Cole Palmer has praised Mauricio Pochettino as "amazing" and said that the Argentine's man-management abilities have brought the best out of him since signing for Chelsea. The 21-year-old has been vital for the Blues since joining from Manchester City in the summer, contributing six assists and ten goals in the Premier League. In Monday night's 3-1 victory over Crystal Palace, the England international set up two further goals for his teammates, securing his place in the starting lineup even further.

Palmer told Standard Sport about the support he gets from the coach
The manager helps us all every day. It’s just little conversations telling us what to do. He supports us massively, and credit goes to the manager for keeping us together. He has been amazing [with me] from the first day. When I first came in, he just put his arm around me and gave me the freedom and confidence to go out there and play, so, yes, I’m enjoying it.

Chelsea has had a difficult time remaining consistent this season, but two consecutive 3-1 wins away from home against Aston Villa and the Eagles have boosted their confidence.

We do have meetings, and he [Pochettino] believes in us,’ he said. ‘We believe in ourselves, but everyone will talk if you’re not doing well. We just need to try and block it out and focus on ourselves. There’s always a lot of talk; you know what football fans are like, and rightly so. Chelsea is a big club, and we’ve seen them win many things for a long time. If we don’t get results, they will be onto us. But I think you’ve seen in the last two games that we are trying to stick together in our development and to keep going as a team.

Jefferson Lerma's goal had put the Blues down 1-0 at Selhurst Park, but Pochettino claimed that a discussion that took place before the second half was what made things different.
