How Conor Gallagher’s league stats compare with Mason Mount’s

After impressing on loan at Crystal Palace, Chelsea academy graduate Conor Gallagher looks set to return to Stamford Bridge next season. 

Gallagher scored two Premier League goals on loan at West Brom in 2020-21 but has taken his game to another level under Patrick Vieira at Palace.

The 21-year-old will be hoping to follow in the footsteps of Mason Mount, who made his Chelsea debut in 2019 and led them to Champions League glory last season.

“If I copy that pathway I’ll be buzzing,” Gallagher said in August 2021. “That’s definitely what I want. What he has achieved already is amazing. “He is a top player and a top guy as well.

“Fair play to him and the other youngsters who have done it through Chelsea and England. I hope I can do that.”

But the two England international’s could be in direct competition for a place in Thomas Tuchel’s starting line-up next season.

We’ve compared Gallagher’s Premier League record in 2021-22 with Mount’s to see who comes out on top.
