Exactly!Most of them are overhit long balls. Its no wonder that he's ended up with no assists.
I can't imagine anyone watching that video and legitimately thinking 'yeah, he was creative!'.
He hit some hopeful long balls in which the defender/keeper was favourite 95% of the time or the person on the end of it had a crappy angle to deal with. Ok on one or two situations the attacker should do better but to consistently get assists you need to be putting the forward in situations where the odds favour him, Jorginho hasn't done that at all with those passes. They're hard to take down and get a shot off.
Blaming Chelsea's attackers is very convenient, but falls apart a bit when his midfield partners (not all of whom are creative at all) all out assisted him, despite the fact he played most of their games.
