Nicolas Jackson escorted down the tunnel after grabbing Everton star by his throat

 Chelsea striker Nicolas Jackson was escorted down the tunnel by a staff member after a furious exchange at Everton. The incident took place after the full-time whistle, following Chelsea's 2-0 defeat at Goodison Park.

According to Sky Sports, Jackson was involved in a heated row with several Everton players, including Nathan Patterson and Amadou Onana. He appeared to grab Patterson by the throat and had to be restrained by his own teammates. Mauricio Pochettino intervened and one of his assistants led Jackson down the tunnel. Jackson joined Chelsea this summer in a £32m deal from Villarreal and has scored six goals in 15 Premier League games. He has also received seven yellow cards, prompting Pochettino to address his discipline earlier this month.

Pochettino expressed concern about the lack of Premier League experience in the team, including Jackson who came from a different league. He emphasized the need for players to understand the changed rules and the limits when communicating with referees.

Pochettino highlighted the toughness of the Premier League and the importance of maturity in managing situations to avoid mistakes. Learning quickly is crucial, as failure to do so can result in consequences.
