Some Crystal Palace fans hail display of Chelsea loanee Conor Gallagher

‘Immense again’: Some fans rave about display from their 21-year-old Chelsea loanee

Conor Gallagher delivered an outstanding performance on Saturday afternoon in the Premier League – and some Crystal Palace fans on Twitter were left raving about their Chelsea loanee.

Gallagher, 21, has been sent out on loan this season by Chelsea to London rivals Palace. It’s extremely positive to see the way he’s started at Selhurst Park.

The box-to-box midfielder caught the eye at his loan club before the international break with a couple of goals against West Ham. Similarly, he was at the heart of his team’s display today.

Gallagher grabbed himself an assist during Palace’s emphatic 3-0 home league win against Tottenham.

The Chelsea-owned youngster was a constant menace in the final third, so it looks like he could be a mainstay for Patrick Vieira’s side moving forward this season.

Conor Gallagher move looks perfect

A selection of Palace supporters on social media were wowed by Gallagher’s latest outing for them, which should be music to the ears of the Chelsea fanbase. 

He’s quickly forced his way into Eagles XI, with a combination starting to appear with teammates like Wilfried Zaha and Odsonne Edouard.

There were some positive moments from Gallagher during his loan at West Brom last season, but this looks like a much welcomed step up for him. 

If you take a look at the Blues players out on loan, surely he’s one of the few that can really push his way into the first-team squad at Stamford Bridge next season.

Here are some Palace fans discussing Gallagher:
