Watch: Conor Gallagher Wins It At The Death For Chelsea Against Former Club Crystal Palace

Conor Gallagher has scored his first goal for the Blues and what it a goal it was to win the game.

Chelsea beat Crystal Palace 2-1 on Saturday afternoon but they did not do it the easy way after trailing in the first half from an Odsonne Edouard goal.

The Blues hit back with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who got his first goal for the club, before late on substitute Conor Gallagher came on and hit a rocket into the top corner to win his current team the game.

The 22-year-old spent last term out at Selhurst Park, where he scored eight goals in thirty-nine appearances.

Out of respect for the Eagles, Gallagher did not celebrate the strike but it did not affect the emotions of his teammates who were delighted to get the late winner.

It was a lovely nutmeg from the Englishman before he laid the ball out and hit it right into the far top corner, leaving Vicente Guaita not a chance in getting to it.
