CHELSEA fans are showing Cole Palmer some love after he played a starring role in the 4-1 win over Tottenham.
The forward equalised from the penalty spot for the Blues – his third goal for the club since his summer arrival.
Palmer, 21, joined from Manchester City in a £42.5million deadline day deal and some supporters feel he is the perfect Mason Mount replacement.
Mount joined Manchester United for £55m and some feel Palmer is already better than the 24-year-old.
One Chelsea fan reacted to his performance at Spurs saying: "Cole Palmer is the man we thought Mason Mount would be. He’s a massive upgrade from both Mount and Havertz."
Another added: "I’ve never fallen in love this quickly with a new signing. Cole Palmer is absolutely class. Thank You Man City 💙"

A third wrote: "Cole Palmer has done miracles for me, that guy is magic. Particularly compared to Havertz and Mount."
And another commented: "Palmer for Mount might be the greatest move we've ever made as a club."
Palmer was heavily involved as Chelsea broke down a stubborn nine-man Tottenham side to secure a 4-1 win.
He assisted Nicolas Jackson's hat-trick goal and completed 41 passes.
