You can call him Messi for this reason – Poch on Palmer’s abilities after Aston Villa clash

Mauricio Pochettino playfully proposed that Cole Palmer ought to be called Lionel Messi and came to the protection of the Chelsea player after he botched a few critical open doors against Aston Villa.

In the FA Cup fourth-round match on Friday night, Chelsea confronted a 0-0 draw with Aston Villa, prompting a replay toward the beginning of February. Even though Chelsea put in a strong performance, Palmer and Noni Madueke missed several good chances, especially.

By and by, Manager Pochettino upheld Palmer by energetically contrasting him with Messi and furthermore shared experiences into the previous Manchester City player's ideal position.

The Argentine responded, "No, I think he cannot score in every single game," when questioned about Palmer's failure to score against Villa. We might not want to call him Cole Palmer if he did; Perhaps we ought to call him Leo [Messi]. It has nothing to do with his position, and his potential is enormous. It's simply that occasionally you score or not. You occasionally experience better nights, but he is doing well.

"He is a player who can play in various positions and you can see and feel that we never discuss his exhibitions since he is continuously doing great. It's simply that occasionally he scores or doesn't score, however he generally tracks down astounding possibilities in the game."

Saving the Messi examinations, Palmer has arisen as ostensibly Chelsea's champion player this season following his £42.5 million ($54 million) move from City the previous summer.

This season, the 21-year-old has been impressive by contributing 11 goals and 7 assists.

In spite of Chelsea's examination over their high-profile moves, the English worldwide has been a brilliant spot at Stamford Extension.

Chelsea is hopeful that Palmer will continue to score goals when they play Premier League leaders Liverpool on Wednesday and Wolves at home four days later.

Their February 12 home game against Crystal Palace is likely to come before the replay against Villa.
