“For the first 15 or 20 minutes” – Jorginho finally reveals who to blame for Chelsea 3-0 defeat

On Sunday afternoon, Chelsea suffered a shocking 3-0 loss to Leeds United at Elland Road.

Thomas Tuchel’s team gave a far from impressive performance, and for a large portion of the contest, the football played lacked cohesiveness.

Jorginho said after the game that the club had a strong start before crumbling after Edouard Mendy’s goal.

“A really bad day. We started well in the first 15 or 20 minutes, then we got a bit frustrated from them scoring and we started doing stuff we weren’t supposed to. We got stuck.

“We conceded and then we lost our heads, which cannot happen here. We got punished,” Jorginho said following the defeat.

“We knew it was coming [Leeds’ intensity and high press]. We were creating a lot and following the plan, at the end we were not finishing the plan and then we started doing different stuff.

“We were playing some balls we don’t usually. If we had kept following the pan, and work our way out of pressure, maybe it would be a different story.”

Jorginho backed Mendy to come back strong, and also urged his teammates to move on.

Jorginho added: “We always try to improve and to help each other to push even more, unfortunately yesterday we couldn’t do it.

“We have to move on, always. These things can happen but it is about how we come back in the next game.”

Speaking on Mendy, he said: “Its not nice to see, especially a team-mate. Everyone has been there.

“He is strong and has a strong mentality. It’s time to move on.”
