New message from Cole Palmer to Chelsea fans after Brentford defeat
Despite Chelsea’s disappointing 2-0 defeat to Brentford, their attacker, Cole Palmer, proved to be a shining light in the match. However, Palmer is understandably disheartened by the outcome.
In a game where Chelsea controlled proceedings, goals from Ethan Pinnock and Bryan Mbeumo sealed the victory for Brentford. In response to the defeat, Palmer took to Instagram to express his frustration while also sending an encouraging message to Chelsea supporters. His caption on a posted picture read: “Not good enough, we go again!”
While the result was not in Chelsea’s favor, Palmer can take pride in his individual performance. With more clinical finishing, the 21-year-old could have notched up several assists. Statistically, Palmer made four key passes during the match, a tally that surpassed all other players on the field, as reported by WhoScored. Chelsea also boasted a substantial 68.8% possession, underscoring their dominance. Nevertheless, they were unable to convert it into a positive result.
After recent victories against Fulham and Burnley and a draw with Arsenal, Chelsea’s performance against Brentford felt like a step backward. Their upcoming fixture against Mauricio Pochettino’s former team, Tottenham Hotspur, in the Premier League does not promise an easier challenge. Tottenham, under the management of Ange Postecoglou, currently leads the table.
Comparisons have been drawn between Cole Palmer and Tottenham’s James Maddison, highlighting the young attacker’s potential. If Palmer can replicate his performance against Brentford in the upcoming match against Tottenham, Chelsea might just spring a surprise. However, it is crucial for the rest of the team to elevate their performance levels. The match against Thomas Frank’s Brentford exposed Chelsea’s shortcomings, and they will need significant improvement to secure a positive outcome against Tottenham.
