Crystal Palace star Conor Gallagher hilariously admitted that he couldn’t “feel my legs” after his stunning performance against Manchester City on Monday.

The 22-year-old England midfielder set Palace’s season record by covering an impressive 12.5km of the pitch in the 0-0 draw at Selhurst Park.

Gallagher, who has been linked with Chelsea in recent weeks, has covered more distance in 15 of his 25 Premier League starts than any other Palace player in the current campaign.

City produced a dominating performance against Palace, but Patrick Vieira’s men frustrated the defending champions of England by securing a point.

Speaking after the match, Gallagher praised his Palace teammates for their hard work and admitted he was “struggling to talk” after putting in a shift for his side.

“We will take a point against them and it was really deserved,” he told Sky Sports.

“I can’t feel my legs, every one of the boys worked so hard, we gave everything and I’m proud of the team. I’m struggling to talk and my legs have gone.

“You could see our game plan, to be organised and try to catch them on the counterattack. It was a very good performance from us.

“Before the game, we had the belief we would win. We have played well and got good results, but we’re happy with the point.

“They are one of the best teams in the world and to do that against them twice is amazing and shows what we can do as a team.”

Arsenal hero Vieira believes that Gallagher, along with Marc Guehi and Tyrick Mitchell, can book their place in Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the upcoming friendlies.

“They’ve been playing well enough for Crystal Palace and I’ve been really pleased with those performances,” the Palace boss said at last Thursday’s press conference.

“I think all the players that you mentioned are playing with a lot of confidence and with belief in themselves.

“They’re doing really well and now it’s for the [England] manager who will have to make those kinds of decisions but I think it’s really interesting for them when you mention their names.

“I think when they have their names on the table, I think that means those players are moving forward and this is really interesting.”
