Thomas Tuchel has no preference for how Jorginho takes his penalties after the Chelsea midfielder has scored two goals in as many games.
The 29-year-old Jorginho scored in the game on Sunday Chelsea’s 2-1 win over Sheffield United gave Tuchel his third straight win to blame for the blues.
Chelsea are unbeaten in all four of Tuchel’s opening games, and a penalty has been the deciding goal in their last two games.
It was Jorginho’s responsibility to put it on the web, and he did it – against Tottenham and most recently Sheffield United.
At Spurs, he opted for a direct shot past Hugo Lloris before reverting to his usual “hop, skip and a jump” technique that sent Aaron Ramsdale the wrong way.

When asked about his preference for style, Tuchel doesn’t mind as long as it’s in the back of the network.
“I like them both because they are both online. I will never tell a player how to score a penalty. I will never give this advice because I played football at a lower level and you can feel the pressure, when the ball is. ” lie on the spot.
“No advice to me, Jorgi can take the punishments, but helps him score. I was glad he took them because both were crucial.”
