Chelsea youngster Conor Gallagher is billed for greatness in his football career, and the 20-year-old is currently on loan with West Bromwich Albion.

Gallagher spent last season on loan with Swansea and did well, and now West Brom skipper Jake Livermore is expecting him to excel while on loan with the Baggies.

Chelsea fans and even Frank Lampard have high expectations for Gallagher, who has featured five times for the Baggies this season.

“Conor’s been fantastic for me,” said Jake Livermore

“His energy levels and quality in training every day is a steal for us and I’m tipping him to be a top, top player.

“He wants to learn and has great ability going forward, but on the flip side he’s more than responsible at tracking back and he’s just got bags of energy.

“The athleticism that he’s got is what the game is becoming now and he’s got that in abundance.

“He’s been very impressive and I think he can be a really important player for us this season.”
