Sarri also explained what the player fulfilling that central role requires from the rest of the team in order for the team to tick, something he saw plenty of during a devastating attacking display from the Blues which saw us record our biggest win since the Italian's appointment last summer.
'He needs movement without the ball from other players,' added the former Napoli boss. 'He uses that to play one touch and it's difficult to do that without the movement of the other players. The team in the first 25 or 30 minutes played very well and we had movements without the ball, so for Jorginho it was easier.
'I think in the first 25 minutes we played our football, because we moved the ball very fast, because there was good movements without the ball. We were very dangerous. We attacked the spaces and we played our football.'
Having arrested a two-game losing streak in the league, we regained fourth spot from Arsenal, but Sarri knows there is still work to be done if we are to put together another good run of form.
'My target is to improve the mentality,' he said. 'If we are able to improve that, it will be easier to arrive at every match with the right level of application, of determination. It's not easy, of course, it's a long way, but we need to try to improve in mentality – in every training, every match.'
