Arsenal legend Ian Wright was full of praise for Chelsea loanee Conor Gallagher after his all-action display against Manchester City.
The young star is enjoying an excellent campaign so far on loan at Selhurst Park and did his parent club a big favour by scoring and assisting at the Etihad as Palace pulled off a shock 2-0 victory.
Gallagher robbed Aymeric Laporte of possession in the fifth minute before setting up Wilfried Zaha for the opener, while he netted with a ferocious strike late on to wrap up all three points.
As well as making an impact in the final third, Gallagher tracked back and worked extremely hard to harass and harry City’s players, with Wright singling out the youngster afterwards.
Speaking on Match of the Day about Gallagher’s involvement in the game, the former Arsenal hero, Ian Wright said:
“This is brilliant from Conor Gallagher, because he’s cutting off Laporte’s left foot, he wants him to go inside, bam! Pep’s saying they gave it away- no, Palace sucked them into that trap.
“Again you look at Conor Gallagher, he goes into a position where we know that Man City like to play in that area, Bernardo Silva’s there, cuts it out again. And they did that all day, the plan was perfect. He was everywhere, he was doing everything.”
