Palmer and Nkunku inflate the Chelsea balloon


After all, there is Chelsea of Mauricio Pochettino: sixth with a day left in the Premier League. A position that will grant access, regardless of Manchester United in the FA Cup final, at European venues. What happens this Sunday, in the domestic competition, and at Wembley, on the 25th, depends on whether it is in Europe or the Conference League.

But for sure, after the ‘blue’ victory Brighton (1-2) and the defeat of Newcastle at Old Trafford (3-2), is that it Chelsea It is up to him to travel to the old continent next season.

A balloon that seems to have been punctured at times, with Pochettino on the verge of dismissal in some sections of the season, but that ended up swelling, and in what way, thanks to the efforts of a great Cole Palmer, who with his goal in The Amex he already has 22 in the current Premier, surpassed only by Haaland (27).

The second and final was signed by Nkunku, who after all the trials of his injuries should be important to Chelsea of ​​the future. The current team added, without too many problems, the fourth victory in a row against a team that, despite De Zerbi’s efforts to be in the top 10, has nothing at stake.

They returned to Brighton, blowing, Moisés Caicedo and Cucurella, where the 0-1 boot was born. The Catalan, trusted by Buonanotte, in the 16th minute, a penalty that was annulled by VAR, put a great ball that was pointed at Palmer’s goal, grabbing his second on the stroke of half-time.

Dunk avoided it, replaced by Barco after passing through the locker room. Before, in the last play of the first half, the ‘seagulls’ came close to scoring through Joao Pedro, whose header hit the crossbar. The Brazilian wasn’t right… especially not Gross, who in the 57th minute, from point-blank range, sent it all in his favor.

And from a possible 1-1 we went 0-2, with Nkunku sending a pass of death from Malo Gusto into the back of the net. And, although Chelsa never saw the result in danger at almost any point, the sending off of Reece James in the 87th minute, for a tackle on Joao Pedro, and Welbeck’s subsequent goal, in the 97th minute , added to a fine night for Chelsea, who will return to European competition if they beat Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge.
