Mauricio Pochettino was full of praise for Chelsea pair, Raheem Sterling and Cole Palmer, following the parts they played during Saturday’s 4-1 win against Burnley.

Sterling had a hand in all four of Chelsea’s goals, scoring one and grabbing an assist, as the Blues picked up their third league win of the campaign.

Palmer was also influential in the clash, as he netted a penalty and set up Nicolas Jackson for his third goal in a Chelsea shirt since his summer transfer to Stamford Bridge.

Poch said of Sterling: “I am so pleased because I think he needs to feel the net and he is a player with experience that can provide a very good thing for the team.

“He created a penalty and then he scored and he was involved for the first goal, the own goal. He’s an experienced player and he needs to provide many things to the team.”

On Palmer, he added: “He is a very talented player and he has the quality and he surprised me when I arrived because it was the day before the transfer window closed. The way the he reads the situations and what the team needs in every situation, he can be the player who can link with his team-mates. Still very very young but with great personality and he has the talent and the quality which we saw today.”
