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."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
