Cole Palmer has produced 17 goals in all competitions for Chelsea.

He joined us at the age of 21, and since then, he has demonstrated far more maturity than other seasoned players. His ability to score and find guys with his defence-piercing passes always leaves the opposition surprised. In some ways, he has improved the team’s performance; when things seem hopeless, he uses his traits to turn things around and score goals.

The draw against Burnley served as additional evidence of his sturdy performance and ability to score two goals. We were just disappointed that we were unable to hold onto our lead and win the game. But when we have a player like Palmer, who is incredibly excellent, other players will follow him also since he has all the qualities to lead the team and rank among the greatest in the future. Players of his talent and calibre are hard to come by at just 21 years old. With him, Let’s hope we win many big trophies in the future.
