​Chelsea midfielder Jorginho relishing 'double six' alongside Kante, Kovacic

Chelsea midfielder Joringho says he is delighted with his on-field relationships with fellow midfielders N'Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic.

The Italian has often lined up as a "double-six" either alongside Kante or Kovacic, or both, for the Blues.

The role has been especially evident since manager Thomas Tuchel took over from Frank Lampard midseason.

Asked about his role in the team and his midfield teammates, he told the club's website: "I am enjoying it a lot and it's very good to play in this position for the team.

"I feel very comfortable in this role and when you have players around you like Kova and Kante, who have so much quality, it makes everything easy for you to do your job.

"I really enjoy the role. I think you need to do a lot of organising, making sure we know when to press and how to escape the opposition's attack and to always be focused on what is happening around you, looking for passes to start an attack quickly."
