Running onto the ball he calmly slid the ball past Martin Dubravka and into the bottom corner. As cool as you’d like.

Jackson also looked impressive against Brighton on the weekend, grabbing a thunderous goal and an assist as well.
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 are all saying the same thing about their new signing.
One wrote: “I don’t tend to exaggerate but Nicolas Jackson is winning the Ballon d’Or.”
Another said: “We’ve signed the next Drogba in Nicolas Jackson.”
A third added: “Nicolas Jackson carries himself like he never thinks he’s going to miss a chance. It’s been quite a while since we’ve seen that mindset in a Chelsea shirt.”
