Chelsea Run Riots as Palmer Scores His First Premier League Goal

Mauricio Pochettino’s side finally appears to be building a bit of momentum as they secured their third consecutive win, across all competitions. Fulham were first put to the sword in the Premier League and today’s win has moved the Blues into the half of the table before the international breaks.

Nicolas Jackson is available for Chelsea, but Broja deserved another chance and started ahead of Jackson, while Raheem Sterling has proved England manager Gareth Southgate after being snubbed by scoring and contributing to all the goals.

However, Chelsea have secured back-to-back wins in the Premier League for the first time since March this year. This came through hard labor, coming from behind before winning the match with four goals. The newly promoted Burnley took the lead at 15th-minute, Wilson Odobert stunned the visitors with his first goal in English football. Chelsea offered little in response until Sterling’s strike was deflated by Ameen Al Dakhil and the ball entered into the host net three minutes before the break to get the Blues leveled.

The visitors completed the turnaround early in the second half when Cole Palmer scored his first premier league goal and first Chelsea goal as he converted from the spot after Raheem had been fouled in the penalty box. After the break further goals from Raheem Sterling and substitute Nicolas Jackson wrapped a comfortable win for the visitors. The host remaining in the relegation zone with only one win since this season, while Chelsea moved to ninth in the standings on the table.
