Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette has been slammed by Garth Crooks for trying to get Jorginho sent off during Chelsea’s 2-1 victory over Arsenal.

Crooks told BBC: “The debate will centre around whether Jorginho should have remained on the pitch after he appeared to pull the shirt of Lucas Torreira which could have resulted in a second yellow card.

“Referee Craig Pawson refused to send Jorginho off and gave a free-kick, much to the annoyance of Alexandre Lacazette.

“To see a player trying to get another professional sent off is a shameful spectacle and Pawson did well to book the Arsenal player for getting involved.

“Jorginho went on to dominate the midfield and score the goal that was the turning point in the game.”
