“Next Eden Hazard”; Watch Conor Gallagher display ‘uncommon’ skills against Arsenal in Florida cup Final USA
Conor John Gallagher is an English professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Premier League club Chelsea, and the England national team. Beginning his career with Chelsea, he has spent loan spells at Charlton Athletic, Swansea City, West Bromwich Albion, and Crystal Palace.
He returned from loan to join his Chelsea squad as he looks forward to scoring a place on the Chelsea squad ahead of next season, he Performance against Arsenal has not gone unnoticed
The midfielder flew in with several high and risky challenges, which would likely result in booking in a competitive match. He failed to impress on the ball, one of the most disappointing performance of the night.
Gallagher spent last season on loan at Crystal Palace and was very impressive at the Eagles, whilst simultaneously gaining even more valuable Premier League experience.
He scored eight goals and provided five assists in all competitions at Selhurst Park, and his performances suggested he may be ready to compete for a spot in Tuchel’s squad at Chelsea.
Since his return to the club, the 22-year-old has featured in all of their pre-season fixtures.
The midfielder started against Club America and Arsenal, and came off the bench against Charlotte FC, although he did miss a penalty in the shootout defeat.
Now, Gallagher is ready for the start of the new Premier League season, and he is set to remain at Chelsea rather than going out on loan for what would be the fifth time.
“It has been good and obviously back at Chelsea, I have got to try and impress and show what I can do, but yeah, so far, so good,” he told Sky Sports.
“I loved the Palace fans as well, I just wanted to say that. I loved playing there last season, but I feel like I’m ready to make the step up for Chelsea this season.
“The boss here has said he wants me around and he thinks I’m good enough. Hopefully I can play a big part this season for Chelsea.”
