The Blues stunned Tottenham at home by 2-0

The 22-year-old Senegalese star footballer Nicolas Jackson deserves to be named the best player for his brilliant performance against Spurs. The Blues won 2-0 in the 2023/2024 Premier League postponed duel on Thursday(02nd May 2024) while playing at Stamford Bridge, the Blues are aiming for full points to continue getting closer to the European zone. The 5th-placed EPL side Tottenham is in bad condition, always losing the last two matches.

The match was fierce as predicted, but Chelsea appeared efficient, the Hosts' two winning goals this time were scored by Trevoh Chalobah (24') and Nicolas Jackson (72') and the Visitors' Spurs had answers for that. Chelsea knows very well how to exploit Tottenham's weaknesses in this match interestingly, both of Chelsea's goals came from free-kick situations.

Nicolas Jackson himself seems to be starting to learn from his mistakes in wasting opportunities in the last few matches. This time, the young forward only fired two shots, one of which was a goal. Jackson's movements were very efficient, in fact, he only touched the ball 31 times. One thing that should be appreciated is Jackson's hard work in helping the team's defensive duties, namely with 4 clean tackles. Jackson's actions and contributions were given a report card of 8 by Whoscored which was rated as the highest among other players on the field.
