Geospatial Analytics - Area node

I am getting a strange result.

I load the polygon for the City of London as an example. I then convert projection to epsg:3857 for the units to be in meters and then use the Geospatial Area Node.
The result I get is strange at approximately 8km2. I understand that the City of London is around 2.9km2.

Any idea as to why this is estimated incorrectly?
