Jorginho is set to come under renewed pressure at Chelsea after his surprising lack of effort was highlighted during the 6-0 defeat to Manchester City on Sunday.

Maurizio Sarri’s side were four goals behind after just 25 minutes at the Etihad Stadium before Sergio Aguero completed his hat-trick and Raheem Sterling scored his second of the game in the second half to secure a comfortable win for the Premier League champions.

After the match, Sarri admitted his players were punished for their mistakes, while the defeat has left Chelsea sixth in the table and a point behind Manchester United, who occupy fourth place.

For Jorginho, it was another tough afternoon for the Italian who has faced criticised for his performances at the base of Chelsea’s midfield.

The £57 million signing from Napoli has ousted N’Golo Kante from Chelsea’s engine room and Sarri’s midfield has not looked better off as a result.

And in the 74th minute during the defeat to City, Jorginho’s lack of defensive qualities and determination were exposed by Raheem Sterling, who sprinted with the ball through the middle of the pitch while the Italian was jogging back.

To make matters worse for Jorginho, both Mateo Kovacic and Antonio Rudiger were further away when they charged back towards Chelsea’s goal and ended up overtaking their Chelsea teammate.

And Chelsea fans were furious with Jorginho’s apparent lack of desire to chase back…
