Chelsea fans are all saying the same thing about Christopher Nkunku and Nicolas Jackson, their striker problems could be fixed
| Last updated
Chelsea fans are loving what they are seeing from their new signings following their pre-season friendly against Brighton.
Christopher Nkunku grabbed his second goal in as many games for the Blues with an instinctive finish in the first half.
The new signing has been playing the out-and-out striker role for Mauricio Pochettino’s men in the past couple of games and has looked to settle in quite quickly.
He had netted in Chelsea’s 5-0 win against Wrexham earlier in the week and is looking to be the missing piece to the Premier League side’s game.
He was subbed off in the 63rd minute for fellow new signing Nicolas Jackson who also looked to quickly make his mark on proceedings.

The Senegalese international provided some brilliant link-up play with Mykhalio Mudryk’s wonderful individual effort.
Jackson looked lively throughout and capped off his performance with a thunderous effort in the 76th minute to grab his first goal for the Blues.
Chelsea fans were all saying the same thing about their new signings.
One fan wrote: “Nkunku is a player destined for greatness. Goals in back to back games!”
Another said: “Nkunku instinctual finish to equalise, exactly what Chelsea have been lacking.”
A third added: “Said it before and I’ll say it again, Nkunku is the signing of the summer in the PL. He is that good.”
There was a similar sentiment shared for Jackson’s performance.
One fan commented: “NICOLAS JACKSON IS HIM.”
Another said: “NICOLAS JACKSON I AM STANDING UP AND APPLAUDING YOU ARE WORLD CLASS.”
A delighted fan added: “Nicholas Jackson has more open play assists in 2 games than Mason Mount has in his entire Chelsea career.”
The Blues withstood a late comeback from Brighton to secure a 4-3 victory.
