Chelsea boss, Mauricio Pochettino has said that forward, Nicolas Jackson is ‘very anxious’ to score a goal.
Jackson joined Chelsea in the summer from Villarreal for £32m and much pressure has been put on the 22-year-old’s shoulders to deliver goals for the Blues.

Chelsea will face Premier League rivals Fulham on Monday night and Jackson is unavailable for selection after picking up five yellow cards already this season.
“We talk a lot between the players and us, the coaching staff,” Pochettino said during his pre-match press conference on Friday ahead of Chelsea’s clash with Fulham.
“It is things you cannot stop. He is very anxious to score and do well, so sometimes you forget things.
“He is growing fast. Now we are going to miss him on Monday but after the goal he scored against Brighton [in the Carabao Cup], I hope his confidence will be better.”
