With Jackson impressing off the wing against Aston Villa in the FA Cup, Pochettino admitted the forward can play in various positions.
“He started on the left [against Aston Villa], but football is dynamic and he has to move," Pochettino told reporters.
“Yes, I think he is a player that can play in this place. I am so happy because of the characteristics, he always plays better when he is facing the goal rather than his back to the goal.
“He is more comfortable. The pace, the speed, the capacity to arrive from the second line. He showed in the goal he scored how he arrives from the second line and can score.
“I am so happy because the commitment is amazing also. After arriving from the Africa Cup of Nations, it is important for him to recover and feel the net. So happy, very pleased with his performance."
