Player to watch – Cole Palmer

Cole Palmer top scores in the league for Chelsea this season with 10 goals and has six assists to his name, more than any of his teammates. To have scored that many goals and provided so many assists, Palmer has got to be one of the signings of the season in the Premier League.

Leading by example

Considering this is his first season at the club and he wasn't a regular starter at Manchester City, Palmer has been really impressive for Chelsea and has provided a bright spark in an otherwise dull season for the Blues.
