Nicolas Jackson was very poor with his finishing, as Chelsea lost 1-0 to Manchester City in the FA Cup semi-finals.

Chelsea had many clear-cut chances to win the game, with a good number falling to Nicolas Jackson, but the Senegal international just couldn’t score.

Jackson had a good game, but his finishing let him down.

Newcastle legend Alan Shearer was very critical of Nicolas Jackson after the game.

“Poor day at the office for him,” Alan Shearer said of Nicolas Jackson during the BBC’s post-match analysis of the game.

“It’s been a similar theme all season for Chelsea, you heard Poch before the game saying that he feels as if they should be in and around fourth position [in the Premier League] but because of the xG, this is exactly what he’s on about.

“Three wonderful chances he’s [Jackson] had, two one-on-ones, he never really looked comfortable, made the wrong decision, made some really clever runs but he never looked comfortable.

“They’re absolute sitters, they really are. He just never moved the ball out of his feet, three great chances for him.”
