Gallagher, who is a Blues academy product, is someone Chelsea fans are extremely excited to have back.

He has scored eight goals and five assists so far this season in a Palace shirt, with many boldly comparing his style of play to Frank Lampard.

Of course, there’s a lot to love about Gallagher’s game when it comes to his technique, game intelligence and goalscoring prowess.

However, his relentless energy and pressure on the ball is arguably the most memorable thing you take away from watching him in the flesh.

He looks tailor-made to join Thomas Tuchel’s side next season so it’s an absolutely vital summer ahead where he needs to impress.
