Mauricio Pochettino praises Cole Palmer's heroics in historic Chelsea win

Posted : 05 April 2024

Mauricio Pochettino showered praise on Cole Palmer, asserting the 21-year-old's status as a "top player" after his hat-trick steered Chelsea to a thrilling victory against Manchester United. Palmer's heroics, including two goals in stoppage time, culminated in the latest-ever winner in Premier League history, clocking in at 100 minutes and 39 seconds. With this display, Palmer joins the ranks of top scorers in the league, trailing only Erling Haaland in the Golden Boot race.


Despite initial skepticism surrounding his £42.5m transfer fee to Chelsea, Palmer's exceptional performances have rendered the investment a bargain, according to Pochettino. The manager highlighted Palmer's mental resilience and ability to handle pressure as standout attributes that underscore his potential as a top-tier player.


Palmer's consistent display of skill and composure has solidified his place as a key figure in Chelsea's lineup, earning him a senior England debut and bolstering his chances of inclusion in the squad for the upcoming Euros.


Reflecting on Palmer's hat-trick, Pochettino expressed admiration for the player's impact and emphasized the importance of his mentality and quality in shaping Chelsea's success. Palmer, in his post-match remarks, described the exhilarating nature of the game, expressing delight over his first senior hat-trick and reaffirming his commitment to converting penalties with precision.


As Chelsea seeks to capitalize on the momentum generated by Palmer's heroics, they gear up for a crucial clash against Sheffield United, aiming to climb the league table and secure European qualification.
