Chelsea player told he’s ‘irreplaceable’

BBC pundit, Glenn Murray has hailed the impact that Conor Gallagher has had at Chelsea this season.

The 23-year-old has played all but one of Chelsea’s 21 league games this season, even filling in as captain in the absences of Reece James and Ben Chilwell.

He was again at his brilliant best during the weekend, as Chelsea narrowly neat Fulham 1-0 at Stamford Bridge.

Cole Palmer provided Chelsea with the goal in the final moments of the first half when he stepped up to clinically convert a penalty kick for a foul on Raheem Sterling.

The Blues are also now up to 9th on the league table, and Murray thinks Gallagher has been at the core of Chelsea’s success this season.

Speaking on the BBC’s Match of the Day after the clash with Fulham, the ex-Brighton and Hove Albion forward said of Gallagher: “For me, he’s the heartbeat of Chelsea and probably irreplaceable and this wasn’t just today, it’s all season.”

We know there have been plenty news about Gallagher potentially being sold this January, but we also think that it would be very strange if the owners of the club still went ahead to let the midfielder go after all his efforts this season.
