Chelsea head coach Mauricio Pochettino has fired a warning at stumbling Blues centreforward Nicolas Jackson. There is a disciplinary issue arguably developing at Stamford Bridge - could that be due to players' desperate attempts to revive the struggling west London club.

It means something to Conor Gallagher that Chelsea Football Club is at its peak and challenging for trophies. Reece James appears to be a thoughtful, caring young man who is invested in CFC. 100 percent. I am sure that, even though he left for pastures new at Old Trafford with Manchester United, former Blue Mason Mount cares about the plight or flight of his boyhood outfit.

Although Mount cannot help his one-time team anymore - to be fair, he and United have their own myriad problems which are far too complex to get in to - Gallagher and James can. Staying on the pitch would be quite helpful - for a start. While the intensity, effort as well as commitment shown by Gallagher and Blues captain James is commendable, they must be more astute and wiser to the modern game's structure and rules. Only in this way will they help CFC back into Europe and towards the top of the Premier League once again. In addition to that, the influence on younger, impressionable squad members will be increasingly positive.

Mauricio Pochettino's warning for Chelsea man

Jackson's struggles on Fulham Road and around the English top-flight are well-known by now. The attacker has shown some promise, along with increasing weaknesses. The jury is certainly out regarding the former Villarreal star.

Pochettino seeks further maturity from the 22-year-old, too. Jackson has supposedly been given his 'final warning' by his gaffer. The Senegal international has seven yellow cards in a mere 12 appearances. The Ex-Tottenham Hotspur and Paris Saint-Germain chief said this:

"We are talking about Jackson, he came from a different league. He needs to understand the rules have changed and where is the limit to talk with the referee.

Like this, many other players, or players who play less than one year. We cannot underestimate the Premier League. The Premier League, you can arrive here, but it is the toughest league.

Sometimes, as a team, we need to be more mature to manage situations, and then sometimes, we make a mistake. There are many factors, but these two are principal. You need to learn quickly; if not, you pay for it."
