How far will Chelsea go? This is the question we ask ourselves every time we watch the Blues play in the Premier League. The trip to Crystal Palace also looks complicated for the team led by Mauricio Pochettino, who fielded the same eleven against Aston Villa in the cup. A winning eleven that did not shine at Selhurst Park. We had to wait until the 45th minute to see a Chelsea strike, signed by Gallagher! Allowing for a lack of aggression in midfield, the Blues trailed 1-0 following a clear strike from Lerma (30th) into the top corner from Petrovic.

So Mauricio Pochettino decided to launch Christopher Naccu as soon as he returned from the locker room, to energize a completely neutral attacking field. The Frenchman wasn’t involved in the equalizer almost immediately, but it was his compatriot Malo Gusto who was responsible for sending the perfect cross to Conor Gallagher, who took possession with a touch (1-1.47). Chelsea were more dangerous than in the first half, with good enthusiasm. But redemption came from Gallagher, again, who this time collected a cross from Cole Palmer on the edge of the area (1-2, 91st). Enzo Fernandez sealed the deal immediately on a simple counter-attack led by Palmer (1-3, 90+4th). On loan to Crystal Palace in 2021-2022, English midfielder Conor Gallagher has propelled his former side into the Premier League standings, where Chelsea are one place up (10th).
