Player to watch – Cole Palmer

Cole Palmer was the standout player in Chelsea's last game, scoring twice, but the end result will only have disappointed the Chelsea fans on the day as Burnley came back to secure a 2-2 draw.

Palmer has scored 13 times in the Premier League as well as providing eight assists, making him Chelsea's top scorer and chief playmaker this season.

Impressed at the weekend despite the result

Being a former Man City player, Palmer is bound to get some stick from the travelling Man Utd fans and the England international will be keen to silence them as soon as possible, so we are expecting another high-quality performance from the midfielder.
