Crystal Palace boss Patrick Vieira has admitted it’s a joy to work with Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher, who is on a season-long loan deal at Crystal Palace.

Gallagher scored his 3rd Premier League goal of the season and also provided his 2nd Premier League assist of the season as Crystal Palace beat Manchester City 2-0 on Saturday.

“Working with Conor, it’s a joy really because he is a player who wants to fill his potential, he wants to learn and he wants to work hard and he’s bringing this energy to the team,” he said.

“The staff and myself are really enjoying working with him. He comes in every morning with a big smile on his face and is leaving the training ground with a big smile as well.

“When he’s on the field he’s working hard every single day and he is a player that wants to fulfil his potential and I think that is a really important tool to have as a player, to improve yourself and keep challenging yourself.”
