Cole Palmer's stats compared with Phil Foden, Bukayo Saka and Jarrod Bowen and there's a clear winner

Cole Palmer has been in great form for Chelsea this season.

Cole Palmer’s stats have been compared with the likes of Phil Foden, Bukayo Saka and Jarrod Bowen and there is a clear winner.

On Monday night, Palmer was in fine form as he netted four goals during Chelsea’s 6-0 win over Everton.

The 21-year-old has been an important part of Mauricio Pochettino’s team since joining from Manchester City last summer for a reported fee of £45 million.

So far this season, Palmer has recorded 25 goals and 13 assists in 41 appearances across all competitions for Chelsea.

As we look ahead to Euro 2024, England boss Gareth Southgate will be faced with a selection headache.

Palmer’s stats have now been compared with the likes of Foden, Saka and Bowen.

According to Squawka, City star Foden is the overall winner, coming out on top over the majority of stats.

Foden boasts the highest shot accuracy with 73.08%, compared to Palmer’s 66.67%, Saka’s 53.7% and Bowen’s 61.54%.

The Stockport-born star has also completed the most open play passes with 1244, which is much more than the others, who are yet to reach 1000 completed.

Foden also had the most lay-offs(60), take-ons(42), touches(1950) and the least amount of possession lost(355).

West Ham United man Bowen comes out on top after scoring 15 non-penalty goals, one more than Foden, Palmer has 11 and Saka is on nine.


Speaking recently about Foden, City teammate Kevin de Bruyne said: “He is one of the greatest talents I have played with. He can make football history for the next 15 years.

“Phil has been amazing this season so he deserves it. And it keeps me on my toes to give me that little push.”

He added: “I've been with Phil for about seven years so I don't really feel he's a youngster anymore, he's an established superstar in our team, he's been here that long. He's just amazing.”
