John Terry reacts to Chelsea star's display in Crystal Palace win

John Terry has reacted to young Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher‘s winning strike in Saturday’s 2-1 win over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

He had to wait, but Graham Potter has finally had his first win at Chelsea.

It did not start well for the visitors after Palace grabbed an early lead through Odsonne Edouard’s goal.

Summer signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang came to the rescue as he scored his first goal for the Blues to equalise in the first half with a fine volley.

Chelsea controlled more of the ball, as expected, and even had more shots on target. Potter’s men just had a hard time finding the target.

The west London side had just two shots on target from 10 attempts at this point.

In the final minutes of the game, however, Gallagher, who came off the bench in the second half, secured the three points for Chelsea.

He picked his spot and curled the ball into the top corner from at least 20 yards out. Certainly, not bad for his first senior goal for Chelsea as well.

It is safe to say that Blues legend Terry was impressed.

“Conor Gallagher, what a finish,” the former Chelsea centre-back wrote on Twitter.

The Blues, at least for now, sit fifth in the Premier League table with 13 points from seven games.

They will face arguably the toughest opponent in their Champions League group, AC Milan on Wednesday before hosting Wolves at Stamford Bridge next weekend.
