Chelsea forward Nicolas Jackson was the talking point after the Blues shared the spoils against Brentford in the English Premier League on Saturday.

The Senegalese forward was on target in the 2-2 draw but his struggles during the match stole the spotlight.

Having netted the opener after connecting to a Malo Gusto assist in the first half, Brentford responded after the break their Mads Roerslev before Yoane Wissa netted an incredible bicycle kick goal to give the Bees the lead.

Chelsea levelled with seven minutes remaining through defender Axel Disasi.

However, it was Jackson's attempt at stepovers that caught the attention of many with fans trolling the striker on social media.

In a video shared on social media, while the forward tried the skills he found himself hitting the ball at the back of his foot.

Jackson has scored eight goals and provided three assists in 23 Premier League games this season.

Wissa scores bicycle kick goal against Chelsea

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that DR Congo forward Yoane Wissa scored a beautiful bicycle goal for Brentford in their English Premier League clash against Chelsea at the Gtech Community Stadium.

The AFCON star met Frank Onyeka's miss-control in the air before acrobatically firing home to give the Bees the lead.

Nicolas Jackson had opened the scoring for Chelsea in the first half before Mads Roerslev levelled five minutes after the break.
