STATS STUNNER: Jorginho (& Chelsea pals) dominant Premier League player

Chelsea midfielder Jorginho is proving the most dominant player in the Premier League.

The former Napoli star has hit the ground running, guiding the club to wins in each of his first four games in charge.

In his first four matches for the Blues - wherein he has played every minute - Jorginho has registered a whopping 465 touches.

That's the most in the Premier League so far, reports the Daily Star.

In fact, Chelsea make up half of the top 10.

Marcos Alonso - who has also enjoyed a terrific start to the new campaign - comes in at third behind Manchester City's Aymeric Laporte (407) on 403.

His fellow Spaniard Cesar Azpilicueta sits behind another Man City man Benjamin Mendy (401) on 398 touches.

David Luiz (380) and Antonio Rudiger (375), centre-back partners in every game of the Sarri era so far, are also in the top 10.

The other three top-flight players in the top 10 are Liverpool duo James Milner (395) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (369), as well as Fulham midfielder Jean Michael Seri (375).
