Chelsea legend Pat Nevin said Gallagher is way beyond his midfield rivals; Here is everything he said.
Conor Gallagher is way beyond the league of many of these midfielders in the EPL now and people are not looking closely to this fact rather criticizing him for being the best…
He stated: “That was his sixth cap for England, which isn’t bad for a 23-year-old who was ‘only’ a loan player at Crystal Palace just nine short months ago. It is pretty clear why Gareth Southgate is as keen on him as Graham Potter is, the work rate and selflessness are off the scale. If you need someone to cover ground, go from box to box, make tackles, be a threat in the opposition box one minute and making superb defensive blocks in his own area the next, then Conor is your man.
“Conor is a very good technical player. To be fair, there are others who are better, but his attitude allows him to cruise by them when squads are announced, simply because of the energy and willingness to give every bit of it every time he plays. Scotland have a player like that in John McGinn, who we will see at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening with his Aston Villa team mates.
“Conor rarely if ever seems to tire, oh yes and he can score the odd goal for us too, the last-minute winner against Palace will be one he will never forget!”
