Cole Palmer reveals his biggest challenge since moving to Chelsea

Cole Palmer makes history with record-breaking performance for Chelsea

Despite Chelsea’s disappointing 4-2 loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday, forward Cole Palmer made an impact.

The 21-year-old England international, who joined Chelsea from Manchester City last summer, showed his abilities by breaking a club record during the match at Stamford Bridge.

Palmer, who has started 15 of 19 Premier League games, got the match off to a good start. His goal in the 19th minute, assisted by Moises Caicedo, was his third consecutive home goal in all competitions.

Additionally, this strike was more than just a goal—it propelled Palmer into the history books as the first Chelsea player aged 21 or under to notch double figures in a single Premier League campaign, boasting an impressive tally of 10 league goals for the 2023-24 season.

Despite Palmer’s standout performance, Chelsea faltered as Wolves staged a comeback, ultimately securing all three points. Brazilian forward Matheus Cunha’s equalizer swiftly followed Palmer’s opener, setting the stage for a tumultuous match.

With Cunha completing his hat-trick and Thiago Silva’s late consolation goal for Chelsea, the match ended with Wolves clinching victory.

This defeat compounds Chelsea’s recent struggles, having conceded four or more goals in consecutive league games for the second time under manager Mauricio Pochettino.

The loss also saw them plummeting to the bottom half of the Premier League table, with Wolves now occupying the 10th position.

Despite the defeat, Palmer’s record-breaking feat serves as a silver lining, highlighting the promising talent amidst Chelsea’s challenges on the pitch.
