Mauricio Pochettino says, a 22-year-old Chelsea player will play on Sunday for the first time this year

Mauricio Pochettino, the manager of Chelsea, has now announced that one of his players will make his first team comeback this season.

Following his recent elimination from the African Cup of Nations. He stated in his pre-match press conference that. He thinks he will be able to call on Nicolas Jackson for the first time since December. Since he started playing for his nation, Jackson has undoubtedly been missed, as they haven’t had a striker this year.

Although Armando Broja was the only viable option for Chelsea. Pochettino’s faith in him has now been demonstrated by his loan to Fulham for the remainder of the season.

Pochettino has today hinted that he has more than enough belief in youngster Deivid Washington if he needs to call upon him in the coming weeks

The Argentine added that Jackson will be back with the team starting this weekend, barring any unforeseen circumstances.

Jackson is ready for Sunday in Chelsea vs wolves clash

He said: “We need to assess Nico. Today was his first training session with chelsea. He didn’t play too much but was one month away. For sure, he will be involved if nothing happens tomorrow with the squad.

The Blues’ Premier League encounter against Wolves at Stamford Bridge is an opportunity for them to resume their winning ways.

They will know full well that they must put on a much better show than the one they did against Liverpool earlier this week. The only real bright spots for Chelsea during their humiliation at the hands of the league leaders were Djordje Petrovic and Christopher Nkunku’s performances.

Jackson might provide the versatile striker that the Blues have been sorely lacking these past few weeks.
