Former Chelsea forward, Chris Sutton, has said Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola must have “egg on his face” after selling Cole Palmer to the Blues.

Palmer scored in the Community Shield and UEFA Super Cup for City in August, before he moved to Stamford Bridge for £40 million on deadline day.

Since then, he has gone on to be the best player in Mauricio Pochettino’s side, scoring eight goals and providing six assists so far.

“If you’re a Manchester City supporter you’ve got to be thinking Pep was nuts to let him go with the talent which he has.

“Pep rarely gets egg on his face but it looks like this time he’s got it wrong. He really does. Palmer has been phenomenal in a struggling Chelsea team,” Sutton said on the It’s All Kicking Off! podcast.
