Chelsea boss, Mauricio Pochettino, has stated that Cole Palmer could be handed his first Premier League start for the Blues in their clash against Fulham on Monday.
Pochettino spoke at his pre-match press conference ahead of Chelsea’s clash with Fulham at Craven Cottage.
Chelsea had signed Palmer in a potential £45 million transfer from Manchester City over the summer transfer window.
Palmer has made just four appearances across all competitions for Chelsea so far this season.
When asked if Palmer would make his first Premier League start for Chelsea, Pochettino told reporters: “Yes, maybe, yes.
“I’m so happy with his performance. After only a few weeks with us he was able to perform very well and fit in the team. For sure he is on my mind [for Monday].”
