The former Chelsea striker believes Pochettino must be wise to avoid any little mistake which he believes could ruin the progress made at Chelsea so far

Chelsea have settled properly with their new project and with their current striker; Nicolas Jackson scoring 4 times in the last 2 matches, the side is sure becoming what they used to be when they had Didier Drogba leading the attacking line.

Following a rough start since the American takeover, Chelsea have managed to find their way back to what appears to be glory days once again. Nothing explains this more than their ability to claim 4 points in same week of battling the two top teams in the Premier League this season.

Nicolas Jackson found the back of the net three times against Tottenham as Chelsea came from behind to beat the North Londoners 1-4 in their London Derby clash.

The Senegalese added spice to his recent form by heading into the international break with 1 more goals he booked against Manchester City when Blues shared spoils with the Cityzens.

The general backroom believe is that Jackson has become very confident and liked by the club backroom staff team and more likely to continue his current form. However, with the availability of Osimhen in the transfer market, rumors have suggested Chelsea may be deciding on turning towards the Nigerian striker at the expense of Jackson.

Meanwhile for Chelsea Legend, Didier Drogba, sticking with Jackson could prove more fruitful than trying out Osimhen considering the current energy in the Chelsea team.

Speaking at an event today, Drogba said; “We all know the start for Jackson, for Chelsea and for many of their players too wasn’t really easy, it’s normal,” Drogba said.

“This kind of thing is normal in every football team, for every club, it’s normal that a player comes and struggles during the first few weeks to months, even Hazard struggled at Chelsea too, Salah too. It’s not strange for a player to struggle at first.

“But you also have to understand and trust them when they finally make it out of this phase, when they start doing what they did in the former clubs then you have to start trusting them the more which is why I don’t think bringing another striker to Chelsea is very wise now.

“For competition, squad depth or whatever, I don’t think it’s wise because the manager has to be very careful so the team can maintain and continue to ride on this energy. The team is very talented and I am sure they have a lot to offer.”

Chelsea will lock horns with Newcastle United who have of lately been struggling to maintain their results following an injury spell.
