“He should have taken ball off Enzo for penalty miss” Chelsea New signing advised

Jamie Redknapp believes Nicolas Jackson should have snatched the ball from Enzo Fernandez for Chelsea’s missed penalty against West Ham in order to begin his Premier League scoring. Although he was a shining spot in Chelsea’s 3-1 loss at the London Stadium, the Senegalese international lacked cutting edge in the final third.

Nayef Aguerd’s header off James Ward-Prowse’s corner put Chelsea down early, but Carney Chukwuemeka’s equalizer brought the Blues level.

However, the Blues squandered the opportunity to take the lead when World Cup champion Fernandez’s penalty kick was saved by West Ham custodian Alphonse Areola.

Michail Antonio and Lucas Paqueta then scored two second-half goals for the Hammers to punish Chelsea.
According to Redknapp, Jackson should have taken the penalty shot because it would have been the ideal opportunity to get on the scoresheet.

Redknapp stated on Sky Sports, “He also captivated me during the Summer Series preseason.”

“He appeared sharp, was bright, was excellent with the ball, and possessed lovely touches.

“He also works incredibly hard for the team. There were times in the first half when I thought to myself, “Wow, what a player he appears to be!”

“Unfortunately, when you’re a No. 9 or a striker, you’re evaluated based on your goals”He requires a moment similar to when Enzo Fernandez took the penalty kick; I’d like to see him say, “I’ll take that, I’m a striker, I’ll put it in the back of the net.”

“Because if he scores, anything could happen for him. Look at these little pieces of talent, he has wonderful qualities.

Today he said some positive things, and I liked what I saw, but you are evaluated based on your objectives.

Despite their excessive spending on midfielders, Chelsea could still enhance their attack during the summer transfer window.
Jackson has been deployed at center-forward, but they still lack a true offensive focal point.

Mauricio Pochettino has also stated that he is not interested in acquiring a striker if doing so would impede Armando Broja’s development.

Broja sustained a serious knee injury last season, but Pochettino holds him in high regard due to his impressive loan stint with Southampton.

Romelu Lukaku has yet to find a new club, and his departure could help finance the acquisition of a new striker.
