Palmer is the best player in April in the Premier League, Dyche is the best coach

Everton suffered a terrible defeat from Chelsea last month, but at the same time scored 4 victories and saved themselves from relegation early

English Premier League announced last month’s winners. The best April footballer was recognized as a midfielder Chelsea Cole Palmerand the best coach became a mentor Everton Sean Dyche.

Palmer turned 22 the other day, May 6. He was bought by the Blues from Manchester City last summer for €47 million. The attacking midfielder is having an amazing season for the London club – 43 matches in all competitions, 24 goals and 13 assists. In the list of Premier League scorers, with 21 goals, he is second only to Erling Haaland (25), and in the “goal + pass” system – only to Ollie Watkins from Aston Villa.

Specifically, in April, Palmer scored seven goals in the Premier League. He did this in two matches: first he became the hero of a crazy thriller with Manchester United (4:3), and then scored four times against Everton (6:0).

This award is the first received by a Chelsea player since September 2018, when Eden Hazard was named league player of the month. Let us remind you that Palmer is also nominated for the title of the best player of the season in the Premier League, as well as the best young player of the season (under 23 years of age).

Dyche received the recognition he deserved despite the aforementioned failure at Stamford Bridge, conceding six unanswered goals. However, in addition to that meeting, in April the Toffees managed to play five matches in which they took 13 points. Including, they won four shutout victories, one of which was in the derby with Liverpool (2:0). This series allowed Everton to protect themselves from relegation in advance, even taking into account the previously deducted eight points for violating FFP rules.

In the mentioned match with Liverpool, unfortunately, Ukrainian defender Vitaly Mykolenko (30 matches and two goals in the season) was injured, who was eliminated until the end of the season, but has a chance to recover for Euro 2024.

Chelsea are in 7th place in the Premier League, battling with Newcastle and Manchester United for a place in the European competition. Let us remember that Ukrainian Mikhail Mudrik plays for the Blues (6 goals and two assists in 39 matches).
