Update: Will Ivorian Nicolas Jackson play against Liverpool today following AFCON knockout?

Some fans want to know whether Ivory Coast’s Nicolas Jackson will play for Chelsea during their Premier League match today with Liverpool. The Blues’ senior tactician Mauricio Pochettino commented about that.

While speaking to Chelseafc.com lately, the head coach said the following:

‘We are seeing, it’s not sure, maybe it could happen, he could be there and involved in the game.

‘If it gives us a one per cent better possibility to win the game, we will try. We are waiting for the confirmation, all I can say is maybe he is there.

‘Last week it was Ghana who went out and Inaki Williams arrived a few hours before, played in the second half and scored a goal to help Athletic to beat Barcelona in the Copa del Rey. So why can’t Jackson arrive and score the winning goal?’

‘Without Nico we miss the possibility that he provides. He runs a lot, which is massive and helps the team to press high, and also scores goals because he has a good record at the moment.

‘I think we miss him a lot and so we are happy because we can recover him, but on the other side sad because they lost. But being selfish we are happy because maybe he can be with us at Liverpool.’

The Reds’ coach Jurgen Klopp formerly announced he would wave goodbye at the end of the season. He will be looking to add more exploits to his record at Liverpool.
