Cole Palmer admits he’s apologised to Chelsea head coach Mauricio Pochettino after a touchline accident during Saturday’s 2-2 draw against Arsenal.

The Blues had to settle for a point on the weekend after an action-packed home draw versus Arsenal in the Premier League.

Cole Palmer, 21, seriously impressed with his individual performance. Gary Neville even said Palmer was “wonderful” against Arsenal, as quoted by Sky Sports’ Main Event channel (6:01pm, 21 October).

The £40million Chelsea attacker (Sky Sports) has since explained that he’s said sorry to his manager, though.

Accident in Chelsea dugout
Palmer’s shared that he accidentally launched a drink bottle that hit Mauricio Pochettino when Arsenal scored their equalising goal at the weekend.

Palmer said via Chelsea’s official website: “When they scored their second goal I was getting a drink. I went to throw the bottle away, as you do, but didn’t look. I just saw it loop dead slow and hit the gaffer. I said sorry to him and apologised properly after the game. Hopefully he won’t drop me for that!

“We get on well. I try to show him every day in training what I can do. Work hard and just try to repay him because he puts a lot of faith in us.”

Maybe an extra lap around the pitch at training is enough punishment for Chelsea’s new favourite attacker.

Cole Palmer in our good books
Palmer’s impact during his first two months as a Chelsea player is super impressive.

Most people were a bit sceptical about his big-money arrival from Manchester City in the summer, but he’s already added an extra spark into the Blues attack.

We’ve seen the England Under-21 international impress already as a wide or central attacker. Ultimately, he’s an individual you want on the ball as much as possible in the final third of the pitch.

His position in the starting line-up look pretty nailed on right now, scoring in back-to-back league matches now from the penalty spot. We’re pretty sure the best is yet to come from this young talent!

The fact that Chelsea have now scored eight goals in their previous three league games suggests that the forward line is finally starting to gel together. There’s no doubt Palmer is central to the success right now.
