In recent seasons, Chelsea have preferred to let their youngsters go out on loan. They want the players to experience a higher level of football and therefore enhance their ability. In terms of finance, some of those deals usually bring the club revenue and cut the wage bill short. This has become a very familiar scene at the London-based club which saw several names leaving the club either for a short period or on a permanent basis.

Conor Gallagher is one of those names who have been through that process this summer as he arrived at Charlton on loan. A U17 World Cup winner along with the likes of Jadon Sancho, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Phil Foden, he was still playing for Chelsea’s youth team before this summer window.

But at Charlton, he has lifted off after a streak of impressive performances for the newly-promoted side in the Championship. This tactical analysis scout report will provide an analysis of Gallagher’s performance at the London-based club up to now. Furthermore, using statistics and footage, we will point out his standout attributes and how has he influenced the team’s tactics.
