Why Chelsea fans turned on Jorginho vs Newcastle

Chelsea 2 – Newcastle 1

Chelsea beat Newcastle 2-1 at Stamford Bridge on Saturday in the Premier League.

Willian was the match-winner for the Blues in the second half with a superb curler into the far corner.

Ciaran Clark levelled for Newcastle from a corner in the 40th minute.

Pedro opened for the Blues after 9 minutes with a delightful lob from a David Luiz assist.

Why Chelsea fans turned on Jorginho

It was audible during the Chelsea vs Newcastle match.

Blues fans booed and groaned whenever Jorginho made a mistake against the Magpies.

Jorginho was targeted by his own supporters after making a series of errors when trying to pass the ball forward.

It a telling stat chalked up in the Newcastle game, Jorginho totted up his 2,000 pass of the season on Saturday.

The Italian is yet to register an assist in the team.

So while Jorginho is often on the ball, is he really contributing to Chelsea in any attacking sense?

Jorginho’s uninspiring performance when on the ball against Newcastle came in the same week that Cesc Fabregas left the club.
