Jorginho was spotted dishing out some choice words to his fellow Chelsea co-worker Ruben Loftus-Cheek during the draw with Everton yesterday.
football.london noticed the incident unfolding whilst the Blues huffed, puffed and failed to blow the Toffees down.
Quarter of an hour into the second half, Loftus-Cheek relinquished possession far too easily, allowing Everton a rare breakaway upfield.
Jorginho halted the counter by hacking down Jarrad Branthwaite and earning himself a yellow card.
In response to the booking, which could’ve been avoided, the Italian berated his English teammate for putting him in such a position.
Loftus-Cheek, 25, decided to turn the other cheek rather than retaliate; probably a wise move in the circumstance.
This scene pretty much summarised Chelsea’s night; frustrated, sloppy at times and void of much cohesion.
Chelsea coming to a stop
They played some slick football in the initial exchanges, but couldn’t find that definitive touch to put the game to rest.
The usually reliable duo of Reece James and Mason Mount squandered two glorious opportunities in the opening 45 minutes.
Admittedly, the latter’s close-range effort was excellently saved by Jordan Pickford, who had an evening to remember at Stamford Bridge.
Thomas Tuchel’s team slowed down after the interval, yet did eventually make the breakthrough thanks to Mount.
Pickford was finally beaten at his near post by a powerful drive from the England international, who has now scored in four consecutive league fixtures.
Joyful Everton ending
However, Everton summoned up some extra strength to try salvage a point and salvage a point they did.
Moments after conceding, Branthwaite found himself unmarked at the back-post from a freekick and finished with aplomb.
Rafa Benitez was certainly the happier manager at the full-time whistle, having disturbed his opposite number and his player’s all match.
Back to the drawing board for Tuchel, with a visit to Wolverhampton Wanderers looming large on the horizon, permitted it goes ahead.
