Chelsea midfielder Jorginho believes we deserved to beat Newcastle yesterday due to our desire and willingness to fight until the end.
The Blues extended our winning Premier League run to five games after a late winner from Kai Havertz and midfielder Jorginho, who skippered the Blues in Cesar Azpilicueta's absence, thinks it was a result that showed the character of the dressing room.
‘I thought we believed until the end and that is our group, it is our mentality. That is what we have been showing all the time now, we keep focussed, work hard and fight and push until the end. We deserved the win. It was a great result, atmosphere and great for the fans,’ the Italian said.
On Havertz, who netted the winner once again for Thomas Tuchel’s side, Jorgi spoke of his impressive attitude both on and off the pitch.
‘Kai is an amazing player and guy, who can make the difference for us,’ the Italian added. ‘We believe in him because you can see the quality he has and the potential that is there. He is a key player for this team and can make the difference like we saw.’
Jorgi was also asked about Tuchel’s changes towards the end of the game, which saw Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic utilises as our wing-backs, with Kai joined up top by Romelu Lukaku.
‘When you win it is the right decision. He will analyse and he will see what was right and what’s wrong. Sometimes you just need to bring the three points home.’
Despite the challenging period off the pitch for the club, Jorginho stated that he and his team-mates are remaining focussed on the football.
‘It is a good challenge to be honest because we’re all human and when there’s so much going around it is not easy. We try to isolate sometimes, we try to focus what we need to do because we are also professional as you could see we know our targets and we know what we’re here for. We’re fighting for that.’
