Latest update revealed what Nicolas Jackson did to Mateo Kovacic after Chelsea were given a penalty vs Man City yesterday; Find out more
Chelsea striker Nicolas Jackson is quickly becoming a bit of a fan favourite at Stamford Bridge.
Nicolas Jackson scored a hat-trick against Tottenham Hotspur last Monday before adding to that with another goal versus Manchester City over the weekend.
He also did not shy away when things got heated in the recent 4-4 draw at Stamford Bridge, with the 22-year-old seen telling Mateo Kovacic to shh in a video on X.
The moment came just after Chelsea were awarded a penalty for Ruben Dias’ foul on Armando Broja at the end of the game, which Cole Palmer calmly dispatched.
It was the fourth penalty Palmer put away for Chelsea this season, with his previous three coming against Tottenham, Arsenal and Burnley.
Nicolas Jackson turning things around at Chelsea
Jackson initially made quite a slow start to life at Stamford Bridge, but he has really turned things around in Chelsea’s last couple of outings.
To score four goals against City and Tottenham is really impressive.
Chelsea continue to be linked with strikers, including RB Leipzig’s Benjamin Sesko, but if Jackson can sustain this form, then there really will not be a reason for the club to go out and buy a new centre-forward.
Broja also showed his value, coming on to win the Blues’ penalty yesterday. If he can stay fit and continue to make an impact, it would be another reason for Chelsea not to sign a No.9 in January or next summer.
A lot could depend on what happens between now and the beginning of 2024. If Jackson is still scoring and Mauricio Pochettino‘s side are not far from the top four, then perhaps a centre-forward will not be bought. But if not, based on all of the rumours out there right now, then they will probably dip into the transfer market.
