One Man City player did not shake Cole Palmer’s hand in tunnel before Chelsea match-Cole Palmer enjoyed another clash against former side Manchester City on Saturday but had to go without a handshake from a member of the reigning champions

Cole Palmer was not shook by one Manchester City player in the tunnel prior to their exciting match against Chelsea.

On Saturday, February 17, the two Premier League teams squared off at the Etihad Stadium. In an exciting match, Pep Guardiola’s team was held to a 1-1 draw by the Blues.

Raheem Sterling, a former Citizen, opened the score with his second goal against the defending champions this season just before halftime.

With one game remaining, City trails league leaders Liverpool by four points. Despite having a chance to win the game, they were unable to breach the Blues’ goal a second time and had to settle for a point.

The ninety-five minutes of football in Manchester were packed with action, but there was one potentially tense moment in the tunnel prior to kickoff: Ederson Moraes was the only starting Manchester City player who did not shake hands with Cole Palmer. Palmer was making his first return to the Etihad since moving to Chelsea for £42 million earlier in the season.

Palmer was greeted by every City starter as they waited for the referee to signal them to enter the pitch. He shared quick cuddles with Phil Foden and Erling Haaland, but the Brazil international didn’t show the same warmth. However, there’s a very good reason why there wasn’t a handshake.

Fans of Luke Littler, who is 17 years old, may now purchase his playing shirt to show their support for him as he continues to excel in the Premier League.

Even though he lost to Luke Humphries in the final, the darts sensation stunned Alexandra Palace at the World Darts Championship (WDC) at the age of 16.

Every Thursday until the final in May, the Nuke will compete in a mini-tournament in a different city against seven of the world’s finest dart players: Humphries, Michael van Gerwen, Gerwyn Price, Michael Smith, Nathan Aspinall, Rob Cross, and Peter Wright.

The 21-year-old had just turned to face the direction of the City players after the first player had passed through the tunnel. Since Ederson was the first player to walk through, the custodian failed to recognise the Englishman and so was unable to say hello to his old teammate.

In his first season with Chelsea, Palmer has made an impact, leading the team with ten goals in the Premier League and dishing out six assists. The club’s first-ever final will feature the attacking midfielder when they play Liverpool in the EFL Cup final on Sunday, February 25.
