But Hasselbaink (pictured) agreed that Jackson was ‘not the finished article but definitely has big potential’

‘They’re totally different.If you talk about Didier Drogba that’s not fair on the boy. But we all know that his runs his work rate is absolutely magnificent,’ the former Chelsea striker said to Sky Sports during Friday Night Football. 

‘I actually think he’s doing too much.I want to see him around the box a little bit more, but I want his team-mates to find him a little bit more around the box. 

‘These are the kind of things he can do and that Didier Drogba wouldn’t do. You know dribble the ball through the middle of the pitch for a long time and then passing it to his team-mate. 

‘He’s got so much potential.The only thing I’m a little disappointed about is against west ham they had a penalty, and [he should have] taken the ball as a striker and got your first goal.’ 

Drogba arrived at Stamford Bridge in 2004 and went on to score 164 goals in 381 appearances across all competitions for the Blues, winning four Premier League trophies and a Champions League title too.
