Gallagher's heroics propel Chelsea to victory, Pochettino hails midfielder's invaluable contribution

Posted : 13 February 2024

Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino lauded Conor Gallagher as an invaluable asset following his instrumental performance that propelled Chelsea to victory against Crystal Palace, with Gallagher netting two crucial goals in the 3-1 win, overturning Jefferson Lerma's opener and sealing the victory with a late strike from Enzo Fernandez.


Gallagher's outstanding display comes amid speculation about his future at the club, with reports suggesting potential moves away from Chelsea. Pochettino, however, emphasized Gallagher's unwavering commitment to the team, praising his contributions in both offensive and defensive aspects of the game, highlighting his indispensable role within the squad.


Despite being linked with a £50 million move and having just one year left on his contract, Gallagher has expressed his desire to stay at Chelsea, a sentiment echoed by Pochettino, who believes the midfielder remains dedicated to the club where he has honed his skills since childhood.


Gallagher's goals against his former loan club marked his first Premier League goals of the season, underscoring his significance to Pochettino's plans, having made 23 league appearances and even captaining the side during Reece James' absence earlier in the season.


Former Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech commended Gallagher's leadership qualities, noting his unwavering dedication and commitment to the club's success, identifying him as a potential future captain due to his exemplary work ethic and devotion to the team's cause.


The victory against Crystal Palace marks Chelsea's second consecutive win, following their triumph over Aston Villa in the FA Cup, with Gallagher's goals providing momentum ahead of challenging fixtures against Liverpool and Arsenal, as the midfielder emphasizes the importance of maintaining consistency and continuous improvement in upcoming matches.
