Jorginho looks ahead to Chelsea's 'tough' test against Manchester United

Publish date:

Jorginho is aware of the challenge awaiting Chelsea on Sunday afternoon against Manchester United in the Premier League.

Chelsea host the Red Devils who are unbeaten in 19 games away from home, and are yet to lose on the road in the league this season.

For Thomas Tuchel's side, they also have an unbeaten record to keep in tact this weekend. They are yet to suffer defeat in the German's opening eight games in charge of the club. 

Jorginho has been ever-present in the side since Tuchel took over and knows it won't be easy for Chelsea when Manchester United make the trip to west London.

He said to the official Chelsea website: "Playing every game is very motivating, but when you have a big game like this it’s even more so. It will be a tough game, against a very hard opponent, it will not be easy.

"I think the best way is always to defend well because when you defend well and don’t concede, then you can create chances because of the qualities of the group. We need to keep defending very well and then try to score when we have a chance."

Tuchel's side can climb into the top four with a win against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men on Sunday and Jorginho complimented his impact since taking over last month. 

He added: "I’m very happy because the team is doing very well, working hard, trying to understand what the coach wants. I think it’s the right way to move forward.

"He understood the characteristics of the players and the way he wants to play is good for our characteristics. So he understood that and he’s trying to give us the advice and the right way to work and then the results are coming."
