Former Leeds United midfielder Carlton Palmer believes Chelsea loanee Conor Gallagher is a better footballer than Mason Mount. Gallagher is currently on loan at fellow Premier League side Crystal Palace, where he plays under Patrick Vieira. Speaking in regards to Conor Gallagher's talents, Palmer said the following to GIVEMESPORT:

“Mason Mount’s been playing regularly in the Chelsea side. In my honest opinion, I think Conor’s a better player than Mason Mount, and I like Mason. But I think Conor’s a better player than him.”

Conor Gallagher has had a meteoric rise since his loan move to Crystal Palace. The 22-year-old midfielder has contributed eight goals and five assists in 30 appearances for the Eagles across all competitions.

Gallagher's good form this season earned him a call-up to the England squad from manager Gareth Southgate. He has so far earned three England caps, including a start against Switzerland in the recently concluded international break. Gallagher would go on to claim man-of-the-match in their 2-1 win over Switzerland at Wembley Stadium.

The 22-year-old midfielder played alongside Mason Mount through the middle. He also made a substitute appearance against Cote d'Ivoire in the following friendly match.

According to the Evening Standard, Thomas Tuchel is set to utilize Conor Gallagher in Chelsea's first-team next season. The 22-year-old midfielder will be allowed to challenge the likes of N'Golo Kante and Jorginho for a place in the midfield.

Chelsea's youth academy is responsible for producing some of the most talented footballers in recent times. The likes of Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount and Reece James have all contributed towards the Blues' recent success under Thomas Tuchel.
