It’s worth noting that Jackson made the move to the west London club from Villarreal in La Liga before the 2023-24 season. Despite scoring seven goals in 18 appearances across all competitions for Mauricio Pochettino’s side, the 22-year-old has displayed signs of inconsistency and a lack of composure.

During an episode of the Wrighty’s House podcast, Wright remarked, “I feel sorry for Jackson. He is visibly not at the required level; you can see it in his demeanor. He appears nervous, scared, and concerned because he hasn’t reached that level. As for Mudryk, he’s still playing at the same pace I observed in a few videos of him, running at full tilt without slowing down.”
