'Master flop', 'just useless' - Chelsea fans shred Nicolas Jackson after display v Brentford

Chelsea fans have been slating Nicolas Jackson after his performance against Brentford on Saturday (28 October).

Jackson led the line for the Blues in the 1-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge and fans were not happy with what they saw.

The 22-year-old has scored two goals in eight appearances so far this term and was back in the starting line-up for the first time since the end of September but failed to make an impact on his return.

Chelsea paid around £30million for the attacker, who joined from Villarreal in the summer and put pent to paper on an eight-year deal with the London club.

But Blues supporters have been hugely underwhelmed by Jackson and in particular his display against the Bees.

One fan seemed to suggest Jackson “goes blind” when it is time to have a shot on goal.

Another had a more straightforward take on Jackson’s display.

One branded the Chelsea attacker a “master flop” and is impressed at how he has managed to convince everyone that he works hard.

Another likened Jackson to Romelu Lukaku in his final season with the Blues.

One fan claimed Jackson is “holding the team back” and can’t believe other fans think he is a good player.

Another supporter claimed Jackson can only score against teams with four points.

One fan called the forward “useless” and was hugely unimpressed with his workrate against Brentford.
