Cole Palmer sends message to Nicolas Jackson
At age 22y 139 d, Jackson is now the third-youngest player to score a hat-trick for Chelsea behind Tammy Abraham and Christian Pulisic.
However, despite scoring a hat-trick on Monday, Jackson has not had the easiest start to life at Chelsea. The striker has missed a number of big chances already this term and has come in for criticism from fans and pundits.
Now, on the back of netting three vs Spurs, Cole Palmer has told Jackson to work harder in training:
“It’s been a difficult start for him, no hiding it, but he was brilliant tonight,” Palmer said to Sky Sports. “He just needs to keep his head down and work harder in training and he will get many more hat-tricks.”
The interviewer double-checked with Palmer and asked: “You say work harder?” To which Palmer responded: “Of course. You can always work harder.”
