(Video): Cole Palmer gives Chelsea 2-1 lead at last after great Sterling assist

It’s 2-1 Chelsea at last, and the awful mood at Stamford Bridge has been lifted a little.

Mauricio Pochettino’s team were huffing and pudding against ten man Burnley, and were starting to run out of ideas. But you know exactly who is going to step up in these situations – Cole Palmer.

He latched on to Raheem Sterling’s clever backheel flick and finished hard into the bottom corner on his left foot.

The central role he’s taken up since Conor Gallagher went off created that shooting chance.

You can see the goal in the clip embedded here:
