Premier League: Palmer inspires Chelsea to 3-2 win over Newcastle – reaction

Chelsea goalscorer Cole Palmer, speaking to Sky Sports, says: “We’ve had some difficult results, obviously the cup final against Liverpool so to get the points is vital. We showed passion, courage winning the second ball and not getting bullied. As a young team we’re going to make mistakes.”

On moving from Manchester City to Chelsea last summer: “I thought I was ready to play football week in, week out and that’s the reason. I just wanted to showcase my ability and thankfully it has paid off. It was a very difficult decision to leave City, I was there since six years old. I was ready to play football, had a chat with my family, had a chat with the club and moved to Chelsea.”

On getting into Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the Euros: “If you had told me at the start of the season I had a chance to go to the Euros I wouldn’t have believed it. I will just take it each game as it comes and see what happens in the summer.”

On Chelsea’s critics: “There’s so much talent around Chelsea that the fans don’t see and you [the media] don’t see. If not next season, the season after, you will see it sooner or later. We’re still in the FA Cup and hopefully win on Sunday to get to Wembley again.”
