Apart from the one time it was saved against Ederson he's sent the keeper the wrong way every time. If keepers were getting close id say he's playing with fire a bit but they ain't.
Coming up to games against us I am very certain opposition keepers are studying those penalties hard trying to suss out how he does it yet he keeps sending them for hot dogs.
He obviously has a method else he'd have been found out by now. Excluding any potential penalty shootouts for Napoli (as transfermarkt don't have data for shootouts) he's scored 20 and missed 2. Unless your names Matt Me Tisser that's a fantastic record.


He doesn't just play for Chelsea btw -


The style of PK isn't something he does all the time either. Sure he didn't do it in the Super Cup IIRC.

He put a bit more beef behind the second last night which is good to see. Not because I think there's anything wrong with his 'usual' style, but because extra variety keeps the keepers guessing.

I liked that too. The goalie probably would not have saved it even if he had gone the right way. This is critical as at some point a keeper will wait for Jorginho to make his mind up and then jump. Jorginho knows he thus has to strike the ball well enough to give a late jumper no chance. 

We have seen this before with Hazard and Müller taking pens, waiting for the keeper to pick a side and strike the ball blindly. If the goalie does not switch a side, they strike with power, usually to their left. Jorginho has developed a unique variation of that with this silly hop. Usually you would require a strong standing foot to make a shot but Jorginho still manages to generate some power, hopping into his shot. But what the hop does is buying him more time to look at the keeper while still being able to look down at the ball for a last moment.

Italy have already qualified for the Euros and Mancini still called up Jorginho (and Emerson)...

Given how much he's played this season, hopefully he doesn't play much against Bosnia and Armenia!

Captain material 

Wonder how long before the fans say Jorginho is a crap captain and fawn over the next flavor of the month...

Is that really a Sky Sports graphic? The font and image are completely off.

The midfielder’s passing game was a key part of our possession-based style last season, but under Lampard this term, he is one of the players flourishing in the new-found freedom the squad is enjoying on the pitch.

He has been one of the standout performers of 2019/20 so far and that freedom has allowed people to see just how much he can offer to the team in all areas, showing himself to be a complete midfielder. That has silenced plenty of his doubters, as well as earning him a strong appreciation from the Chelsea supporters, something which isn’t lost on the Italian international.

‘I absolutely have noticed that change. That’s why I’m so happy,’ he said. ‘I’m happy they are seeing me in a different light and they’re seeing the complete player that I am, so actually that’s really cool right now and it’s a really great moment to be playing.

‘It’s really rewarding because it’s great to be feeling acknowledged for the work you’re putting in, so I couldn’t be happier with things at the moment.

‘It’s just great that I can see the fans looking at who I am, Jorginho the player, and at the same time I’m really happy to look at them and see their reaction and feel their support.’

Part of his new role in the team has seen him step up to become one of the side’s most senior figures, despite only being in his second season in English football, with Lampard recognising Jorginho’s leadership qualities and making him our vice-captain in the summer.

‘I’m really enjoying it,’ he added. ‘I feel I’m able to take on this new sort of responsibility and really help my team-mates. That’s something new for me in my career, but it’s not something that’s changed for me as a person.

‘I don’t think it’s anything I’ve changed, it’s always been like that for me on the pitch and perhaps people are noticing it more, but for me it’s always been that way. When I’m out there I always want to help my team-mates.’
