Noni Madueke and Nicolas Jackson both wanted to take a penalty during Chelsea’s 6-0 victory over Everton. They argued fiercely over who should take the shot. Ultimately, Conor Gallagher stepped in and ensured that Cole Palmer took the penalty, as he had been flawless from the spot this season.

Despite the commotion, Palmer scored the goal. He later downplayed the incident, stating that everyone just wanted to take responsibility. Alfie Gilchrist, who scored his first senior career goal, also brushed aside the incident, echoing the sentiment of the dressing room.
