Chelsea supporters on social media were once again singing Conor Gallagher’s praises thanks to his exhibition for England Under-21s last night.
Gallagher etched his name onto the scoresheet for the Three Lions against Slovenia yesterday in their Euro 2023 qualifying clash.
The 21-year-old had only netted once for his country before the game in Celje on Thursday.
Lee Carsley’s side cruised to an early 2-0 lead thanks to goals from the Crystal Palace loanee and Cole Palmer.
However, Slovenia decided to spoil the party by drawing level in the second half and snatch some of the spoils.
Despite the largely disappointing result from an English perspective, Gallagher’s individual performance had a lot to be admired.
Respect that Chelsea fans duly delivered.
Here’s how they reacted to the midfielder’s efforts on Twitter:
Incredibly special player, think he’ll be in the squad next season— Azza ⭐️⭐️ (@CFCAzza97) October 7, 2021
Superstar— Chano (@Chano160) October 7, 2021
Really going very well for him. 👌🏻— Shubham! (@_ShuBhamCFC) October 7, 2021
Conor Gallagher is too good for this team.— Chelsea Loan Army (@CFCLoanArmy_) October 7, 2021
Gallagher prince of the Palace
Scoring on international duty ticks another box in Gallagher’s checklist this season.
His move across London in the summer has been nothing but positives from the get-go.
Six Premier League starts from a possible six for Palace – he was unable to face Chelsea on matchday one – with two goals and an assist to his name.
He was also awarded the club’s Player of the Month for August.
Already a favourite amongst the Eagles flock, Gallagher has also become a personal treat for some pundits.
Chelsea’s Conor conclusion
Understandably, Chelsea will be watching their pupil’s progress extremely intently.
Thomas Tuchel must be aware of the golden-haired, blue-eyed prospect making waves not far from Stamford Bridge.
Although the campaign’s conclusion is still some way off, a decision about Gallagher’s Chelsea future must already be in discussion.
