Cole Palmer’s debut season at Chelsea has been nothing short of phenomenal. The young midfielder has etched his name into Premier League folklore by joining a prestigious club as the 13th player with 20+ goals and 10+ assists in a single campaign since 1992.

His latest assist for Mikhailo Mudryk’s opening goal against Nottingham Forest marked his 10th of the season, adding to his already impressive tally of 21 goals. This remarkable feat puts him in the company of legendary names like Thierry Henry, Luis Suarez, Didier Drogba, and Frank Lampard.

These players redefined attacking prowess in the Premier League. Andy Cole and Alan Shearer, who share the record for most goal contributions in a season (47), are also on this exclusive list.

In the last decade, achieving this feat has become even rarer. Palmer joins Mohamed Salah (who achieved it twice), Harry Kane, and Alexis Sanchez as the only players to reach these heights in the past ten years.

This achievement begs the question: how much further can Palmer go this season? With Chelsea continuing to develop as a team, could he push his goal and assist numbers even higher?

The anticipation surrounding Palmer is palpable. He’s already shown a maturity and decisiveness beyond his years. His ability to find the net himself, as well as create opportunities for teammates, makes him a truly unique talent.

There’s no doubt that top defenders around the league will be taking notice. Palmer’s ability to adapt and elevate his game against tougher opposition will be a key factor in determining his trajectory.
