Cole Palmer

No wonder he’s going to the top

Chelsea fans have spotted what’s on Cole Palmer’s phone lock screen and believe it’s a sign of his incredible mentality.

Palmer scored again for the Blues in their 2-1 win against Brighton and Hove Albion on Wednesday, taking his tally to 22 in the Premier League.

He’s been one of the standout players in the league, let alone at Chelsea, and has been nominated for the Premier League’s Player of the Year.

There will be other awards to win too including the PFA awards – which are voted by players, with a Player of the Year and a Young Player of the Year awards on offer.

Palmer’s lock screen says it all

Ahead of the game Palmer was spotted with his phone out while entering the Amex Stadium and football fans noticed his lock screen.

Displayed on his phone was a picture of the PFA  Player of the Year award, which is a target that is certainly attainable for him and it left many rather impressed.

One person wrote on X: “That’s all you need to know about this lad’s mentality! Top top.

“This guy’s self assurance is probably his greatest asset,” added another.

“Mentality is the key,” commented a third.

A fourth said: “He already knows he’s winning it.”

Palmer for Euros?

With the season coming to an end this week, attention will quickly turn to England’s Euro 2024 campaign.

Gareth Southgate will have the luxury of selecting a 26-man squad after UEFA gave permission for teams to increase the number of players from it’s usual 23-man squad.

Palmer is one of those who may well benefit from the extra three players allowed.

On form alone, he absolutely has to go, it’s just whether Southgate deems it to be too early or not.

Other names such as Harvey Elliot, Kobbie Mainoo and Adam Wharton have also been discussed but Palmer is perhaps the most nailed-on to be included out of the group and if he can keep up his club form at international level, Euro 2024 glory is a real possibility for the Three Lions.
