My View: Conor Gallagher flourishing under Mauricio Pochettino at Chelsea
Conor Gallagher could have left Chelsea in the summer transfer window, but the 23-year-old England international midfielder is now flourishing under head coach Mauricio Pochettino.
The youngster has established himself as one of the first names on the Chelsea teamsheet when he is fit and available.
Against Tottenham Hotspur in the London derby, Gallagher did not always have the best of times in the middle of the park, but he kept pushing and was always a presence.
No one can doubt the endeavour that the midfielder showed against Spurs.
Gallagher has given three assists in 11 Premier League matches for Chelsea so far this season.
I believe that Chelsea are
a better team with Gallagher in it.
