Breaking news”Match band” FA is ready to suspend Nicholas Jackson for 4 match band after he pick a fight against Everton player in the field immediately when the final whistle
An irate Nicolas Jackson had to be dragged away by Chelsea coaching staff as tempers boiled over in the aftermath of their 2-0 loss against Everton.
The Blues succumbed to another defeat against Sean Dyche ‘s side, who bagged all three points at Goodison Park courtesy of second-half goals from Abdoulaye Doucoure and substitute Lewis Dobbin.
But there was drama after the final whistle as Jackson became embroiled in a furious row. The Evening Standard highlighted the fact that Chelsea head coach Mauricio Pochettino even felt the need to step in and attempted to lead Jackson away in a bid to defuse the situation.
Jackson, who started the match on the bench but replaced Armando Broja in the 67th minute, was eventually led down the tunnel by one of Pochettino’s assistants despite his protestations.
Jackson’s post-match bust-up compounded a miserable day for Chelsea, who lost captain Reece James and first-choice goalkeeper Robert Sanchez to injury over the course of the afternoon.
Chelsea have now lost seven of their 16 Premier League games under Pochettino and have slipped into the bottom half of the table courtesy of Fulham ‘s thumping 5-0 win over West Ham.
Pochettino, who confirmed that James had suffered another hamstring injury in the defeat, bemoaned Chelsea’s inability to make the most of their chances against Everton, who now have a four-point cushion between themselves and the relegation zone.
The Chelsea chief told Match of the Day: “Football is about scoring goals and we were not clinical in front of goal. I’m really, really disappointed. We didn’t get the point we deserved. I think we were better but we didn’t get what we wanted.
“This was a game to play and to win. It’s a problem we need to check. We need to analyse the reality. We need to talk and to try to improve in the next transfer market.”
Chelsea have now won just one of their last five league matches but have a kind run of fixtures coming up. Their next four games are all against teams in the bottom half of the table, including relegation-haunted Sheffield United and Luton.
The Blues also face Newcastle in the quarter-final of the Carabao Cup a week on Tuesday as they bid to get their season back on track.
