Cole Palmer compilation vs Blackburn has Chelsea fans hailing him as the best signing since Eden Hazard

Cole Palmer compilation vs Blackburn has Chelsea fans hailing him as the best signing since Eden Hazard

Cole Palmer has made a huge impression on Chelsea fans since signing from Manchester City in the summer.

Chelsea fans are saying Cole Palmer is their best signing since Eden Hazard after another impressive display for the Blues.

The Blues beat Blackburn Rovers 2-0 in the Carabao Cup round of 16 on Tuesday night courtesy of goals from the returning Benoit Badashille and Raheem Sterling.

But it was Palmer who ran the show at Stamford Bridge, continuing a brilliant start to life at Chelsea.

Former Brighton and Crystal Palace striker was watching the game for Sky Sports ‘Gillette Labs Soccer Special’ and waxed lyrical over the England Under 21 international.

“The best player on the park is Palmer," he said.

"He just looks levels above everybody.”

And Palmer's highlights from the game would appear to back up the statement from Murray.

Playing off the right but with the freedom to roam, Palmer was the main source of Chelsea's creativity and was a joy to watch throughout, supplying a slew of glorious touches and defence-splitting passes.

He set up Sterling's goal to seal the win in the second half and played with a real swagger and confidence.

There were concerns as to whether the 21-year-old would be a regular when he arrived from Manchester City in a late £40 million summer switch.

But fast forward a few months and Palmer has genuinely been Chelsea's best player this season.

Fans are rating him higher than recent departures Mason Mount and Kai Havertz and naming him as the best signing since Hazard in 2012.

One supporter said: "Chelsea’s best signing since Hazard… Cole Palmer… what a talent!"

A second commented: "He’s like a hybrid of what Havertz and Ziyech should’ve been when we signed them."

A third added: "We get a Cole Palmer comp after every game. He's the real deal."

A fourth stated: "He told Pep he needs more game time and hit the ground running as soon as he joined us. What a player."

A fifth wrote: "If we had a decent striker for him to use we would be dangerous. Unreal player."

Palmer played 85 minutes against Blackburn and was replaced after taking a knock to his ankle.

Chelsea fans will be desperately hoping he is fit to play in the huge clash with league leaders Spurs on Monday, when Mauricio Pochettino returns to his former side.
