‘He is a star’ – Conor Gallagher has fans raving after scoring brace for Palace

Chelsea loanee Conor Gallagher showed why he’s so highly rated by scoring a brace in Crystal Palace’s 2-2 draw with West Ham United. 

Gallagher came through the academy at Chelsea and has already enjoyed loan spells at Charlton Athletic, Swansea City and West Brom.

The 21-year-old joined Palace ahead of 2021-22 and has made a brilliant first impression, scoring their first goals of the season in the draw with West Ham.

“He has got the ability to remain calm inside the box,” Palace boss Patrick Vieira said after the game. “He is a really good finisher, has got a lot of energy and works really hard for the team. When he is in that kind of situation he will score goals for us.”

As well as scoring a brace at the London Stadium, he also had a 96% pass accuracy, created one big chance and completed two successful dribbles.

We’ve rounded up a number of tweets from Palace and Chelsea fans that were impressed by his display.
