'Grealish is almost in tears', 'Haaland said get out' - Fans react as latest Cole Palmer footage emerges

Chelsea fans couldn’t get enough of a “cheeky” Cole Palmer moment in their 4-4 thriller against Man City on Sunday (12 November).

In the closing moments of the chaotic clash, Pep Guardiola’s side earned a free kick in a dangerous area but the former City man opted to wander into their huddle, which did not impress his former teammates.

Erling Haaland shoved the 21-year-old away with a grin on his face while Jack Grealish, Bernardo Silva, Ruben Dias and Kyle Walker did not see the funny side.

The £42.5million summer signing has just moments before slotted away his fourth league goal with the equalising penalty, leaving City’s gap at the top of the table at just one point behind Liverpool and Arsenal.

Chelsea fans took to social media to have their say on the “genius” moment.

One fan suggested Palmer’s actions show he is set to fit in well after his move to West London.

Some fans singled out Grealish’s reaction and spotted that he was not impressed at all by Palmer’s antics.

This supporter was a big fan of Palmer’s attempts to get some inside information from his former players.

This fan noted Haaland’s reaction and was happy to see the current Premier League top scorer take the snooping well.

One fan was amused by Palmer’s spying.

This fan hailed Palmer as a “genius” for attempting to steal City’s tactics.

One supporter suggested that Palmer’s actions show that he is a “star” despite the mixed reactions from City players.
