Jorginho returned to Chelsea's starting lineup in the UEFA Champions League tonight when the Blues hosted Malmo at Stamford Bridge Stadium. The Italian International was in superb form today, guiding Chelsea to a 4-0 victory over Malmo at the end of the game.
Chelsea seized the lead after just 9 minutes of play in the first half when Ander Christensen scored with a powerful strike to put the score 1-0. Chelsea extended their lead in the 21st minute of the game when Jorginho converted an easy penalty to put the Blues 2-0 up at halftime.
Kai Havertz entered the fray in the 48th minute of the encounter, extending Chelsea's lead to 3-0 in favor of the Blues. Jorginho sealed the deal in the 57th minute of the game, scoring another penalty to make the final score 4-0 in Chelsea's favor.
Jorginho was undoubtedly Chelsea's best player in today's encounter, putting in a stellar display against Malmo. The Italian midfielder scored two goals in the contest while excelling in his central midfield role. After an outstanding performance against the Swedish team, the 29-year-old was named Man of the Match.
