    Chelsea: Conor Gallagher decision costly as Crystal Palace return tinged with sadness

    Returning to Selhurst Park tomorrow afternoon, Conor Gallagher would be forgiven for wondering how different things might look were he plying his trade there full-time this season. There was strong desire from Crystal Palace to bring the midfielder back to the club after his fine loan spell last term, but Gallagher, understandably, was determined to fight for his place at one of the country’s leading clubs and Chelsea were content to let him. It is far too early to say whether staying at Stamford Bridge was the right move for the 22-year-old’s career long-term, particularly as he is already working under a different manager to the one that kept him at the club in the summer.
