The England international beat off competition from Bruno Fernandes, Jean-Philippe Mateta, Kai Havertz, Jordan Pickford and Josko Gvardiol.

Cole Palmer has been named the Premier League Player of the Month after scoring seven goals in four top-flight matches for the blues in April.

The 22-years-old star claimed the prize following a month in which he produced two high scoring performances at Stamford Bridge and claimed an assist away at Sheffield.

He first netted a remarkable hat-trick at home against Manchester United. Palmer not only equalised in this match, he also scored the winner sending Chelsea fans into a sheer pandemonium. He then teed up Noni Madueke's strike away at Sheffield.

Next came Everton. When they visited the Bridge, the England International produced his most dominant display. He struck a perfect hat-trick inside 29 minutes, the earliest in the Premier League and then added his fourth from the penalty spot.

Palmer became only the fourth Chelsea player to score on four occasions in a Premier League fixture. He now follows in the footsteps of their legend super Frank Lampard.

Palmer topped a list that included Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, Arsenal's Kai Havertz, Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes, Crystal Palace striker Jean-Philippe Mateta, and Man City centre-back Josko Gvardiol.

Chelsea will travel to Nottingham Forest for their weekend Premier League fixture on Saturday 11th May. Will the high flying youngster continue his dominant run?
