 According to Mauricio Pochettino, He is benefiting from playing Premier League opponents in preseason, and he feels that his Chelsea team's balance was much better in the 1-1 draw with Newcastle United. The Blues put on another strong effort against top-tier English opposition at Atlanta's enormous Mercedes-Benz Arena.

Reece James and Enzo Fernandez made their debuts, and Christopher Nkunku joined Jackson in attack for the first time.

Jackson sprinted onto a pass that Ian Maatsen snuck through the Newcastle defense early in the first period, finished easily beyond Martin Dubravka, and we took the lead. Eddie Howe's team's Miguel Almiron equalized right before the break, and even though we had the better opportunities in the second half, the score remained level.

Pochettino said, "I think overall it was a good game." "I'm happy with the attitude and performance again." There were a lot of good things, yet there was room for improvement. But overall, I'm content and joyful. 

The balance, in my opinion, is much better. We still need to improve on the team's balance, but I'm thrilled that Reece [James] played for 60 minutes after four months because it's crucial for him to feel competitive. This kind of game is very beneficial. It is crucial for a player like Jackson, who joins from La Liga, to compete against a Newcastle squad that will participate in the Champions League.

I believe he has demonstrated his talent and ability: he is good in front of goal and calm when given the opportunity, according to Pochettino. He demonstrated that during the games. I'm glad because scoring gives a striker confidence and faith.

He played in La Liga, a very competitive league, but he needs to adjust to the Premier League. The pace is quicker than in La Liga, there are more transitions, and it's easier to stay engaged. The physical condition is one of the factors that makes the Premier League one of the best and one of the most competitive.

He still needs to get in better physical shape; preseason has just begun. He didn't start with us right away and arrived late.

"We are taking part in this tour and are thrilled to be here and interact with our fans, but it's also difficult, so we need to manage the situation," they said. Because of this, we administer the gamers in various ways.

"The plan was perhaps to play him for a little longer, but after 45 minutes we decided to substitute him because he felt good."
