EPL: Ian Wright rates Chelsea loanee Gallagher’s performance as Crystal Palace defeated Man City

Arsenal hero, Ian Wright, has commented on Chelsea loanee Conor Gallagher’s performance following Crystal Palace’s 2-0 victory over Manchester City on Saturday.

Wright said that Gallagher was everywhere during the encounter at Etihad, adding that the midfielder was doing everything for Crystal Palace against Pep Guardiola’s men.

A goal from Wilfried Zaha and a ferocious strike from Gallagher gave Patrick Vieira’s side all three points against Man City.

Speaking on Match of the Day about Gallagher’s display, 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.”
