Palmer voted Premier League Young Player of the 2023/4 season | News | Official site

Cole Palmer has won the Hublot Premier League Young Player of the Season award after an outstanding debut season at Chelsea.

Having signed from Manchester City on deadline day, Palmer has consistently produced performances of the highest quality during his first year in Blue.

The England international has scored 22 times in the league to date and made 10 assists, meaning he has 32 Premier League goals in just 33 appearances this season.

The 22-year-old midfielder's form means he is currently second in both goals and assists charts in the Premier League this season, with just one game remaining.

Palmer is the only Chelsea player to have won the award since it was first presented after the 2019/20 season, when Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold lifted the trophy.

Before his recent 22nd birthday, Palmer became the third player in Premier League history to reach over 30 goals in a single season aged 21 or under.

The striker also equaled Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard's Chelsea record of 16 Premier League home goals in a season, including a tally of four against Everton and a spectacular hat-trick in our victory over Manchester United.

Palmer fought off stiff competition to win the title, with Manchester City duo Phil Foden and Erling Haaland, Manchester United's Kobbie Mainoo, Arsenal pair Bukayo Saka and William Saliba, as well as Tottenham's Destiny Udogie also on the list restraint.

Congratulations, Cole!
