Chelsea will like to rely on the brilliance of Cole Palmer in the future

Cole Palmer - Manchester City

Don Hutchison has characterized Cole Palmer as the key element of Mauricio Pochettino’s Chelsea team. While discussing various challenges facing Chelsea on ESPN, Hutchison made it clear that, in his view, Cole Palmer is certainly not one of the issues plaguing the team.

The lack of surprise makes sense. Considering the 21-year-old has been outstanding for the club since joining Chelsea from Manchester City in the summer. His recent goal against Sheffield United marked his sixth in the league for the Blues.

Hutchison also shared his assessment of another Chelsea recruit, Romeo Lavia. He commended Palmer but expressed significant criticism of the overall performance of the Blues.

Hutchison said:  “Cole Palmer’s the brain of the outfit at the top of the pitch where he’s going to be an amazing player. But Reece James, there’s a stat with Reece James where he’s not played three games in a row for something close to three years.”

Is Cole Palmer the next big name at Chelsea?

Palmer likely stands out as the maestro in this Chelsea team. Thus, orchestrating plays in the final third and making things happen. According to WhoScored, the England international is delivering an average of 1.6 key passes per game. Hence, marking the highest in Pochettino’s squad.

In addition to his playmaking abilities, Palmer is contributing to Chelsea goal tally. With only Nicolas Jackson having scored more in the Premier League. Remarkably, Palmer is only 21 years old, and despite the impression that he has been a fixture in the top flight and at Stamford Bridge for years, he appears to have a promising future ahead of him. The former Manchester City player now seems poised for a bright career.
