Conor Gallagher believes he has ‘started well’ at West Brom this season following his summer loan move to The Hawthorns.
The Chelsea loanee has been one of the outstanding performers in recent games for the Baggies and his recent form was rewarded with a call up to the England under 21s.
The 20-year-old has also admitted that results need to improve at Albion as the club find themselves winless after eight Premier League games.
Goal quote Gallagher as saying, “I will always give 100 per cent, no matter what. Whether it is West Brom or Chelsea, I will always give my best for the team.
“I am just happy to be playing in the Premier League. I am very happy at West Brom and excited to play in more games. I have started well at West Brom even though results haven’t gone our way, so I just need to keep that going and stay consistent. Hopefully, the results there will then improve.”
Gallagher has been the standout performer in the Baggies’ last two league outings against Fulham and Tottenham.
Despite the disappointing 2-0 loss to the Cottagers, Slaven Bilic told Sky Sports that Gallagher was one of only two players who showed ‘proper commitment’ for Albion.
In that game, the 20-year-old made more tackles than anyone else on the pitch according to Premier League Statman, making nine tackles and eight ball recoveries.
Several Baggies players have looked out of their depth this season but Gallagher isn’t one of them despite it being his first experience of top-flight football.
Since starting against Burnley, Gallagher has played every minute of Premier League action Albion have faced and he has proved that he could be key in his current side’s bid to avoid an immediate return to the Championship.
Baggies fans will be hoping that Gallagher performs consistently for the rest of the year and if he does, he could be in with a shout for Albion’s player of the season.
