Fabregas picks Chelsea’s Player of the Season

 Former Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has picked Cole Palmer as the club’s Player of the Season.

Fabregas said this after Palmer led Chelsea to beat Manchester United 4-3 in the Premier League on Thursday at Stamford Bridge.

Speaking on his BBC podcast, the Spaniard said: “Then all of a sudden, [he gets] a big move to Chelsea, [and] starts performing at the very, very high level with a lot of quality and personality.

“He wants the ball and he makes things happen. [He has the] final pass and [also] scores goals. He looks a bit like Maddison for Tottenham. He’s that type of player that makes the team tick.”

Fabregas added: “I love him. I have been very, very impressed and I didn’t expect this type of impact. He’s been the Player of the Year for Chelsea.”
