Not getting a place in Thomas Tuchel’s squad, Conor Gallagher decided to leave Chelsea in the transfer market last summer. He left for Crystal Palace on loan.
Playing under the polish of manager Patrick Vieira, Gallagher showed a pretty slick performance. The 21-year-old midfielder has made six goals and three assists from 16 matches in the Premier League.
His slick appearance made Gallagher into the England squad for the first time. He also made his debut in the match against San Marino last November.
Manchester City reportedly wanted to sell Bernardo Silva in the transfer market last summer. The arrival of Jack Grealish from Aston Villa was one of the triggers.
After his move did not materialize, Bernardo Silva was able to prove himself. The Portuguese player has performed brilliantly this season.
Silva has so far scored seven goals and one assist from 17 matches in the Premier League. His slick appearance led The Citizens to be at the top of the standings.

This season, Rowe has scored seven goals and provided two assists in 16 Premier League games. As a result, Arsenal managed to bring it to the top four in the Premier League standings.
Thanks to his slick appearance, Smith Rowe also made it into the England national team squad in the 2022 World Cup Qualification event. Mikel Arteta is lucky to have talented young players like Smith Rowe.
