“Trust me, I know he will solve Chelsea goals problem” – Tony Cascarino
Former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino is optimistic about Cole Palmer’s chances of breaking into Mauricio Pochettino’s starting XI at Chelsea. Despite the club’s array of attacking options, Cascarino believes Palmer’s skills make him a strong contender for a place in the team.
Cascarino praised the 21-year-old’s talent and versatility, citing his ability to seamlessly integrate into a game when coming off the bench. He expressed confidence that Palmer could find a role for himself within the Chelsea squad due to his exceptional abilities.
With Christopher Nkunku and Carney Chukwuemeka sidelined due to injuries, Palmer has a golden opportunity to stake his claim in Chelsea’s lineup. His strong start to the season at Manchester City, marked by goals and impressive dribbling, showcases his potential to be a dynamic attacker.
Palmer’s versatility, being able to play in various attacking positions, adds to his strengths. While some may question his price tag, considering Chelsea paid an initial £40 million for him, his arrival fills a critical role, particularly following Nkunku’s injury.
As Palmer adapts to his new surroundings at Stamford Bridge, it will be interesting to see if he can establish himself as a regular contributor to Chelsea’s success.
