Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has raved about Chelsea-owned Crystal Palace midfielder Conor Gallagher on the club’s official website.
Gallagher is set to start for Palace in the Premier League game against Liverpool away from home at Anfield on Saturday afternoon.
The 21-year-old midfielder joined the Eagles on loan from Chelsea in the summer transfer window.
Liverpool boss Klopp is a big fan of the England Under-21 international and has raved about him.
Klopp told Liverpool’s official website about Gallagher: “[Conor] Gallagher – I’m not sure you can still say he’s a talent when he plays for [England] U21s, but he’s a really, really good player, and then the third position [James] McArthur or whoever can play there.”
Liverpool should be wary
It seems that Liverpool manager Klopp is already wary of Gallagher, who has started the season on fire.
The 21-year-old has already established himself as a big player for Palace manager Patrick Vieira.
The Palace no.23 has scored two goals and provided one assist in three Premier League appearances for the London club so far this season.
Liverpool are in good form at the moment, but Palace showed against Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League last weekend what they are capable of.
The Merseyside club will have to pay special attention to Gallagher if they are to pick up all three points from the Premier League match against Palace this weekend.
