The 21-year-old midfielder has been a revelation for the Eagles this season. In 15 Premier League appearances, he has contributed massively in terms of his output, notching six goals and three assists.
In fact, Gallagher's impressive run of form has brought speculation that European champions Chelsea could recall the player in January, with his goals being a huge factor in Palace's respectable league position.

That being said, it now looks like Gallagher will stay at Selhurst Park for the remainder of the 2021/22 campaign after it emerged that the midfielder has made enough appearances to prevent a January recall from being activated by Chelsea, report The Athletic.
The same can be said for Billy Gilmour, who is on a season-long loan at Premier League strugglers Norwich.
#CFC can no longer recall either Billy Gilmour or Conor Gallagher from their loans in January because they've played too many games & can't trigger the clause. I explain all with @MattWoosie here: https://t.co/XEiaUA45xo

He gave a cracking post-match interview after the game. "The last goal - that feeling is incredible," he told Sky Sports after the game.
"I love it. Them [Palace fans] just singing my name right now is a great feeling for me. They give me confidence which is amazing for a player."
