Jorginho has not taken long to make his mark in the Premier League.
It took him just one match to score his first goal and only two more to equal a PL record.
A touch is defined by Opta as the sum of all events where a player touches the ball, so controlling the ball and then passing it would be one touch.
Jorginho's total was the joint-most recorded in a PL match since such player records began in 2003/04.
Jorginho came close at St James' Park to another record held by a Man City player.
The Italian completed 158 out of 173 attempted passes, 27 more than the whole Newcastle side combined.
It fell just nine short of the most successful passes made by a player in a PL match, a feat that happened in a match against Chelsea.
The record belongs to Ilkay Gundogan, who found a team-mate 167 times in City's 1-0 win last season.
Jorginho's contribution also helped Chelsea complete more passes than ever before in a single PL fixture.
Only Man City have made more passes than Chelsea did on Sunday.
