Chelsea midfielder Jorginho has been slammed on Twitter for his role in Chelsea’s 1-0 defeat to Arsenal on Wednesday night.

The Italy international almost put the ball in the back of his own net after 15 minutes, only for Emile Smith-Rowe to convert into an empty net after Kepa Arrizabalaga desperately clawed it away from goal.

Chelsea fans were unhappy with Jorginho for costing Chelsea points and directed their anger to the Italy international for his disastrous backpass.

“Jorginho hang your head in shame – that was terrible,” one supporter said.

Another commented: “Jorginho is having an awful game. Take him off for god sake.”

While a third suggested there was a trend, with: “We really save all our errors to bring it out against Arsenal.”

And a fourth added: “Hahaha what the f* was Jorginho doing there? “Kepa with a superhero effort to stop the OG and then Arsenal try their hardest to f* it up. Good old Chelsea, never boring.”

Jorginho had been in good form prior to his gaffe against the Gunners, playing a key part in Chelsea’s run to the Champions League final.
