Chelsea star apologises to Mauricio Pochettino for throwing bottle at him during Arsenal draw

Chelsea star apologises to Mauricio Pochettino for throwing bottle at him during Arsenal draw

The player has spoken out.

Chelsea forward Cole Palmer has apologised after revealing he accidentally threw a bottle at manager Mauricio Pochettino during the 2-2 draw with Arsenal.

The 20-year-old was substituted on 84 minutes at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, having scored the penalty that gave Chelsea a 16th minute.

The Blues were leading 2-1 when Palmer was withdrawn, with Leandro Trossard going on to level the scores for Arsenal on 88 minutes.

It was a bitter blow for Pochettino's side, who had more opportunities than their London rivals but failed to get over the line.

For Palmer, there was disappointment at being withdrawn from the contest before the full time whistle - and reacted by throwing a battle as he left the field.

The bottle ended up hitting Pochettino. However, as the former Manchester City starlet revealed to Chelsea's official website, it wasn't on purpose.

Palmer explained: "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."

Palmer will hope to help his side get back to winning ways against fellow London rivals Brentford, and extend an unbeaten league run that has so far spanned three matches.

Speaking after the Arsenal draw, Pochettino said: "Of course we are disappointed at the end, but we can't only look at the last few minutes.

"There were many positive things. We were the better team. We lost two points in a way you never want to lose them, but after playing a team that was fighting for the Premier League last season we can take many positives and be proud."
