Conor Gallagher in Fantasy Premier League
In FPL, there are usually a lot of mid-price midfielders that you can trust and get the points out of them. Conor Gallagher is another one of them. In fact, with the price tag of just £6.5m, he is a bargain to have in team.
Technically, he is a sharp player with great game awareness and vision. Very difficult to dispossess because he rarely makes solo attempts and understands that football is more of a team game. But he does take his chances and give the opponents a run for the ball when the opportunity is there to attack.
He is currently the top scoring midfilder among all Crystal Palace midfielders. A great choice to have in an FPL team.
If you are looking to bet on a mid-price midfielder in FPL, Conor Gallagher surely is a great option to look at in the mid price range.
