Willian says Jorginho and Kovacic are Chelsea's best players in training

- Willian has named Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic as Chelsea’s best players in training this season

- Chelsea have bagged six points this season after winning both of their opening matches

- Willian was earlier tipped to quit the Blues this summer before opting to stay

Chelsea star winger Willian has singled out new-signings Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic as the club's stand-out players during training this season.

Speaking during an exclusive interview, the Brazilian star told Chelsea's official website that the duo have been impressive thus far.

"Everyone has been training well but I would say Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic have been very good," Willian observed.
"They both bring a lot of quality to the team," he added.

On his part, Jorginho’s agent, Joao Santos, revealed earlier this week that the Italian player is adapting well to life in the English Premier League.

"Jorginho has started his adventure at Chelsea very well. He’s already integrated himself, plus he also speaks English well, so he’s not having any problems settling," Radio CRC quoted Santos.
"When a player is good, he can play in any League. Stereotypes matter little. If a player has quality, they can make the grade anywhere," he added.

Jorginho joined the Blues during the summer transfer window in a £57 million move to become Maurizio Sarri's first signing as Chelsea boss.

The Brazilian-born Italy international joined the Stamford Bridge outfit from Napoli and has helped the London club bag back-to-back victories in their EPL opening fixtures.

Meanwhile, Kovacic, who is yet to start for the Blues as he works his way back to full fitness completed a season-long loan from Real Madrid in a stunning deal that saw Thibaut Courtouis move to the Santiago Bernabeu.
