Cole Palmer clarifies the rationale behind his ‘cold’ celebration following the dramatic win against Luton Town

Cole Palmer explained his celebration following Chelsea’s thrilling 3-2 victory over Luton Town in the Premier League.

Palmer delivered an outstanding performance for Mauricio Pochettino’s side on Saturday, contributing by setting up Noni Madueke and scoring two goals to secure a crucial win at Kenilworth Road.

The 21-year-old’s first goal highlighted his powerful finishing, while his second strike demonstrated remarkable composure. In this instance, Palmer rounded the goalkeeper, skillfully maneuvered around the defender, and calmly rolled the ball into the net.

Reeling away in celebration, the England international covered his mouth before motioning that he was cold, rubbing his arms and puffing out his cheeks.

When quizzed on his celebration after the game, Palmer revealed he was replicating his friend Morgan Rogers, who used the same celebration after scoring for Middlesbrough recently.

The pair both came through Manchester City’s academy, but have since moved onto pastures new.

Speaking to TNT Sports, Palmer said: “My boy did one for Middlesborough, so I told him I’d do it.”

Madueke also spoke about his teammate’s calmness in front of goal, joking: “That’s why they call him cold Palmer!”

The winger added: “We stayed together in the last moments. We know it’s a difficult place to come.

“To be fair, we made it hard for ourselves but I’m just happy we got the three points. They made it difficult for a lot of top sides this year here.”
