Cole Palmer’s latest goal and assist puts him above Heung-Min Son and Mo Salah in important stat

Cole Palmer got a goal and an assist tonight, both coming from shots that he lashed in from the edge of the box.

That marks the 5th game this season in which he’s got both a goal and an assist. That’s more than anyone else in the Premier League.

It shows just how influential he is, both as a creator and a goalscorer for us. In those 5 games and beyond he’s contributed directly to a ridiculous number of points for us. We shudder to think where we’d be without him.

Tonight illustrated exactly what makes him so good. It’s just a ruthless confidence to hit the ball at goal early – and of course, most importantly, effectively.

There are some talented players in this group, but there are none with the combination of confidence, decision making and technique that Palmer has to make him such a productive player in both creating and scoring.
