The Honduran joined Spurs for £12m in January 2009 and was a key figure in their run to the UEFA Champions League quarter-final the following season.

However, Palacios has revealed that he was suffering with a knee injury throughout their European campaign and was disappointed with the treatment that he received, which forced a move to the Potters in 2011.

"Tottenham was a difficult time," he told the Sun.

"I felt they would look after me better after I played injured for them. I don't feel they treated me well after the injury."

The 29-year-old is set to face his old club at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday afternoon, with Palacios keen to prove his worth to the Stoke faithful following a difficult spell under previous manager Tony Pulis.

"For Pulis, I played on 42 minutes last season," he added.

"He bought me for about £6.5m and I don't know why. I want to show the fans that I am not a lemon.

"I feel I haven't given anything to Stoke for what they paid."

Rodgers: Sterling can be striker

I

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
