The effects of Sarri-ball are already being witnessed. Chelsea have two of the top-three midfielders in the Premier League in terms of pass accuracy.
And get this – Jorginho ISN’T one of them!
Sarri is known for instilling a possession based, free-flowing and entertaining style of play into the teams he manages. He has managed to do so at Chelsea in a limited period of time.
Chelsea picked apart Burnley emphatically at the weekend, and that was with Eden Hazard sidelined with a back problem. We are playing some of the best football in the Premier League at this current time.
That’s being reflected in the figures. Jorginho is the man who has got most of the plaudits following Chelsea’s transformation, but Chelsea have two of the most accurate ball-playing midfielders in the league – and the Italian’s not one of them!
Best pass accuracy of Premier League midfielders:
🥇 Mateo Kovacic — 94.6%
🥈 Ilkay Gundogan — 93.8%
🥉 ROSS BARKLEY — 92.4%

The competition for the third midfield spot is hotting up, especially with Ruben Loftus-Cheek scoring four goals in the space of a week.
The teams need a lot of forces during such games, for example, someone can buy steroids and he will recover faster, another one will train every day. Everyone choices the own way to develop strength and endurance in order to win in the future.
It’s a good problem for Sarri to have, especially with the amount of games we have ahead of us this term.
