Erling Haaland make headlines by pushing Cole Palmer

In a thrilling 8‑goal match between Chelsea and Man­ches­ter City, Erling Haa­land made head­lines by push­ing his for­mer team-mate, Cole Palmer, who attempt­ed to eaves­drop on a cru­cial team talk.

Cole Palmer, now play­ing for Chelsea, faced his for­mer club for the first time since his trans­fer to West Lon­don. He even scored a late penal­ty dur­ing the match that end­ed in a 4–4 draw.

In the dying moments of the game, Palmer cheek­i­ly tried to lis­ten in on City’s team talk as they gath­ered on the pitch. Haa­land, who had a fan­tas­tic per­for­mance with two goals, imme­di­ate­ly inter­vened and pushed Palmer away from the group.

The inci­dent appeared to be in good spir­its, with Erling Haa­land flash­ing a smile as he guid­ed his ex-team­mate out of the City crowd. Despite the dra­ma, both teams ulti­mate­ly set­tled for a point in this high-scor­ing Pre­mier League affair.

Mean­while, some fans were dis­pleased when Cole Palmer was booked for tam­per­ing with the penal­ty spot dur­ing the match against Man­ches­ter City. Haa­land had earned a penal­ty after being fouled by Chelsea’s Cucurel­la, and Palmer was caught try­ing to scuff up the spot.

Such games­man­ship is not uncom­mon in foot­ball, as seen recent­ly with Man­ches­ter Unit­ed’s Ale­jan­dro Gar­na­cho. How­ev­er, Palmer’s actions drew crit­i­cism, includ­ing being labeled a “clown” by Copen­hagen defend­er Denis Vavro.

The match at Stam­ford Bridge end­ed with a thrilling 4–4 draw, as nei­ther side could assert dom­i­nance over the oth­er. City ini­tial­ly took the lead through Haa­land’s con­tro­ver­sial penal­ty, but Chelsea respond­ed with goals from Thi­a­go Sil­va and Raheem Sterling.

The vis­i­tors equal­ized just before half­time through Manuel Akan­ji, and Haa­land swift­ly restored their lead after the break. Nico­las Jack­son lat­er brought Chelsea lev­el once again before goals from Rodri and Palmer result­ed in a dra­mat­ic 4–4 score­line on Sun­day night.
