Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta has refused to criticise substitute, Jorginho for his mistake that ultimately cost the team in the 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.
Jorginho came on to replace Declan Rice at the start of the second half with the score at 1-1.
But after Bukayo Saka’s penalty put the Gunners up, the former Chelsea midfielder was robbed by James Maddison, who teed up Heung-Min Son to make it 2-2.
Arteta, when asked about Jorginho after the game, said: “I love him and we all love him. Errors are a part of football.
“They are allowed to make errors because they play. He is someone who helps the team. We all love him and are with him.”
Arteta also admitted Spurs’ equaliser affected them emotionally in their attempts to find a third goal.
