The forward has been criticized for his decision-making in the final third and there are suggestions that he may be replaced over the summer. Despite being currently ninth in the Premier League and five points outside of the European spots, Chelsea has a squad worth over £1billion. Cole Palmer has been considered the team’s most important player, leading to discussions about whether he deserves the Player of the Year award.

However, Neville has also praised Jackson, acknowledging his 13 goals and five assists in 39 appearances in all competitions, while also noting the potential for more if he showed greater composure in the penalty area. In a podcast, Neville expressed his opinion that Jackson has the potential to be a second-choice striker at Chelsea. He highlighted Jackson’s youth, goal-scoring record, and perseverance and acknowledged the inconsistency in his performance.

Chelsea is expected to look for a new striker in the summer, potentially relieving some of the pressure on Jackson. Napoli’s Victor Osimhen and Brentford’s Ivan Toney are among the players the club is considering.
