Chelsea fans fume at Gallaghers utter stupidity after red against Leicester

Chelsea fans are pulling their hair out after Conor Gallagher's 'utter stupidity' red card against Leicester.

The attacker was given two yellow cards at Stamford Bridge and given his marching orders with only 27 minutes played.

The England star pulled a grimace as he walked off the pitch, knowing he had let his side down.

And supporters online were less than sympathetic to the player’s display. One scathed: “Vieira must be a genius for making Connor Gallagher look very good.” Another said: “Can't believe a prodigal player like Billy Gilmour is with the reserves for energy merchant Gallagher. Absolute clueless from Tuchel to play Connor in a pivot. You either play him as an advanced 8/10 or don't play him.”

A third stated: “Billy Gilmour is better than Connor Gallagher, but people won’t say the truth.” Someone wrote: “Conor Gallagher. Utter stupidity.”

A Newcastle fan then voiced his concerns: “Connor Gallagher sent off. Had a shocking start to the season. I dont know if that puts us off or makes Tuchel keen to get rid.”

Indeed, some reports have linked Gallagher with a move – even a loan deal – to Eddie Howe’s Newcastle, but the hierarchy there may be having some doubts after watching that display.

In any case, despite going down to ten men early on, the Blues found their way to three points on the day.

Raheem Sterling scored his first Chelsea goals in his fourth appearance for the side as they earned a much-needed three points. The former Manchester City attacker scored either side of Harvey Barnes’ consolation as the Blues leaped up the table to sixth place, on seven points.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel said after the encounter: “We played a little bit different against Tottenham. We attacked with a back four and played [defended] with a back five, so it was a bit of a hybrid position for Reece. He did very well and he can play both positions."
