West Brom fans have been singing the praises of midfielder Conor Gallagher after the loanee impressed yet again on Monday evening.

Gallagher, 20, made his second Premier League appearance for the Baggies as he played all 90 minutes of the 0-0 draw with Brighton at the AMEX Stadium.

Slaven Bilic signed the England Under-21s international on a season-long loan from Chelsea on September 17 and after a drawn-out bedding-in process at The Hawthorns, the midfielder is finally beginning to show his worth to the side.

Stats by WyScout show that Gallagher completed 86 per cent of his passes, completed three of the four dribbles he attempted and registered a shot at goal.

He also did a great job defensively as the Chelsea loanee made nine recoveries, five interceptions and won two of the three aerial duels he challenged for.

Gallagher is the midfield machine that Albion fans have so desperately wanted at the club since winning promotion and supporters were out in force on Twitter on Monday to applaud the 20-year-old’s performance.

Here is a selection of their tweets:

It’s two Premier League appearances and two Premier League draws for Gallagher since arriving at West Brom.

He’ll want to get that first league win for the club as soon as possible and with a couple more favourable fixtures on the horizon, it shouldn’t be too long before that happens.

Although results have been poor since the new season kicked off last month, there have been plenty of positives.

And Gallagher’s performances in his first two appearances for Albion are one of the biggest plus-points to take into a run of matches that sees Bilic’s side take on Fulham, Tottenham, Manchester United and Sheffield United in the coming weeks.
