Cole Palmer would not win a trophy if he swapped Chelsea for Arsenal, according to former Manchester United striker Dwight Yorke.

Palmer has hit the ground running in his first season at Chelsea following his £40 million move from Manchester City last summer with 23 goals in all competitions so far.

But Chelsea have struggled for consistency this season as Mauricio Pochettino’s side currently sit ninth in the Premier League and 19 points off a top-four spot.

However, Yorke insists Palmer should not be looking to leave Chelsea after just one campaign and feels the 21-year-old is not guaranteed a trophy elsewhere.

‘There would be no point in Cole Palmer leaving Chelsea for Arsenal because they’re not winning any trophies either, it wouldn’t make any difference,’ Yorke told Crypto Casino LTD.

‘He wouldn’t go to Liverpool who will be transitioning under a new manager and team. Palmer needs to stay at Chelsea and become the top dog of the club, build his reputation and be the man to move the club forward.

‘Sometimes, players can be quick to move to a more successful or bigger club, but players can be the main man to take these clubs up a level. At Liverpool, he won’t ever be a bigger player than Mo Salah or Virgil van Dijk.

‘My advice for Palmer is to stay at Chelsea. Imagine Zinedine Zidane goes to Chelsea next year and Palmer leaves, it wouldn’t work out for him.

‘I’d love Man United to sign him, but I don’t think that will be the case because of his Man City connection, he’s too young to deal with that.

‘Also, it’s only his first full professional season, let’s see if he can do it over multiple years.’
