Chelsea midfielder Moises Caicedo has identified teammate Cole Palmer as the player Mauricio Pochettino’s side trusts very much.
Caicedo also hailed Palmer as a ‘very talented player’ who is delighting the rest of the Blues squad.
Palmer made a surprise move to Chelsea from Manchester City on 1 September.
The 21-year-old joined the west London club for £40 million.
Palmer has quickly nailed down a spot in Pochettino’s starting XI and scored four goals in nine Premier League appearances for Chelsea so far this season.
His latest of those four goals was a last-minute penalty to secure a 4-4 draw for Chelsea against his former club Man City.
“We trust Cole very much. He’s a very talented player and a very good penalty-taker, so we were all very confident when he stepped up,” Caicedo was quoted by Metro UK as saying.
“He is showing his best form at the moment and proving just how good a player he is. We are very happy for Cole and very happy he is playing so well for Chelsea.”
