Fans have taken to social media to slam Chelsea striker after his failed step overs against Brentford. 

Jackson has faced a lot of criticism for his performances since his £32million move from Villarreal last summer. 

The Senegal international has scored eight goals so far in his Premier League debut season but may have had more if he was clinical. 

During saturday’s west London showdown with Brentford, Jackson attempted to dribble with step overs but failed miserably as he tripped over his own foot. 

Fans on social media have slammed him, with some urging the Blues forward to ‘try another sport.’

One fan wrote on X: ‘Jackson you might as well try another sport bro lmao,’ with crying emojis. 

Another said: ‘Jackson is legit a comedian’, while another mirrored those view by saying, ‘Nicolas Jackson is a clown’

A Manchester United fan added: ‘Chelsea fans really compared Nicholas Jackson to Drogba at the start of the season… Jesus Christ.’

Jackson then missed a big chance minutes later, failing to find the back of the net after rounding Bees goalkeeper Mark Flekken before his effort was cleaned off the line. 

In a whirlwind first half, Jackson ended up giving Chelsea the lead moments later with a brilliant header from a cross by Marlo Gusto 10 minutes before the break. 

The 22-year-old let out his relief as he celebrated by shushing the crowd.
