Why Cole Palmer was grabbed by Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino following the Blues’ FA Cup victory over Preston was explained.

Consequently, what happened?

Despite a challenging first half, the Blues won 4-0 thanks to goals from Armando Broja, Thiago Silva, Enzo Fernandez, and Raheem Sterling. Despite having assisted Chelsea’s second goal when Silva nodded home from his corner, Palmer was the subject of what seemed to be a serious convers.

 

During the media duties following the game, Pochettino expressed his disappointment that the former Manchester City player was unable to score a goal for himself. On his performance, though, Pochettino said he was “impressed” with what the former Manchester City player had to offer.

POCHETTINO’S SPEECH

“I think he arrived the last day of the transfer window and his performance after six months, incredible,” Pochettino told the media. I’m a little let down today because he didn’t get a great opportunity, and even though he’s young, he still has room for improvement.”

 

“He has a lot of things to learn, but he’s making great progress. He’s a great player for us, and I’m really happy with him.”

 

AND FOR PALMER, WHAT NEXT?

The 21-year-old will play in the first leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final between the Blues and Middlesborough, a Championship team. Since this might be their only realistic chance to win a trophy this season, the Blues are probably going to field a full strength team.
