Jorginho is central to everything and acts as the pivot, holding court in a position between the centre-backs and attacking central midfielders - something rival teams have figured out and have addressed by sticking a man-marker on him, or having designated individuals mark him in a zonal system (if he's near the striker, the striker follows, if he's nearer the 10, the 10 follows).

Gary Lineker left Barcelona because Johan Cruyff used him on the wing, Pep Guardiola couldn't make use of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and now, with Maurizio Sarri questioning the technical ability of N'Golo Kante, we might have another high-profile example.

Sometimes certain styles of players don't suit the tactical needs of their manager.

Kante is one of the best players in world football and his World Cup medal and two Premier League titles should go someway to backing that statement up.

The defensive line is high to allow Chelsea to suffocate their opponents, counter-press near their opponent's goal, and chances are created via quick transitions and one-touch passes in the final third.

Sarri-ball is the name and 4-3-3 is the game.

Chelsea are always in a 4-3-3, built as a 4-1-2-3 with wide inside-forwards and overlapping full-backs.
