‘It’s imperative!’ – Chelsea fans agree with club’s decision amid midfielder injury crisis

Chelsea supporters have been reacting to the latest Conor Gallagher update – with the majority agreeing with the club’s decision.

football.london exclusively revealed that the 21-year-old midfielder is not expecting to return to the Blues in January from his loan spell at Crystal Palace despite the club’s injury crisis.

Gallagher has been in excellent form for the Eagles this season in the Premier League as he continues his development away from Chelsea.

With N’Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic, Jorginho and Ruben Loftus-Cheek all sidelined at the moment, there had been speculation that Chelsea could look to recall Gallagher from his loan spell at Selhurst Park, but that is not expected to happen, football.london understands.

The majority of Chelsea supporters, when reacting to the news on Reddit, agreed with the club’s decision to allow Gallagher to continue his fine progress under Patrick Vieira.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel, when asked about whether he would recall the England international from his loan spell in January, insisted that it had not yet crossed his mind.

Tuchel said in November: “Actually, I have not thought about it. I think it is important for him to be happy where he is and not change things.

“It is important to be calm, I feel him happy there and that he is having this impact at Crystal Palace. It is too early to talk about that in public before we talk with Conor himself and what his goals are.

“This will happen in the summer as we all agreed to the decision that we wanted to send him to Palace.

“He saw a possibility for him. I am not surprised the national coach loves him because I loved him from day one. Humble, nice, smile on his face and all the time ready to give everything, want to learn and improve.

“As a team-mate, I would have loved to play with him. It is a pleasure to know him, I am super happy that it has worked out so well. He needs to keep his feet on the ground.”

Chelsea are back in action on Saturday afternoon as they welcome Leeds United to Stamford Bridge and Tuchel will be desperate to end their two-match run without a win in all competitions, but they are set to be short of options in midfield yet again.

Reece James was used in the centre of midfield against Zenit Saint Petersburg in midweek and that could be an option for Tuchel again, with the likes of Kovacic, Kante, Jorginho and Loftus-Cheek all expected to be out again at the weekend.
