Speaking to Sky Sports after Crystal Palace’s 3-1 win over Everton, Conor Gallagher was filled with joy as he spoke to the media after the game.

The 21-year-old scored a brace against the Toffees, and his second strike was extraordinary.

Speaking to Sky Sports in his post-match interview, Gallagher claimed his superb late strike was the ‘perfect’ way to settle the game after a ‘fantastic’ team display.

“It was definitely the perfect way to settle it. I feel like it was a fantastic performance,” he said.

“Obviously, conceding the goal made it a nervy last 20 minutes, but defended brilliantly and the goal in the end just killed off the game. It was great.

‘This game was massive for us. We had lost the last three so to get three points today was really important.

“I felt like the performance today was brilliant and to get three points is unreal.”

Asked where his goalscoring form has come from, Gallagher joked: “Some good finishing!

“The last one, that feeling is incredible. I won the ball back and I had Christian right behind me, telling me to leave it and there was no chance I was leaving it.”
