The win brings Chelsea closer to the European places, much to the relief of Mauricio Pochettino. Palmer opened the scoring with a curling effort followed by a nod home, and then scored a remarkable chip over the head of Jordan Pickford from 35 yards out.

His teammate, Nicolas Jackson, also contributed with a smart volley. Palmer then scored a penalty, making it a remarkable seven successive home league appearances where he has scored. However, the night was marred by egos as there was a squabble over who should take a penalty, with Palmer eventually taking and scoring the penalty. Ex-Liverpool star Jamie Carragher believes that Palmer could be in the running to be named the Premier League’s Player of the Year.

He has scored 20 league goals so far this season, matching City’s Erling Haaland. Pickford’s form is a cause for concern, as he has made errors in recent games, leading to goals for the opposition.
