Chelsea's most in-form player Cole Palmer is back at Cobham Training Centre with the club showing him hugging manager Mauricio Pochettino after making his England derby last week.

Palmer is one of only two players in Premier League history to score a penalty in four games during a run of five, along with Riyad Mahrez for Manchester City between December 2021 and February 2022.

This has been one of the best months in the 21-year-old's career as he moved from Manchester City and established himself as one of the best players at two Champions League winners Chelsea.

He held his breath to score a late penalty that secured another point before the international break, ironically against his former side Manchester City.

He also scored when Chelsea beat Tottenham 4-1 to end their unbeaten start to the campaign and his general impact has been one that has coincided with a lift in Chelsea's strong form that has seen them lose just one in their last seven games.

Their form will now be tested when they travel to Newcastle United, a place they have not won in their four visits.
