A selection of Chelsea fans on Twitter provided their reaction to Jorginho’s defensive error, which contributed to the club’s 1-0 Premier League defeat to Arsenal.

The Gunners took the lead through Emile Smith Rowe in the 15th minute of the derby, and it came about from a poor back pass from Jorginho.

The Italian was hurried into a back pass with the high pressing from the Gunners, but he did not spot Kepa Arrizabalaga out of position.

Arrizabalaga scrambled to save the ball on the line, but Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang quickly got to the rebound and teed up Smith Rowe to convert into an empty net.

It happened to be the only goal of the contest, with the Blues failing to test the Gunners goalkeeper sufficiently with just five of their 19 shots on target.

Jorginho was largely at fault for the derby defeat, but some of the club’s faithful refused to blame him, citing his consistent displays under Thomas Tuchel this year.

Jorginho, who is currently on £110,000-a-week, has been one of the most consistent performers since Tuchel took charge of the club in January.

The Italian has produced several stand-out displays, particularly in the Champions League, where he has regularly partnered N’Golo Kante.

He had an off-day against the Gunners last night and will hope to make amends in the FA Cup final against Leicester on Saturday.

The Blues are aiming to win the famous old competition for the ninth time in their history.
