The latest on Conor Gallagher’s availability for Crystal Palace vs West Ham

 

Crystal Palace assistant manager Osian Roberts has, on Friday, hinted that star midfielder Conor Gallagher could be forced to sit out the club’s meeting with West Ham United.

Palace, of course, are primed to return to action tomorrow evening.

As part of another Covid-19-hit Premier League gameweek the Eagles will welcome the aforementioned West Ham to Selhurst Park, for a highly-anticipated London derby showdown.

Patrick Vieira’s men head into proceedings with their tails up, on the back of a much-needed return to winning ways last time out.

On the back of just a solitary win from their prior seven, the south Londoners made short work of relegation-battling Norwich City on Tuesday night, to climb back up to 11th in the English top-flight table.

‘We’ll see…’

As such, despite the impending absence of manager Patrick Vieira from the touchline, Palace will no doubt be confident in their chances of making it two wins from two on Saturday, at the expense of David Moyes’ high-flying Hammers.

Any such hopes, however, could yet be dampened by the absence of one key member of the Eagles’ squad.

The player in question? Conor Gallagher.

Midfield dynamo Gallagher, who has of course enjoyed a scintillating campaign on loan at Selhurst Park to date, sat out Palace’s meeting with Norwich in midweek, amid non-confirmed rumours of a positive test for Covid-19.

In turn, speaking to the media on Friday evening, Eagles assistant boss Osian Roberts was inevitably drawn on the status of the English international for Saturday.

And the tactician went on to confirm that Gallagher remains a doubt, ahead of a late pre-match fitness test:
