well because he understands football very well.

"It's quite easy to play with him and we're enjoying this moment because we both enjoy to play football and at the moment we are doing well. It's very important to have that good relationship and it comes from being in a good way off the pitch, which makes everything on the pitch more easy."
