Cole Palmer put on a ‘Man of the Match’ performance for Chelsea, as the Blues claimed a 3-2 home win against Newcastle United on Monday night. 

Palmer set up the opening goal for the Blues after just six minutes. The 21-year-old’s attempted shot at goal was beautifully flicked in by Nicolas Jackson to set up what turned out to be a thrilling encounter at Stamford Bridge.

The ex-Manchester City star later got on the scoresheet in the second period – latching on to a quick pass from Enzo Fernandez to make it 2-1, before Mykhailo Mudryk, slotted in a third after coming off the bench in the closing stages.

It was a much-needed response from Mauricio Pochettino’s men, who only managed to get a point in their last Premier League outing, and Palmer has now expressed his happiness with the win.

“We’ve had some difficult results – obviously the [Carabao] Cup final versus Liverpool, Wolves, many games – so to get points is vital for us,” Cole Palmer told Sky Sports after the win against Newcastle.

“I think we’ve shown a bit of passion, courage, winning the second balls, not getting bullied, and just having the courage to play because I think that’s what we need as a young team, we’re going to make mistakes, everyone’s going to make mistakes, it’s about on to the next one and the next one.”
