Controversy drops Cole Palmer despite his heroics against Chelsea

Cole Palmer received a yellow card for interfering with Erling Haaland's penalty.

On Sunday, Chelsea and Manchester City met at Stamford Bridge. The current Premier League winners were given a run for their money as Mauricio Pochettino’s team battled Pep Guardiola’s treble-winning side. Cole Palmer, a former Manchester City player, was the center of attention as his stoppage-time penalty became an instant classic in the Premier League.

His involvement at the penalty spot did not end there, as the 21-year-old was also charged with tampering with the penalty spot. Anthony Taylor showed the Chelsea #20 a yellow card as he attempted to scuff the penalty spot before Erling Haaland’s 25th-minute penalty. His attempts, however, were futile as Haaland made no mistake in reaching the net from 12 yards. After sending Robert Sanchez the wrong way, he scored to the right of the goalie.

Surprisingly, Cole Palmer scored an important penalty from the identical location in the second half. Many fans, particularly City supporters, were outraged by the episode, branding Palmer a traitor and a cheat.

Palmer ended his career at Manchester City last summer and joined Chelsea for a fee of £42.5 million. He has swiftly progressed through the ranks and is now a regular starter for Pochettino. He has probably been one of Chelsea’s top performers this season.
