Chelsea have had a difficult season so far.

Despite spending millions of pounds to bring in new players, not much has happened at Stamford Bridge in the way of positive change.

The Blues are still a mid-table team as things stand, and their hopes of securing Champions League football are hanging by the thread.

Aside from that, there is also the Carabao Cup semi-final setback suffered last week after losing 1-0 away to Middlesbrough.

Not a lot is going well for Chelsea at the moment, but one thing fans can all agree on is that the team does have an abundance of talent in the players they have signed.

One of those players, who have caught the eye this season is Cole Palmer, who signed for the club from Manchester City last summer.

The 21-year-old has eased into life at West London, producing some match-winning performances along the way, as was the case this past weekend when he scored from the penalty spot to hand Chelsea a 1-0 win against Fulham.

The goal was Palmer’s ninth of the season, after 17 Premier League games, and Chelsea great, Leboeuf has now hailed him as the only player that’s doing something positive at the club right now.

Speaking on ESPN FC after the win against Fulham, the Frenchman said of Palmer: “Really, that was again an appalling, for me, performance. Only Palmer gives me hope that something good can come out from a player.

“But otherwise, again, it’s predictable, it’s nothing special, they don’t create anything, they don’t change the pace.”
