Chelsea suffered a terrible defeat on the south coast on Wednesday when they were thrashed 4-0 by Bournemouth, and fans were left fuming at the performance of Jorginho.
The 27-year-old has picked up an almost equal amount of criticism and praise for his game this season, but fans were pretty much united after watching him pass his way into anonymity in the 4-0 defeat.
The midfielder signed for almost £52million from Napoli in the summer and there’s obviously a brilliant footballer in Jorginho, but the question lots of Chelsea fans are asking is does he fit the Chelsea team and does he work in the Premier League?
He didn’t last night and it’s becoming a big problem for Chelsea. He seems to break passing records almost every game, but where’s the end product?
One Chelsea fan summed it up well after last night’s game, saying “Serie A has never been EPL” and concluded that the Brazilian will cost Sarri his job.
Here are reactions to Jorginho’s display against Bournemouth:
Serie A has never been EPL never,Jorginho will cost u ur job just ask Conte abt bakayoko # wake up Sarri

Azpi only reacts occasionally, Rudiger is inconsistent so as Luiz, Alonso is shit, Jorginho a panic buy, Kovacic dustbin, Willian is a joke, Pedro waste, Barkley no comments, Hazard not serious, and to sum up Chelsea is a drowning club #CFC

If what we were playing last night and have been playing for most of the season – meaningless passing, no speed, no intent, and zero flexibility – is what #sarriball is, then Sarri should just pack his bags and leave my club. And he should take Jorginho with him. #CFC #BOUCHE

Quick fix for the issues, Drop Jorginho for Loftus cheek, play Kante in his preferred position, Give Hazard cover to roam, start Hudson-Odoi instead of Willian, play Emerson not Alonso, encourage the players to have a shot not try walk it in & get more crosses into the box!#CFC

Jorginho?? 31 games 1 goal 0 assist.
Kovacic?? 29 games 0 goals 2 assists.
This is the reason, plane and simple…
Its not working and hes (Sarri) not gonna change tactics to suit the great players we have… time for change..
Sad times.. 4everBlue

I’ve not wanted a manager gone so much since AVB. Do one Sarri. It’s been painful. Good luck & while you’re at it… take Jorginho with you. ???????? #CFC
