ESPN pundit claims Jude Bellingham would destroy £12m Arsenal player if they faced each other

,ESPN pundit Stuart Robson has claimed that Jorginho would have to be dropped if Arsenal face Jude Bellingham’s Real Madrid in the Champions League next.

The Italy international has been one of Arsenal’s best players recently. His quality on the ball and experience have been crucial for the Gunners, but Robson doesn’t believe he should start against a club like Real Madrid who have Bellingham.

ESPN pundit thinks Arsenal’s Jorginho would not be able to handle Jude Bellingham
Arsenal have been one of the best teams in the Premier League recently, but their only negative was the defeat in the Champions League against Porto.

The Gunners face the Portuguese giants in the second leg at the Emirates next week, and Mikel Arteta will be hoping to turn things around there.

,If Arsenal do make it into the next round of the Champions League, there is a chance they could be drawn against Spanish giants Real Madrid.

Stuart Robson believes Arsenal would beat the Galacticos if they were to face each other, but the pundit has suggested that Jorginho wouldn’t stand a chance against Jude Bellingham in midfield.

After claiming Arsenal would win against Real Madrid, Robson said on ESPN: “The one thing that Arteta would have to do, he can’t play Jorginho up against Bellingham

He’d have to bring Rice back to play against Bellingham. That would be a great battle.

“I wouldn’t fancy Jorginho against Bellingham.”

Jorginho deserves more praise
Jude Bellingham would perhaps fancy his chances of getting the better of Jorginho, but the Arsenal star is more than capable of holding his own.

The Italian has been outstanding for the Gunners in almost every game he has played since his £12 million (Sky Sports) move from Chelsea last year. In Arsenal’s big wins against Liverpool and Manchester City, he was integral. He really deserves more respect.

Having said that, if Arsenal do face Real Madrid and Jude Bellingham in the next stages of the Champions League, we expect Mikel Arteta to go with a midfield pairing of Declan Rice and Thomas Partey.

That’s not because Jorginho is not capable of facing Bellingham, but we just think Partey and Rice would be better suited to overpower Real Madrid’s incredible midfield.
