Gallagher names who changed the game for Chelsea against Palace

Chelse star Gallagher reveals who changed the game for Chelsea against Palace

Conor Gallagher has hailed Mauricio Pochettino for helping Chelsea get past Crystal Palace with a 3-1 win at Selhurst Park on Monday night.

Palace had taken the lead after 30 minutes when Jefferson Lerma fired an unstoppable shot into the top right corner of Petrovic’s post.

Chelsea had all the possession during that half, but couldn’t make it count, as they failed to register a single shot on target before the break.

The second half was however much-better for Chelsea, who got on the scoresheet just two minutes after the restart, as Gallagher got on the end of a powerful cross from Malo Gusto to make it 1-1.

The Chelsea midfielder then scored another goal in the 91st minute to win it for his side, before Enzo Fernandez added a third from a counterattack just moments later.

After the game, Gallagher was full of praise for Pochettino, who he claims made some tactical adjustments to make the second half much-easier for Chelsea.

He told Sky Sports: “The gaffer gave us more structure in their half of the pitch to try and create more chances.

“It was really good from the manager and helped us play better in the second half.

“When we scored early we knew we had to go on and win it but it was getting later in the match.

“My calf started cramping up and then to get that goal. It was an amazing feeling and the lads are buzzing.”
