Jorginho broke the passing record: 180!

In the game against Westham, the new Chelsea's signing broke the passing record since 2003... with 90% accuracy.

That's impressive.

Actually, I see a problematic 3 mids issue that Sarri would have to solve. They kinda overlap each other (3 including Kante and Kovacic). What do you think?

I think the midfield is okay despite some overlaps. the centre forward position is more worrying tho, morata again. would be interesting if sarri is planning for a false 9 like mertens?

Don't see that as a problem, but rather, blessing.

Jorginho, Kante and Kovacic in CM should be wet dream for any manager, and out of all people, it's Sarri who gets to have it.

Not entirely sure about Kovacic, but I think Kante and Jorg can both be deployed as DMs too. Chelsea's squad overall is already deadly as we speak.

This has nothing to do about the match or result, it's a personal record. Nowadays players that are paid 150k-400k a week can't even get one pass right and often cost them to concede. so for a new player that is settling at a new club playing an away match it's impressive. Also against Newcastle he completed more passes than the whole team put together.

The draw isn't because of many passes it's because of 10 defenders and unlucky moments when we break them and a superb goalkeeping. Hazard should start being selfish and take the shots because we can't just depend on Morata cuz it's either he miss or just so unlucky, Morata could have had 2 goals when he came on.

9 like mertens?

Mertens would be good.

It is good if they can do something about it to use this stat to go out and buy a proven goal scorer.

I agree with Nanda despite not seeing a Chelsea game lately, will do probably this weeknd. but yeah if its bunch of Horinzontal passes or backward ones, it doesnt give much information about how he really played.
Can someone add the passing map, or chance creating, through passes to the equation ? so we can judge more objectively...

90% pass complention is impressive, thats Xavi/Modric average on a season...
