Video: Jorginho The Distributor vs Arsenal

It was something of a surprise that Jorginho continued to anchor Chelsea’s three-man midfield despite N’Golo Kante’s return at Huddersfield last week and Maurizio Sarri stuck with that selection here with mixed results.

The advantages of having a deep-lying playmaker were shown in Pedro’s ninth-minute opener as Jorginho played a superb ball for Marcus Alonso to race in behind the Arsenal defence and set-up his Spanish team-mate.

However, his vulnerability out of possession was exposed as the Gunners revived their fortunes with a series of similar chances, getting to the byline and cutting the ball back into an area the £57million man had vacated.

Kante is a master at sensing danger in those situations – Sarri may have food for thought in whether to persevere with that deployment going forward.
