Jorginho has yet to play a single minute for Chelsea since the restart, and he’s missed out on the starting lineup once again tonight.
The Italy international had a ban in the first game against Aston Villa, but since its expiry he still hasn’t featured.
If it was ever going to happen it was going to be today. The Blues looked shaky in midfield against West Ham in the week and threw away a 1-0 lead to lose 3-2, and Frank Lampard seemed likely to shake things up in the middle.
But he still hasn’t used the former Napoli man, and that’s leading plenty to speculation that this could be the final straw. There are too many midfielders on our books already, and one at least will have to go.
The sense from the supporters online is that Jorginho could now be the odd one out.

Kovacic is injured, Jorginho may not fit the plan

Is Jorginho hurt?

I'm honestly starting to ponder what's happening between Lampard and Jorginho because this is becoming very strange as to why he's not chosen to start or even come off the bench.

Honestly why isn’t Jorginho not getting minutes? Today’s game is one which suits him. He offers more than Barkley.
