Chelsea midfielders Conor Gallagher and Billy Gilmour have a bright future ahead of them, and the duo are seen as the future of Chelsea’s midfield.

Gallagher has impressed massively while on loan with Crystal Palace, while Gilmour impressed for the Blues over the last two seasons and also impressed for Scotland. Following the sacking of Daniel Farke, Gilmour was brilliant in Norwich City’s 2-1 victory over Southampton.

Meanwhile, former Chelsea winger Shaun Wright-Phillips has hailed the quality of the duo and has advised them to remain with their current loan club.

“If I was either of those two players, especially playing the way that they are both playing. I think the best bet for them personally is to stay where they are,” he said in an exclusive interview with Metro.co.uk.

“Especially Conor, he’s loved at Crystal Palace, Patrick Vieira plays him all the time, he’s doing really really well. He’s getting assists and goals.

“Billy, since the sacking of the manager and Dean Smith’s gone in, apart from Scotland Billy is playing outstanding well. He played magnificently for Norwich on Saturday.

“The way he plays for Scotland, he’ll fit into a lot of Premier League teams’ starting XI’s every game and possibly some teams’ first name on the team sheet.

“For we while they’re playing so well and gaining all this Premier League experience and learning I think they should just stay there and get on with it.”
