Cole Palmer gets the last laugh by altering celebration in wild Man Utd win

Chelsea’s Cole Palmer had the last laugh after changing his celebration in response to taunts from Manchester United fans. He scored a last-minute winner to complete his hat-trick and a remarkable turnaround. The England forward joined Chelsea for £42 million from Manchester City in August, seeking regular minutes, and has been performing brilliantly this season. When Manchester United visited west London, their fans focused on Palmer’s past ties with City, chanting “City reject” and jeering at his every touch.

However, after Chelsea took the lead and doubled it from a penalty, Palmer stood confidently over the penalty spot and scored, tweaking his celebration in response to the taunting United fans. This was his 17th goal of the season, putting Chelsea in a strong position. Despite a strong start, United scored two quick goals before halftime and took the lead in the second half, looking set to win. However, Palmer scored an equalizer in the 99th minute from another penalty, and then netted a deflected winner in the 101st minute.

Palmer expressed his excitement about the hat-trick and the last-minute goals, emphasizing his confidence in taking penalties. He also mentioned his previous support for Manchester United.
