Sarri insists Chelsea can win when Jorginho marked out of game

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is adamant his system can work even if Jorginho is marked out of the game.

Sarri admits there'll be the need to adapt should opposition teams look to mark Jorginho out of the game. Discussing the importance of the midfielder to his style of play in comparison to Manchester City's Fernandinho, he said: "They are able to play if you can stop Fernandinho and I think we are able to play also if you stop Jorginho.

"We have options. Maybe they have more options than us because they have worked on this for three seasons, but I remember in Naples it wasn't a big problem if there was a man on Jorginho, so I hope it will be the same here in the future."

The Italian also admitted he has been carefully considering all his options in attack for this key fixture.

"Of course, we have another striker, but we can make other decisions and maybe we will play with a false nine,' he said. 'I have to decide, the situation is not unlike in the other matches."
