Alan Shearer hails Chelsea player for going from strength strength

Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer has hailed Chelsea loanee Conor Gallagher from going from strength to strength after his impressive performance against West Ham.

Gallagher scored two goals for his loan club Crystal Palace as they drew 2-2 at West Ham last weekend.

“With two well-taken goals against an in-form Hammers side, the impressive Gallagher showed he is going from strength to strength,” Shearer wrote on the Premier League’s official website.

Crystal Palace boss Patrick Vieira has also been impressed with the midfielder.

“He has the ability to remain calm in the box, he’s a really good finisher,” Vieira said.

“He has a lot of energy and works hard for the team. When he’s in this kind of situation he scores goals.

“Conor had a good loan last year. He did well. He’s a player who needs to play week in and week out and coming to us was a smart move for him.

“We will give him time to keep playing and keep performing. Today he showed a lot of quality on both sides of the game.”
