After a hectic back-and-forth game in which Man City looked set to win 4-3, the Blues won a late penalty after Ruben Dias brought down Armando Broja.

The 20-year-old Palmer, who only moved to Stamford Bridge in the summer, stood up to take the penalty and fired past Ederson to level the score.

Fans loved the moment on social media as they praised the Englishman.

One wrote: “His name is Cole Palmer. Cold as ice.”

A second commented: “ICE COLD COLE PALMER.”

A third said: “I’m not a big fan of Cole Palmer but that was a very cold penalty.”

A fourth wrote: “Cole Palmer is too cold. Better than Foden.”

Another added: “Cole Palmer is a better player than Phil Foden.”


After the game, Palmer was asked if he wanted to score against his old team.

He told Sky Sports: “I have the utmost respect for the club.”

“It was nice to see some friends. We were unlucky not to win but it was another great game.”

“I’ve got a lot of City fans at home but yeah, it’s the game.”

“I had to wait a long time, but I was confident about the penalty.”

In his composure, he added, “I won’t say I practice them, because I don’t.”

“I trust my natural abilities.”

Palmer had been booked earlier in the game for fouling the penalty spot.

The penalty was awarded after Marc Cucurella was awarded a foul on Erling Haaland, but Jamie Carragher did not believe it was a foul.

Palmer cost Chelsea £42.5 million in the summer transfer window and he has emerged as one of their top players this season.

The club’s fans hailed him as the player they believed Mason Mount would become.
