(Video): Nicolas Jackson’s thumping header gives Chelsea the lead

Nicolas Jackson is back!

He’s just thumped in a superb header to give Chelsea the lead, moments after having a feeble effort cleared off the line.

That will certainly silence some incoming moans and critical punditry at half time.

He’s not looked too good in the air so far, but this was great striker play. He found space between the defenders to meet Malo Gusto’s great cross.

The rain is really coming down in West London, but our striker shook off his troubles and scored a great goal. That’s a great way to silence his haters – and he dropped the “shush” celebration.

You can see the goal in the clip embedded here:
