Cole Palmer has now done what Eden Hazard managed to do in his first season at Chelsea after Burnley draw

Chelsea attacker Cole Palmer managed to get his name on the scoresheet once again in his side’s 2-2 draw with Burnley today.

Chelsea were awarded a penalty in the first half when Mykhailo Mudryk was brought down in the box by Lorenz Assignon, who was sent off after receiving a second yellow card for the foul.

Cole Palmer has matched Eden Hazard after Burnley game
On top of scoring 13 goals in the Premier League, Palmer has also recorded eight assists in the English top flight.

Why is that so significant? Well it obviously means that the Englishman has now reached 20 goal involvements for Mauricio Pochettino‘s team this season, which is really impressive.

But what makes it even more impressive is that, according to Evening Standard journalist Nizaar Kinsella, only four other footballers who have played for Chelsea have managed to replicate that feat in their debut campaign at Stamford Bridge, including Hazard.

Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas, who joined Chelsea the same year, and Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink are the other three names on the list.

Could Chelsea lose Cole Palmer?
Palmer has a contract until 2030, so Chelsea should not be under any pressure to sell him this summer.

The England international has just joined the club as well and is playing regularly so would probably not be keen on a move so soon either.

However, his numbers this season have been ridiculous. If Chelsea continue to struggle and Palmer has another campaign like this one, Europe’s elite are going to come knocking, perhaps even his former side Manchester City.

It would be hard to say no if his current team remain a bottom half of the table outfit and out of the Champions League.

Understandably, though, Palmer is not a player who Chelsea will want to lose, with it being claimed that the club want to make him their poster boy.
