Chelsea fans adamant that Jorginho is ‘getting better’ after Fulham win

Jorginho has regularly been criticised during his first season in English football, but many Chelsea fans were out in support for him after his performance in the win over Fulham on Sunday.

The Blues recorded a 2-1 victory over their West London rivals at Stamford Bridge at the weekend.

Maurizio Sarri’s side are sixth in the Premier League table, but will jump up to fourth into a Champions League position if they win their game in hand.

Jorginho scored what turned out to be the winner against Fulham, as he stroked the ball into the top corner from outside the penalty area in brilliant fashion.

The 27-year-old netted his first goal from open play for the Blues and it signalled a real turn of good form from him in recent games.

He’s struggled to fully win over fans since he moved to Stamford Bridge from Napoli due to the fact some believe he doesn’t contribute enough going forward.

But the Italian central midfielder showed an eye for goal against Fulham and also demonstrated some attacking through balls that could have resulted in assists.

Sarri is going to persist with the deep-lying playmaker in his system and people won’t mind that if he can replicate the Fulham display more consistently.

Here are some of the Chelsea fans that were impressed by Jorginho’s latest performance:
