The Arsenal legend singled out a Chelsea player’s timely intervention.
Ian Wright has praised Enzo Fernandez’s intervention in the penalty argument that took place during Chelsea’s 2-2 draw against Arsenal.
In the 15th minute of Saturday’s Premier League match, Chelsea won a spot-kick. Despite Raheem Sterling attempting to take the penalty, it was Palmer who did the honors after Fernandez stepped in.
“I like that from Palmer but I like the fact that the team came round to say, ‘let him do it’,” Wright said on Premier League Productions.
“Raheem took it, he went over to celebrate with him [Palmer].
‘The thing is, Raheem looked a little bit disappointed at first but then Fernandez came and said something, someone else came over and said something, and it’s done.
“They scored a penalty and everyone celebrated together. It’s not a bad thing.”
Palmer duly put away the spot-kick to score his second Blues goal since joining from Manchester City in the summer for a €47 million fee.
A wander goal from Mykhailo Mudryk put Chelsea into a two-goal lead before Declan Rice and Leandro Trossard’s goals sealed Arsenal a point in a 2-2 draw.
