I Have Finally Found Declan Rice alternative at Chelsea, Thomas Tuchel reveals
Despite not playing a single minute for Chelsea this season, Conor Gallagher has been one of the club’s best performers.
Chelsea stayed atop the Premier League table this weekend with a 3-0 victory over Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.
Within the first 30 minutes, Antonio Rudiger and N’Golo Kante had placed the Blues in command, before Christian Pulisic’s second-half strike sealed the win.
Thomas Tuchel is hell-bent on adding a Premier League trophy to his Champions League victory from last season, and his first 12 games have gone just as planned.
One of his most valuable assets has been the depth of his squad. If someone is wounded or suspended, someone else is ready to step in, ensuring that the quality does not suffer.
However, it might be claimed that Chelsea’s player of the season isn’t even a Chelsea player, as Conor Gallagher continues to shine for Crystal Palace on loan.
He picked up another assist on Saturday, setting up Christian Benteke for his second goal of the season against Burnley, and anticipation for the 21-year-future old’s continues to rise.
In fact, with that assist, he now has seven direct goal involvements in the Premier League, more than any other English midfielder this season. Declan Rice, Jack Grealish, and Phil Foden aren’t the only ones.
Rice has been a long-term Blues goal, but with West Ham apparently wanting upwards of £80 million for his services, Chelsea fans have been debating Gallagher’s talent and current value following the release of the recent stat.
“What an incredible run of form he’s had!” rolledoff exclaimed.
