Some Chelsea fans have criticized Nicolas Jackson’s (Chelsea) hat trick.
Chelsea won the 11th round of the 2023-24 English Premier League (EPL) against Tottenham Hotspur at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England, on July 7 (Korean time), 4-1.
It was a bloodbath.
Chelsea fell behind in the first six minutes through Dejan Kluczewski.
Son Heung-min added a second, but it was overturned after video assistant referee (VAR) review.
Chelsea equalized in the 31st minute when Moises Caicedo fired in a mid-range shot.
However, Jackson, who blocked the keeper’s view, was ruled offside.
However, before the offside, Enso Fernandes was fouled by Cristian Romero inside the penalty box and PK was awarded.
At the same time, Romero was sent off with a red card.
Ten minutes into the second half, Destiny Udogie was sent off for accumulated cautions, leaving Spurs to face Chelsea with nine men.
With an 11-9 shots advantage, Chelsea went on to win the London derby thanks to Jackson’s hat-trick.
The controversy came in second-half stoppage time.
With Chelsea leading 3-1 in second-half stoppage time, Jackson again found space behind the Tottenham defense and had a chance to score. 안전토토사이트
He and Mikhail Mourinho ran together to the goal, but Mourinho scored himself.
After completing his hat-trick, Jackson performed a ‘downpour ceremony’ while Mourinho looked on in disappointment.
Some Chelsea fans were vocal about Jackson’s refusal to concede.
The argument is that in the previous two goals, Jackson had taken passes from other players and scored easily, so he should have given way to Mourinho this time.
Of course, there was also the possibility of being offside if his timing wasn’t right.
In the heat of the moment, Jackson was seen to be agonizing over the goal, but that didn’t stop some fans from voicing their displeasure.
The UK’s Sports Bible wrote: “Jackson’s three goals have been labeled the worst hat-trick of all time.
As Jackson celebrated his third goal, Mourinho went back to the center of the field.”
The UK’s The Sun also described the strange atmosphere, saying, “Mourinho did not celebrate the goal.”
