Watch: Jorginho slammed as error gifts Arsenal win vs Chelsea

May 12, 2021 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
The Italian midfielder made a mess of an attempted back pass to hand the visitors the opportunity to go in front.

Arsenal were handed an unlikely lead in Wednesday night's clash with Chelsea following a calamity mistake from the host inside their own half. The Gunners assumed an advantageous position ahead of the half-time break, with Emile Smith Rowe opening the scoring thanks to Jorginho's error.

The encounter was of huge significance, with the two London clubs chasing respective spots in the UEFA Champions League and the Europa League. Having seen off Manchester City in the previous Premier League outing, Chelsea rotated their squad to accomodate a host of their fringe players ahead of the weekend's FA Cup final clash with Leicester City. However, the decision did not bode well for the hosts with Arsenal assuming a position of superiority due to a momentarily lapse in concentration on the part of one of the Blues' key men.

Not long after Kai Havertz had squandered a glorious 1-v-1 chance to put Thomas Tuchel's side ahead, Jorginho failed to lift his head before putting a pass the wrong way in an attempt to find Kepa Arrizabalaga. The Spanish goalkeeper managed to prevent the Italian's midfielder's misplaced attempt from crossing the goal-line but the rebound was pounced on by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who then set up Emile Smith Rowe for an simple. tap-in.
