Chelsea youngster Kasey Palmer still has a great deal to learn, but it's safe to say that he is extremely talented. 

The technically gifted midfielder has been in impressive form for Chelsea's Under-21 side this season and once again expressed himself against Manchester United on Monday night. 

In fact, he was at his best throughout proceedings and, as you can see below, managed to score a brilliant free-kick.

But it wasn't just his classy free-kick that grabbed our attention. Palmer also produced a magical moment against Manchester United first-team star Phil Jones. 

Jones, making his return from a lengthy injury, endured a difficult evening, largely thanks to Palmer. 


And the talented youngster has now taken to social media to show exactly how he made Jones look slightly foolish. 

As you can see, in front of 10,000 supporters at the Theatre of Dreams, Palmer nutmegged the England international in style before unleashing a fine effort at the United goal. On this occasion, however, he failed to find the back of the net. 

First-team chance

But will Palmer play for the first-team this term? Well, temporary Blues boss Guus Hiddink has already insisted that he will give young players a chance to shine between now and the end of the season. 

There's every chance, then, that Chelsea fans will be handed the opportunity to see the 19-year-old in action for the first-team in the immediate future. 

Hiddink stated, as per the Daily Mail: "I always like to bring in the youngsters and now for the rest of the season we have the opportunity to bring in more frequently those guys.

"It is good to see guys like Loftus-Cheek and (Jake) Clarke-Salter coming in. Of course, we can not win anything any more which makes it a little easier, so on the other hand it would be interesting to see guys like Loftus-Cheek come in and play when there is something at stake, with the pressure.

"But then it is more difficult to bring in three or four who haven't had the experience.

"Of course it would be nice to by unbeaten, from December on, but it is rather personal, although not that important for me. When you have young kids there is more of a risk of failure as you give them that experience, so the risk of a defeat is higher as well.

"But I prefer that to saying I want my personal record to the end of the season, I prefer to give the youngster a chance."
