It’s always interesting to see how players can drift in and out of favour, but it did look like Jorginho had fully established himself as one of the key starters under Thomas Tuchel.
The team had a nightmare today against Aston Villa so Jorginho wasn’t the only player on the pitch who had a shocker, but he did concede the penalty that effectively killed the game.
He’s an interesting player to watch because a lot of the good things that he can do aren’t immediately noticeable or flashy, so he won’t get a ton of credit when he does play well but it’s extra noticeable when he doesn’t have a good time.

The loss against Villa today meant that their top four hopes fell on Crystal Palace or Spurs doing them a favour, and it was Spurs who managed to produce a late comeback against Leicester which means Chelsea do limp towards UCL football next year.
It’s expected that there will be a sizeable turnover in the Chelsea squad this summer, and these fans want Jorginho to be one of the players who do move on.
Jorginho is so bad man. Get this stinker out my club

Sarri needs to be arrested for bringing Jorginho to Chelsea when he had Cesc.

Jorginho and Kovacic should be ashamed of themselves! Two senior members of our squad who have completed bottled it today! Neither deserve to start on Saturday. Absolutely shameless.
