Ex-Liverpool scout hails Chelsea midfielder Gallagher: Energy, creativity, goals

Former England defender Jonathan Woodgate admits he's a fan of Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher.

Woodgate, a former Bournemouth manager and Liverpool scout, says the Crystal Palace loanee is the signing of the season.

He told Ladbrokes: "The signing of the season so far, for me, has been Conor Gallagher to Crystal Palace from Chelsea.

"He's in my dream team as well actually. I love the way he plays. I watched a lot of him at Charlton under Lee Bowyer - he's got so much energy, he scores and creates goals. He's a top player.

"Patrick Vieira's style of play really suits Gallagher. He's come in and changed everything tactically and it's paid off for him, not least because of the impact Gallagher has had in that team since coming in.

"I really fancy Chelsea to win the Premier League this year, just because they barely concede. Once they get Romelu Lukaku firing on all cylinders, I reckon they're going to be a monster team."
