The event happened at Stamford Bridge last week when Chelsea and Arsenal drew 2-2 despite Chelsea blowing a two-goal lead.
Palmer, a summer acquisition from Manchester City that cost £42.5 million, put on a strong display and scored a goal, but he also threw a bottle in the direction of the dugout following Arsenal’s equalizer in the 84th minute, which silenced the home crowd.
After he apologized, the 21-year-old believes that manager Mauricio Pochettino will not “drop him” due to his sincere error.
Speaking to the media on Friday before Saturday’s game against Brentford, Pochettino played down the incident and made jokes about benching Palmer.
“I couldn’t have predicted or seen it coming,” Pochettino remarked, laughing. “I was furious.”
It was quite unfortunate when I turned around and he said, “Sorry!” Thank goodness that didn’t hurt me!
Palmer revealed the following on the event on Tuesday: “I was getting a drink when they (Arsenal) scored their second goal.”
As you do, I went to toss the bottle away, but I didn’t look. I watched it strike the gaffer and loop at a very slow speed.
After the game, I sincerely apologized and stated I was sorry to him. I’m hoping he won’t leave me for that! We got along great. Every day while training, I attempt to demonstrate my abilities to him. Work hard and merely strive to give him back for all of his faith in us.
