Advertisement Emmanuel Petit highlights the one area that Jorginho must improve in to succeed at Chelsea Advertisement Jorginho’s recent form has been criticised (Getty Images)Emmanuel Petit has urged Jorginho to increase the tempo of his passing if he is to succeed for Chelsea in the Premier League.Jorginho was Chelsea’s marquee signing last summer, arriving in a £50m deal from Napoli shortly after Maurizio Sarri had been appointed as Antonio Conte’s successor.The 27-year-old enjoyed a solid start to his Chelsea career but his role in the team and his recent performances have been heavily criticised by pundits and Chelsea supporters alike following a downturn in results.Jorginho had another difficult afternoon on Sunday as Chelsea were thrashed 6-0 by Manchester City and Petit feels that the Italian international has to adapt to the speed of English football soon.AdvertisementAdvertisement‘I have nothing against Jorginho, I think he is a beautiful player. But this is the Premier League, this is not Serie A. You don’t play in Italy the same way you play in England,’ Petit told Paddy Power.‘In Italy you have more time when you play, more time to manage the ball and they do it beautifully, no doubt.‘But in the Premier League when you play as a holding midfielder you only have two, three seconds to think. You have to see before even receiving the ball. You have to play quick, fast.‘Even at Manchester City, Fernandinho doesn’t get much time to control the ball. He knows he has to have speed in his game all the time. Physically you need to respond to the demands of the Premier League.‘I’m far from being convinced about Jorginho on both things that I’ve said. I think he’s got very interesting technical qualities, he’s got very beautiful vision, but he needs to speed up.’More: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man CityManchester City defender Aymeric Laporte is the only player in the Premier League to complete more passes than Jorginho this season but the Chelsea midfielder remains without a single assist.Perhaps unfairly, his association with Sarri who coached him at Napoli before bringing him to Stamford Bridge, has been seized upon by his critics who feel that he will be selected regardless of the quality of his performances.Sarri has also come in for criticism for deploying Jorginho at the base of Chelsea’s midfield with N’Golo Kante forced into a more advanced role away from his customary defensive position.Following a promising start under Sarri, Chelsea have endured a poor run of results, losing each of their last three away Premier League games to Arsenal, Bournemouth and City by an aggregate scoreline of 12-0.More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?

His son was reportedly not injured. He was booked on a $1,000 secured bond at the Cabarrus County Jail. According to the North Carolina High School Athletic Association, the referee had just gave the hand signals to call the student’s move illegal. Kannapolis police said Jones was charged with simple assault and disorderly conduct. Some however shunned the temptation to blame Jones for acting on impulse noting that no man would stand and see his son being injured in the name of school wrestling, especially when they are non-professionals who have been taught to follow rules to the letter.

MORE: Full betting preview for Vikings vs. CowboysThose who are picking the Cowboys to beat the Vikings (like Sporting News) likely are pointing to the more trustworthy quarterback. Dak Prescott has posted a passer rating of 100 or better in six of seven career games against NFC North opponents and generally plays well in prime time. Kirk Cousins, though he has played well on the road of late, generally struggles in these national TV games.Also in the spotlight Sunday night will be the running backs. The Vikings’ Dalvin Cook has seven games with 100 or more scrimmage yards in 2019, the most in NFL. The Cowboys’ Ezekiel Elliott has 24 games with 100 or more rushing yards since 2016, the most in NFL. Below is all the info you need to watch Cowboys vs. Vikings on Sunday night, including the TV channels and kickoff time.Who plays on Sunday Night Football tonight?Matchup: Minnesota Vikings at Dallas CowboysKickoff time: 8:20 p.m. ETIn both our Week 10 NFL picks against the spread and straight-up predictions, Sporting News projected a Cowboys victory Sunday night. Below are the explanations.Pick against the spread: The Cowboys are a great home team in big games. The Vikings are a bad road team in big games. Dallas is coming off a short week, but Minnesota might run into the same defensive problems it had in Kansas City, only with a few more offensive limitations around Kirk Cousins. Dak Prescott will succeed stretching the field, and Ezekiel Elliott will help with several chunk runs. Cousins will succumb to the Cowboys’ pass rush and coverage in crunch time. Pick: Cowboys win 31-20 and cover the spread.Straight-up prediction: In theory, this game between two NFC contenders should be close, which is bad news for the team that has a quarterback with an 0-10-1 record when trailing in the fourth quarter with his current squad. That’s Kirk Cousins, who has earned his reputation as a player who wilts in big, prime-time games. A Sunday night in Dallas, a spot in which Dak Prescott typically thrives, certainly qualifies. With both teams facing stingy defenses, the Cowboys will make more big plays. Prediction: Cowboys 28, Vikings 24.MORE: NFL TV coverage map for Week 10What channel is Sunday Night Football on?TV channel (national): NBCTV channel (Dallas): KXASTV channel (Minneapolis): KARELive stream : NBC Sports App, NBCSports.comAs is the case for all “Sunday Night Football” games on NBC this season, Al Michaels will call the Cowboys vs. Vikings play-by-play action, and Cris Collinsworth will provide analysis.
