The summer signing from Manchester City made an instant impression at Stamford Bridge and continued his good form with an impressive performance against the Gunners.
Palmer had a notable situation when he argued about the right to take a penalty with Raheem Sterling. But Hasselbaink was pleased to see the young player confidently step up to the 11 meter mark and praised his technique.
“He is under more pressure from his teammates but what he does is really good. Taking the penalty is not easy when the referee blows the whistle, he waits for everyone to calm down and break the goalkeeper’s momentum and take the kick.”
“For me it’s confidence, for me it’s arrogance but it’s allowed.”
This draw helped Chelsea get a valuable point, while Arsenal missed the opportunity to rise to the top of the table. Currently, the Gunners have the same number of points and are below Man City due to difference.
