Paul Merson has hailed Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher, currently on loan at Crystal Palace, as one of the best players in the Premier League this season.

Merson feels Gallagher has wrongly been overlooked for a first call up to England’s senior squad.

Merson said: Conor Gallagher should be in the England squad and it’s shocked me that Gareth Southgate has snubbed him.

“He’s been one of the best players in the country this season for Crystal Palace and I don’t think he could have done any more to earn a call up.

“Chelsea loanee Gallagher deserves to be in there and if he hasn’t got a call-up up now I don’t know how he ever will.

“He affects games every single time he plays and he’s completely and utterly on top of his game. I think he’s really unlucky.”
