In the wake of the victory, James spoke about the team’s rapid reaction to conceding an equaliser in the second half, about Timo Werner’s influence and about Jorginho’s penalty, which proved to be his second winning goal by that method in the space of four days. It was also a return closer to his previous technique than the one at Tottenham, which in the wake of three earlier misses this season was taken in a very different and more conventional style.
‘He [Jorginho] works very hard and practises a lot and that is showing in games,’ the right wing-back said on the midfielder’s spot-kick success, before moving on to Timo Werner’s impact on the game.
‘His time is coming. He is working very hard and he was involved in two goals so it is not like he is not contributing. Two of his contributions helped get the win.
