Chelsea and Manchester United got themselves new strikers, Nicolas Jackson and Rasmus Hojlund to kickoff their 2023/2024 season and maybe compete with Man City’s Erling Haaland.
It’s has however been a turnaround of things for both clubs who is suffering a relatively slow start to the season with both strikers failing to show up for their clubs.
Nicolas Jackson and Rasmus Hojlund didn’t kickoff their seasons as they likely might have thought they would. Nevertheles, lets dig dip into this comparison.
Nicolas Jackson has proven to be a better goalscorer than Rasmus Hojlund. Not just because he has more goals than Rasmus Hojlund so far this season. Jackson proves to be creative and can get himself goalscoring opportunities better than Hojlund.
Rasmus Hojlund is a bigger threat to defenders than Nicolas Jackson. Despite not being as creative, Hojlund wears an armour that would keep defenders on their toes when he attacks with the ball. It’ll be more comfy for defenders to attack Jackson who most times shows fear and indecision when on the ball.
Nicolas Jackson is a better team player than Rasmus Hojlund. He communicates and connects better with his midfielders making it easy for him to get balls. Hojlund would pass to be that one touch finisher like Erling Haaland but might need to improve on his positioning.
Again, Nicolas Jackson has a better first touch than Rasmus Hojlund.
Rasmus Hojlund is faster than Nicolas Jackson.
With all these spelled out. Who do you think is a better striker and goalscorer between Nicolas Jackson and Rasmus Hojlund?
