The 2-0 loss now means that both Manchester United and Arsenal have now moved to within three points of Chelsea who are in the fourth spot in the league table.
After this humiliating defeat, the Stamford Bridge outfit is in utter chaos and many believe that Maurizio Sarri might not last until the end of the season.
And according to Daily Mail’s chief sports writer Martin Samuel, the biggest mistake that the Chelsea manager made was to build a team around Jorginho.
Jorginho arrived at Chelsea during the summer with a very big reputation and Sarri knowing him from his Napoli days, immediately made him the midfield fulcrum.
But Samuel believes that this is the biggest mistake that the Chelsea boss has made this season.
“The headline is ‘Sarriball is fantastic’ says bloke called Sarri,” he told the Sunday Supplement(as reported by Sky Sports).
“It doesn’t necessarily mean it’s fantastic for everybody. It isn’t fantastic for Kante or [Eden] Hazard.
“The guy it all has to rotate around is Jorginho, who doesn’t look good enough for that, certainly not in the Premier League.
“It seems to be a lot quicker than Serie A was for him. Arsenal swarmed around him yesterday. Sarri was basically saying ‘Arsenal wanted it more than us’ but their midfield was superb.
“They swarmed around Jorginho and they swarmed around Chelsea’s midfield. You’ve got Jorginho who, going into the game, the statistic was 1997 passes, creating 15 chances and zero assists.
“You can say the zero assists could be to do with players missing chances, but he’s not playing a killer pass – and if this is your playmaker he’s got to play the killer pass.”
Back in Italy, Jorginho was nicknamed the pass master but in the Premier League, all that aura seems to have fizzled out.
Now Chelsea seem to be struggling with Jorginho at the heart of their midfield more so since N’Golo Kante is being forced to play in a wider role.
