The misfiring striker Nicolas Jackson of CHELSEA may soon start to be ignored by the team.

On Wednesday night, as Mauricio Pochettino’s team barely defeated Crystal Palace, the £30 million summer acquisition from Villarreal faltered once more.


Nicolas Jackson is having trouble staying in shape.


At Stamford Bridge, Jackson, 22, did put the ball in the net, but VAR called it out for offside.

However, it was Jackson—not the ball—that found its way into the net after Conor Gallagher’s accurate pass set up the Senegalese player for a wonderful opportunity in the second half.

Mario Melchiot, a Dutch defender who played for Chelsea from 2000 to 2004 with Didier Drogba and Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, was unimpressed.

“He is making it very, very hard for himself,” he stated in reference to Jackson.


“He lacks the mental composure that I believe a good striker should have, even though he has the strength and pace.

“He’s not an elderly man. There’s still time for him. His serenity is the one thing he needs to work on.

“If you look at the best attackers that ever played for Chelsea, I’ll give you an example: Hasselbaink and Drogba were composed during our time together.

If you didn’t give them the ball, they can occasionally get upset with you.

People will begin to ask themselves, “Should I give it to him or should I finish it myself?,” so he needs to get himself to that point.



Jackson has scored eight goals for Chelsea thus far, although three of those came against a nine-man Tottenham squad.

The player is also aware that his current club makes significant transfers.

Ivan Toney of Brentford will be available in a few days, and Chelsea, Arsenal, and Tottenham will compete for the England striker, whose January 16 ban for betting offenses ends.

Toney’s transfer to the Emirates Stadium rather than Stamford Bridge is anticipated to cost Brentford more than £100 million, but Melchiot would not hold it against him.


While Pochettino’s team is scuttling around in mid-table, the Gunners are putting together a title threat for the second consecutive year.

“We’re not going to see great football at Chelsea,” ESPN expert Melchiot stated. Palace never used to visit the Bridge with such assurance.

Noni Madueke hopes that his game-winning penalty against Palace will serve as Chelsea’s Cole Palmer moment.

The England Under-21 player Madueke scored Chelsea’s winning penalty kick in the 89th minute by remaining composed. Chelsea won 2-1.


In the match against Crystal Palace, Noni Madueke scored.


By deceiving Eberechi Eze into a foolish challenge that referee Michael Salisbury missed but not VAR, the substitute secured the victory on his own. Under Pochettino, penalties are up for grabs, and Palmer has distinguished himself this season by netting penalties.

The summer acquisition became a cult hero after scoring in the dying seconds to rescue a 4–4 tie with his former team, Manchester City, after holding off teammate Raheem Sterling to score one against Arsenal.


However, Palmer and Sterling were barred from playing Palace. Fringe man Madueke stood up, and he hopes that in crucial circumstances, Pochettino would see him as a reliable source.

In the Premier League, Poch has only started Madueke once thus far, in a 2-0 loss at home against Brentford.

The £35 million January acquisition from PSV Eindhoven stated: “I thought I’d take it because I’m confident with pens and we don’t have a designated taker.” Congratulate yourself, grab the pen, and score without any issues!


You’re attempting to unwind. There is anarchy all around you. After he handed it to me, I simply followed my usual procedure and tucked it away.

“I’m confident that will lead to more game-starting opportunities down the road. I am aware of my abilities.
