Many Sky Blues were impressed with the performance of Cole Palmer in Manchester City’s League Cup triumph over Wycombe on Tuesday.

Cole Palmer’s first senior goal for Manchester City put the final flourish on a comfortable 6-1 Carabao Cup win over Wycombe as key players shook off some rust and young debutants made their mark.

Although Brandon Hanlan gave Wycombe a surprise early lead just 22 minutes into the contest, the holders managed to get back onto level terms not long after when Foden fed De Bruyne, with City’s quality eventually shining through.

Riyad Mahrez put City ahead in the closing stages of the first half, before turning provider for Foden to extend the lead to 3-1.

The England international later got his second assist of the match when he teed up Ferran Torres, while Mahrez added a fifth goal in the closing stages.

The biggest cheer came in the 89th minute as Palmer, who is one of the most highly rated players coming through the Etihad ranks, got City fans off their feet.

The 19-year-old picked up the ball inside his own half and ran at the tiring Wycombe defence before curling a shot into the bottom left-hand corner of the net – the highlight of an encouraging night for City’s future.

Some Man City fans took to social media to express their feelings on the 19-year-old’s performance.
