'My stomach hurts': Some Chelsea fans in hysterics after seeing Jorginho's Halloween costume

Chelsea supporters on social media were treated to Jorginho’s Halloween outfit, hours after he tricked Newcastle United in the Premier League.

Jorginho uploaded his version of Beetlejuice to Instagram, which could have easily been mistaken for a drunken version of the Joker.

Here’s how Blues fans reacted to the Italian’s admirable effort:

Ghostly good from Jorginho

Although the costume itself looked pretty scary, Jorginho’s performance against Newcastle was the opposite of a horror show.

He completely controlled the game from the very first to the very last whistle, dictating proceedings from his customary deeper role.

Newcastle’s players were mere zombies in comparison to the metronome midfielder.

The 29-year-old topped off a delightful individual display by converting Chelsea’s third from the penalty spot.

Spookily, Jorginho became the first man to score 10 consecutive top-flight goals as spot-kicks.

Goalkeepers must dread whenever the UEFA Men’s Player of the Year steps up from 12 yards.

Chelsea frightening

Chelsea have also been striking fear into every opponent they face at the minute.

Thomas Tuchel’s team are on a run of six straight victories, following their successive defeats at the hands of Juventus and Manchester City.

In that period, the Blues have scored 19 times and conceded just twice.

An achievement largely reached without Timo Werner or Romelu Lukaku leading the attack.

The Blues are top of the domestic table, towering above their fellow challengers.

They are still searching for supremacy in Europe this season, as Chelsea currently sit second behind Juve in their Champions League group.

A win against Malmo tomorrow night would potentially propel them to first place, but only if Zenit St Petersburg can hold off the Italian side.
