After an outstanding performance in Chelsea’s pre-season win against Brighton, manager Mauricio Pochettino has stated that new attacker Nicolas Jackson needs time to adjust to the Premier League.
The 22-year-old scored once and assisted twice as the Blues rallied to win 4-3. Nicolas Jackson, who joined Chelsea from Villarreal in June, is expected to make an immediate impact.
Excitement about Jackson’s Potential
Pochettino highlighted his optimism about Jackson’s potential, adding,
“I think when Chelsea signs a player like him, it’s because they detect something important in quality and talent.
He is a gifted player, but he will need time to adjust to his new team and the Premier League. He’s young, and we need to help him grow into a significant player for Chelsea.”
Outstanding Pre-Season Performance
Jackson’s goal and assists in the win over Brighton demonstrated his talent on the field. Last season, he scored 13 goals in 38 appearances for Villarreal, including nine in their final eight league games.

Nicolas Jackson’s involvement in pre-season games, as well as the chance to firsthand experience the Premier League, will be essential for his acclimatization to the intensity and style of play.
Making Friends with Nkunku
Pochettino is also interested in Christopher Nkunku, who joined Chelsea from RB Leipzig last month for £52 million. During the preseason, Nkunku and Jackson swapped in the number nine position.
“Certainly, we will arrive in the next few games at the possibility of playing them together,” Pochettino said. Because of their physical condition, we must employ both to divide the minutes.”
