LOAN WATCH: Chelsea’s Palmer buoyant as full debut helps Huddersfield go top

Kasey Palmer made this first senior start for Huddersfield Town in their win over Wolverhampton Wanderers on the weekend.

The 19-year-old attacking midfielder, who is on a season-long loan from Chelsea, featured from the start for the first time under David Wagner as the Terriers took spot on the Championship table with a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Wolves at John Smith's Stadium.

After making three substitute appearances in the league and one in the EFL Cup, Palmer started behind striker Nahki Wells with Rajiv van La Parra on the left and FC Ingolstadt loanee Elias Kachunga on the right.

Palmer played 57 minutes for Huddersfield, before begin replaced by Jack Byrne, and was heavily involved in the build-up to van La Parra's goal. He had a few efforts both on and off target and was extremely busy in attack in the first half while also performing strongly with his defensive duties.

The talented teenager was joined by Liverpool keeper Danny Ward, who starred with the gloves, and Manchester City midfielder Aaron Mooy in helping the Terriers outfit to a third straight home win in the league this campaign.

And the youngster was also clearly delighted with the way his loan spell in West Yorkshire has begun.
