Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino has backed Nicolas Jackson so far.
Chelsea signed a young talent, Nicolas Jackson in the summer but he failed to deliver. He has only scored one goal so far and was not the best player in the lineup.
Journalist Dean Jones admits that the Blues made a mistake by not signing another center-forward during the transfer window. Chelsea will look for another striker and the January transfer window can give them an answer.
The West London club is currently sitting in the bottom half of the table after winning just one of their opening five Premier League games.
Since arriving in the Premier League, the Senegal international managed to score just one goal and it came against a weak side, Luton Town.
Meanwhile, Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino has backed Nicolas Jackson and said, he has all the tools to become one of the greatest Premier League strikers.
“He came from a different league and to adapt to the Premier League is always difficult, but the quality is there. We don’t need to ask him to run, to press, to help the team in the phase when we have the ball. Because his quality is amazing in his feet and the capacity to run with the ball and link with the team and score goals. He’s going to score, it’s only a matter of time. No doubt, he could be one of the greatest strikers in the Premier League, with time.”
Jones has insisted to GIVEMESPORT that the Blues made an error by not signing another centre-forward in the summer months.
“I’ve said for a long time that Chelsea have made a mistake by only signing Nicolas Jackson in terms of a striker. I don’t believe that he is enough of a guarantee of goals that Chelsea need for this season. “And I’ve said it since the day he came through the door. He’s a good signing, but he’s not the answer and everything I’ve seen so far just proves that. Again, the narrative is still that he’s a good player, he’s good off the ball, he has nice touches and all of that is true, but he’s not scoring goals. “And while he’s getting in good areas, he’s still not converting the chances or the half chances and that’s a big problem.”
