In his first few months as a Chelsea player, 22-year-old Nicolas Jackson has been scrutinised.
Many remarks have been made regarding the young player’s inconsistent finishing near the penalty area. He has been Stamford Bridge’s primary striker thus far this season.
Hopefully, his hat-trick in the Premier League against Tottenham on Monday night would help calm any anxieties. By the way, the Senegalese international has six goals for Chelsea this season in all competitions.
Winger Raheem Sterling, 28, of the Chelsea blue Blues, has made some positive remarks about his clubmate.
He has stated that Jackson should demonstrate his true potential while in training.
Regarding the 22-year-old rookie, Sterling said to Stadium Astro: “I don’t think it’s on individuals to score goals; it’s a collective effort.” Individuals must, of course, seize their opportunities, but I believe that as a team, we must work to put ourselves in places that facilitate opportunity. We’ve seen him in training, so we know what he’s capable of. My goal is to position the ball to try and create. In my opinion, he only needs to keep doing what he is doing, which is giving his best, and the goals will come naturally.
Nicolas Jackson is unpredictable.
When you watch Jackson play football, there are moments of greatness, which is why the majority of his admirers are rooting for him to be successful.
The £32 million forward, according to The Guardian, still needs to improve greatly on all aspects of his game.
We believe he needs to sharpen his goal-scoring skills if he hopes to secure the starting job as Chelsea’s No. 9.
During his interview with Sky Sports on November 7, Gary Neville acknowledged that he would not have enjoyed playing against Jackson.
Expect to see players play much more freely as we think that Christopher Nkunku’s impending injury comeback will help relieve some of the pressure on Chelsea’s other forwards.
Jackson should feel somewhat confident going into this Sunday’s match at home against Manchester City following his hat-trick in the 4-1 victory over Spurs.
