Chelsea loanee Gallagher quietly shining with continent-leading stats at West Brom


A pair of thoroughly impressive statistics surrounding the early-season displays of Chelsea loanee Conor Gallagher have piqued attentions across social media this week.

Blues talent

Gallagher, 20, is a product of Chelsea’s youth system.

The English youth international is an all-action midfielder, capable of lining out in many of an orthodox role, an advanced midfield position or even in front of the back-4.

And it is such versatility, amongst a host of other impressive traits, which have long seen Gallagher tipped as a potential star of the future at Stamford Bridge.

Amid the fierce competition for places in Frank Lampard’s squad, though, the last couple of seasons have seen the youngster farmed out on a series of loans.

First up was a spell with Charlton over the opening half of the 2019/20 campaign. Gallagher went on to line out for the Addicks on 26 occasions, notching an impressive 6 goals and 2 assists along the way.

His early displays even saw the now-20-year-old bag the award for the EFL Young Player of the Month:

Chelsea, though, eventually opted to recall Gallagher in January, before immediately sending their midfield starlet out on another loan, to Swansea City.

And Gallagher’s time at the Liberty Stadium proved equally productive, as the midfielder went on to notch a further 6 assists across 21 outings.

Baggies standout

It is the statistics surrounding Gallagher’s early form to start out the 2020/21 campaign, though, which showcase what an all-round talent the English U21 international truly is.

Since linking up with West Brom on a 3rd-straight loan away from Chelsea this past summer, Gallagher has managed 4 Premier League appearances.

This comes with the youngster having been ineligible to line out in the Baggies’ meeting with his parent club, before missing West Brom’s defeat to Southampton early last month through illness.

Across the outings he has appeared in, during which Gallagher racked up 90 minutes on all 4 occasions, though, the Surrey native has not at all struggled with the step up to Premier League quality.

In fact, as revealed by statisticians SofaScore, the Blues loanee is leading all players under the age of 21 in duels won per 90 minutes, across Europe’s top-5 leagues this season:

Not only that, but Gallagher is currently coming up with 5 tackles per 90, also the best of any U21 star across the continent’s top divisions:
