Carlton Cole explains one aspect of Cole Palmer’s game that people haven’t noticed

Carlton Cole has made it clear he is a big fan of rising Chelsea star, Cole Palmer, while highlighting an area of Cole Palmer’s game he finds interesting.

Chelsea as a team, have struggled for consistency this season, especially in the Premier League, but Palmer has definitely stood out from his teammates.

The 21-year-old attacker, who signed from Manchester City last summer, has impressed with his technique, maturity, and presence on the field.

With an impressive tally of 12 goals and nine assists in 28 matches, the England star has caught the attention of fans and pundits alike. And talkSPORT pundit, Carlton Cole, has now highlighted his endurance as one of the things that make him (Palmer) special.

Cole told talkSPORT: “He’s a player who’s really exciting. For me, I’d select him in the England squad now. You can rely on him to do something in the final third… He’s doing it in the later stages of the game as well so he’s not tiring.”

Cole is not the only football pundit that has been blown away by the remarkable talent of the attacker, as Cole Palmer’s game play has been a major talking point this season.

Former Chelsea man, and Commentator, Andy Townsend also recently showered praise on the England international, who he also believes has some similarities to former Real Madrid and Arsenal midfielder, Mesuit Ozil.

“I do like him. I think he would be well suited to international football in some ways,” Townsend told talkSPORT.

“He’s one of those younger players that’s prepared to take that extra touch in a tighter area and yet still produce a pass. I like the way he drifts anywhere across the line.

“Remember Mesut Ozil when he was at his best, he sort of drifts very casually into areas and glides into areas.

“Cole Palmer is a little like that. He’s got that real nice appreciation of the ball when it’s at his feet.”
