FA Cup: ‘You want him in front of goal’ – Lampard hails Chelsea star

Chelsea legend, Frank Lampard, has hailed the performance of Cole Palmer after the 21-year-old shone against his former club Manchester City in the FA Cup on Saturday, despite another bitter Wembley defeat.

Lampard said the England international is the man Chelsea faithfuls want in front of goal.

Palmer produced another spellbinding display at Wembley Stadium but ended up on the losing team as Bernardo Silva’s goal ensured Pep Guardiola’s side defeated the Blues 1-0.

“He’s the man who you want in front of goal because he was the one giving all the passes today. There were lots of positives today but in this situation the transitional squad they have, let’s give them time and see if they get better,” Lampard told the BBC.

“Cole Palmer came into a club that is in a difficult moment. Maybe it has worked well for him as it has made him stand out, but it is not easy to arrive with such confidence and quiet arrogance.

“Today is another box ticked for him. Wembley, high pressure, against Man City, can you perform again at the high level? And he has just done.”
