One Chelsea super star among Premier League Team of the Week
Cole Palmer has been named in the Premier League Team of the Week by the BBC’s Garth Crooks after yet another impressive display for Chelsea during Sunday’s 4-4 draw with Manchester City.
Palmer read the game well from start to finish— even scoring a late penalty to earn Chelsea a point against the reigning Premier League champions.
The 21-year-old has been hailed as Chelsea’s ‘main man’ by some pundits since his arrival at Stamford, and Crooks believes he has the potential to keep getting better.
He wrote for the BBC: “What a game of football. Two teams going at it full throttle and with little or no interference from VAR — it was wonderful.
“The penalties awarded to both Chelsea and Manchester City might have been somewhat controversial but referee Anthony Taylor didn’t need a monitor.
“If Erling Haaland’s spot kick was emphatic for Man City [in the first half] than Chelsea’s response by the young Palmer was definitive.
“If this kid can keep his head among the bright lights of London and not get carried away with it all, there is no telling what he could achieve. What a talent.”
