Former Arsenal star Sol Campbell has hit out at the club’s midfielder Jorginho after Mikel Arteta’s side were held to a 2-2 draw in Sunday’s North London derby against Tottenham Hotspur.
Jorginho came in as a substitute at half-time after Declan Rice was forced off with a suspected left calf injury.
The scoreline was at 1-1 when the Italy midfielder entered the pitch, thanks to Cristian Romero’s own goal and Son Heung-min’s strike.
Arsenal managed to score a leading goal through Bukayo Saka’s second-half penalty.
However, a minute later, Jorginho made a big error that cost Chelsea all three points.
The former Chelsea midfielder was dallied on the ball and was dispossessed by Tottenham’s James Maddison, who passed the ball to Son for a simple finish past Arsenal goalkeeper David Raya.
Speaking about Jorginho’s error, Campbell told Premier League Productions that the 31-year-old was not playing his game.
Campbell said: “He’s not playing his game. He’s usually getting the ball and moving it quickly—that is his game. He had a chance to pass to Ben White out wide. He was scanning and scanning, and he just got in a muddle and they nicked the ball from him. So many goals are scored in the first five minutes after your opponents score. You have to be aware.”
