Jorginho has revealed how Chelsea's playstyle changed under Frank Lampard compared to last year's tactics under Maurizio Sarri.
"We are playing forward more and playing quicker as well," he told Chelsea FC official website.
"My role is not very different from last season but as a team, we are playing a different way, playing forward more basically, and not just with short passes. We run more and maybe we create more chances so that’s the difference.
"Frank lets us play more to our abilities and he wants us to play how we feel on the pitch. It’s not just ‘do this, do that’ so we have the freedom to do more by ourselves."

"It’s very important for us midfielders to score goals and Frank keeps asking us to get into the box," admitted Jorginho.
"He keeps pushing us to do that, which is a good thing for us and for the team because the more players that can score is better for our team."
