Revealed: why Jackson isn’t performing for Chelsea

Pundit explains why Jackson isn’t performing for Chelsea

ESPN pundit, Shaka Hislop has expressed disappointment in Chelsea striker, Nicolas Jackson.

Jackson is still struggling to adapt to life in England, following his £32m transfer from Villarreal over the summer.

The 22-year-old has netted just three times in 12 games this season, with two coming in the Premier League, and one from the League Cup.

Jackson impressed during pre-season, when he seemed to strike up a great partnership with Christopher Nkunku. The Frenchman has however been unavailable to play due to injury, and Hislop believes this could be part of why Jackson is struggling.

The former goalkeeper told ESPN: “You can see better patterns of play, them trying to get the ball wide. I think it all comes crashing down because they don’t have that finisher. Jackson just isn’t the player that I thought he would be… I thought somebody like Christopher Nkunku would get the best out of him, but then Nkunku goes down injured.”
