Amid Nicolas Jackson criticism, Alan Shearer reveals message from Chelsea

Alan Shearer has revealed that Chelsea got in touch with him after he criticised Nicolas Jackson’s performance.

The Premier League’s all-time leading goalscorer described Jackson as ‘very raw’ and ‘unsure’ in front of goal following Chelsea’s 2-0 defeat to Brentford last month.

Jackson has since scored four goals in three appearances, which includes the hat-trick in the 4-1 win away to Tottenham last Monday.

Shearer has revealed that Chelsea agreed his analysis ‘was not over the top’ and believes Jackson has already shown signs of improvement since the loss to Brentford.

‘I mean the game just had everything from start to finish. It was entertaining and there were so many impressive performances, particularly from the guys in a Chelsea shirt. Jackson I agree, I was critical of his lack of movement a few weeks ago,’ Shearer said on The Rest Is Football podcast after Chelsea’s 4-4 draw with Manchester City on Sunday.

‘I got a text from Chelsea to say that they didn’t think it was over the top and that they have been working on one or two things in and around that.

‘He was a lot better today and full of confidence after what happened earlier in the week and that showed today.

‘It was a great game for everyone to watch. I think for the fans that is important to see those small steps. The coaching, we all know what Poch is like, he is a very good coach and he is the right man.

‘They are definitely improving and they seem to be understanding what he wants.’

Speaking after Chelsea’s defeat at home to Brentford last month, Shearer said of Jackson’s performance: ‘To be more prolific you have to get yourself into scoring positions.

‘There was a complete lack of movement from him [Jackson] today. He looks very raw and at times unsure what to do.

‘You’ve got to make defenders work. Goalscorers don’t hang around on the edge of the box like he does. It’s his job to get on the end of it.’
