Cole Palmer ran into his old team, Manchester City, again on Saturday, but this time he was denied a handshake with a player from the defending champions.

Cole Palmer was unfazed by the actions of a Manchester City player in the tunnel before their eagerly awaited match against Chelsea.

The match between the two dominant teams in the Premier League took place at the Etihad Stadium on February 17 and ended in an exciting 1-1 draw. Even with the fierce rivalry,

Just before the half, former City player Raheem Sterling scored the first goal of the game, his second goal against the reigning champions this year.

With one game remaining, City trails league leaders Liverpool by four points. Their hopes of winning the match were scuppered when they were unable to break through Chelsea’s defense for a second goal, having to settle for a point instead.

Ederson Moraes and Cole Palmer were involved in a potentially tense moment in the tunnel prior to kickoff, which took place during the ninety-five minutes of exciting football action.

With the exception of Ederson, all of the City starting players greeted Palmer warmly as he made his first visit back to the Etihad after he recently moved to Chelsea for £42 million.

Ederson declined to give Palmer a quick hug, but Palmer did so with teammates Phil Foden and Erling Haaland. That being said, there’s a good reason why there’s no handshake.

In the meantime, fans of the 17-year-old football player Luke Littler can now show their support by buying his playing shirt.

At the World Darts Championship, Littler, then sixteen, drew the attention of Alexandra Palace despite losing to Luke Humphries in the championship match.

Participating in a mini-tournament every Thursday until the final in May, Littler, known as the “Nuke,” competes against some of the world’s top dart players, including Humphries, Michael van Gerwen, and Gerwyn Price.

Regarding Palmer’s encounter with Ederson in the tunnel, the 21-year-old had just turned to face the direction of the City players after the first player had passed through.

Unfortunately, since Ederson was the first to walk through, he failed to recognize Palmer, inadvertently missing the opportunity to greet his former teammate.

Despite the tunnel incident, Palmer has made a significant impact in his debut season with Chelsea, leading the team with ten goals and six assists in the Premier League.

His contributions have been instrumental in Chelsea’s journey to their first-ever EFL Cup final, where they are set to face Liverpool on Sunday, February 25.
