Jorginho limps off injured after poor performance

Jorginho has been substituted for Chelsea with less than an hour on the clock, and it appeared that he was injured as he went off.

He certainly was wincing and hobbling, it’s just not clear if it’s a knock or something more serious.

He had had a dire game, and it wouldn’t have been the impression he wanted to make on his new coach Graham Potter.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek will replace him in midfield, and in all honesty this team did need an injection of forward momentum in midfield, so we might have seen this change regardless.

When N’Golo Kante comes back from injury, it will be interesting to see which player in the midfield is replaced. Perhaps this injury will make up Potter’s mind for him in the midweek game against AC Milan in the days to come.

We will wait to see what the coach says about the issue after the game.
