Chelsea fans were on Saturday hailing their latest academy star Conor Gallagher after a standout display for West Brom.

The young midfielder is spending the season on loan at the Baggies and has been one of their star performers during a tough campaign fighting relegation.

Gallagher has already scored twice, in 20 games, and added a second assist of the season as West Brom earned a rare, and narrow, win over Brighton.

The 21-year-old's corner delivery was headed home by Kyle Bartley as West Brom held on to beat the Seagulls, who saw a goal controversially disallowed and missed two penalties.

Plenty of people sat up and noticed Gallagher's display, including Chelsea fans, who are getting excited by the prospect of another young English talent in the team, comparing him to fellow midfielder Mason Mount.

If whipping in a superb corner delivery wasn't enough, Gallagher also pole-axed referee Lee Mason during the game.

A busy day for the youngster, then.
