Chelsea fans dub Jorginho’s awful penalty "worst ever" and "sackable offence"

Chelsea fans dubbed Jorginho's comically bad penalty against West Ham as the "worst ever" and a "sackable offence."

The London derby between the two sides looked to be heading for a 0-0 draw until Craig Dawson fouled Romelu Lukaku with a few minutes remaining. Referee Michael Oliver had no hesitation in pointing to the spot and gave Dawson his marching orders.

Jorginho, usually ever-reliable from 12 yards, stepped up to take the penalty but got it all wrong as his powderpuff effort rolled into the grateful arms of Hammers goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski. Christian Pulisic saved the Italian's blushes with a last-gasp winner – but that penalty was all anyone could talk about on social media after the match.

One person wrote: "Jorginho with one of the worst penalties you will ever see. Literally a pass back. Like one I hit once in a five a side game while hungover in Bognor.:

Someone else said: "That’s arguably the worst penalty i’ve ever seen. He PASSED it to Fabianski. A third person didn't hold back and added: "Get out the f***ing club, sackable offence. Worst penalty ever, you stupid p****. I’m so angry. Embarrassing."

Is Jorginho's penalty the worst you have ever seen? Let us know in the comments section.

"Jorginho with the worst penalty I’ve ever seen this is easily one of the worst games I’ve ever half-watched," moaned someone else.

Another Twitter user commented: "Jorginho that is absolutely disgusting, that’s a disgrace, doing that at 0-0 to win you a vital three points, that’s unforgivable, it looks brilliant but when it goes wrong it’s an absolute shambles, dear me."

While someone else begged the club to terminate the 30-year-old's contract at Stamford Bridge, saying: "Do not renew his contract @ChelseaFC Jorginho is pathetic!!! Let him go to Italy!"

Jorginho's blushes were spared minutes later as substitute Pulisic popped up with an injury time winner to give Thomas Tuchel's side all three points.

The Blues extended the gap to Arsenal in fourth to five points, while West Ham remain eight points behind the Gunners, who occupy the final Champions League spot.
