Jackson was introduced to the action midway through the second half to replace Armando Broja but his biggest contribution was after the whistle as he was involved in an altercation.

While the cause of the row was not clear, the striker was clearly furious as his teammates and head coach Pochettino dragged him away from the argument.

As a result, they forced him off the pitch and down the tunnel to avoid the Chelsea man picking up a red card for his angry outburst.

As a result of the 2-0 defeat, Chelsea have dropped into the bottom half of the table.

Asked about the lack of progress made this term, Pochettino said: "It's a new project, it's a new team. Too many circumstances. It's tough to explain.

"Too many problems and circumstances for the season. It's not easy to build something new. Reality now, we are thinking is different.

"It's about to take decisions, being strong in how we assess the season and to improve in the second part of the season, be more competitive and to get the results a club like Chelsea deserves."
