Chelsea midfielder Cole Palmer reckons it will be weird returning to the Etihad Stadium as an opposition player. 
Palmer will mark his first return to Manchester City’s home ground since signing for the London-based club at the end of the summer transfer window.
Palmer has quickly adapted to his new surroundings, scoring 12 Premier League as he leads the Blues in goals scored.
“I have been surprised by how well it’s gone here so quickly, but I always back myself to succeed.
“I’m looking forward to going back to the Etihad. It will be strange, a weird feeling, but I’m looking forward to it and the team’s looking forward to it.
“I’m very excited to be honest, even though it will be strange. Obviously I played against them at Stamford Bridge, but I think going back to the Etihad will be even stranger,” Palmer told the club’s official website.
Palmer (21) was signed for £40 million, with potential add-ons rising to £2.5 million.

The silky left-footed player scored on his first game against his former club at Stamford Bridge. The game ended 4-4, with Palmer netting the penalty that tied the match in stoppage time.

“When I made the decision to come down here with my family it was a really tough decision to leave. But I felt like I was ready to play week in, week out and showcase my ability.
“So thank you to the club and everyone who has supported me.
“It’s down to the manager (Mauricio Pochettino) giving me the freedom, the club giving me the opportunity and the lads, who have been great with me since I came in.
“I’ve settled fast so I’m enjoying it here,” noted Palmer.
