EPL: Grow up, I’ve never seen anything like it – Alan Smith blasts Chelsea duo


Former Arsenal striker, Alan Smith has hit out at Chelsea duo, Nicolas Jackson and Noni Madueke for arguing over who would take the Blues’ penalty against Everton in the Premier League on Monday.

Smith told Jackson and Madueke to grow up, insisting that he has never seen anything like it.

Recall that Chelsea defeated Everton 6-0 at Stamford Bridge last night, thanks to four goals from Cole Palmer and a goal each from Jackson and Alfie Gilchrist.

However, there was a moment of heated arguments between Jackson and Madueke over who should take a penalty won by Palmer.

Jackson initially took the ball and walked towards the penalty spot but Madueke tried to take the ball from the Senegalese.

The pair briefly argued before Chelsea captain Conor Gallagher took the ball and gave it to Palmer, who eventually converted it.

“That is poor, that is so poor,” Smith said on commentary for Sky Sports.

“Who’s the penalty taker? Cole Palmer. Give him the ball and let him take it. Don’t worry about individual stats

“Noni Madueke is desperate to take this! He is arguing with Nicolas Jackson. I have never seen anything like it, especially given the scoreline.

“Grow up. I don’t blame Palmer for not wanting to give it up, he is the designated penalty taker and the best one at it.”
