Vieira insists England call-up is ‘too soon’ for Palace man

Crystal Palace manager Patrick Vieira has said that an England call-up for on-loan Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher would be “too early” for the youngster.

The Selhurst Park club grabbed their first win of the season last weekend against Tottenham, beating their London rivals 3-0.

Gallagher was excellent on the day, following up on his two-goal performance the matchday prior against West Ham.



His stellar start to the season has .

The youngster spent last term on loan at West Brom where he did well but the Baggies were unfortunately relegated.

And his manager for 2021/22 has addressed the calls for Gallagher to play for the Three Lions.

“This is the biggest problem in our world, when we have one or two performances, we always think that he deserves a national call and I still believe that he needs to be more consistent in his performance,” Vieira told his pre-match press conference on Friday.

“I think he has abilities but I believe, as well, it is too early for the call for him.

“He still has to improve but all the credit to  because he’s not just a really good footballer, he’s a good human being and he’s a really good person as well.

“We’ve been working with him and talking with him and I think his time will come.

“But first what he needs to do is to perform on a consistent basis to allow him to go higher to the international level, but he needs to perform well week in week out with us, with the Under-21s and that will allow him to go to the national team, but at the moment I think his focus has to be with us.

“How can he repeat these kind of performances that he’s had over the last couple of matches.”

Gallagher has represented England at U17 all the way through to the U21s.

Next up for Palace is Liverpool away on Saturday afternoon.

Leeds boss Bielsa ‘worried’ by five-game winless run

Leeds United head coach Marcelo Bielsa is ‘worried’ by the Whites’ start to the season which sees them sit 16th in the Premier League.

The Yorkshire club have started 2021/22 with three draws and two losses from their first five league matches.

Their most recent encounter was on Friday night against Newcastle United. The match finished 1-1 after Raphinha opened the scoring for Bielsa’s men 13 minutes into the game.



His fine goal was cancelled out by a sublime Allan Saint-Maximin strike in the 44th minute.

Speaking to , Bielsa said: “We had sufficient chances to go in at the break with a bigger margin but we didn’t score in proportion to the amount of chances we created.

“Yes, yes, of course it [the winless run] worries me.

“We were missing some efficiency and capitalising on the chances that we had. We had a lot of possession, perhaps we could have created even more danger especially in the second half.”

Bielsa also told : “It is a game we could have won. It wouldn’t have been strange if we scored one or two goals more.

“The construction of the offensive game was good. We had to adapt to a great centre forward like the number 10 [Saint-Maximin]. I think in some way our defensive game was sufficient.

“The results are not great, from 15 points to have only three is too little.”

Leeds went into the match without three centre-back options. , meanwhile, Diego Llorente and Robin Koch were out injured.

This forced Bielsa to start Luke Ayling in the centre of defence with Liam Cooper.

Ayling was substituted in the 89th minute after picking up an injury, which leaves the Argentinian even shorter for options in defence.

“Let’s hope it’s nothing that prevents him from playing because it will be the fourth option at centre back that we’ll lose,” he told Sky Sports on Ayling’s injury.

Next up for is a Carabao Cup tie against Fulham at Craven Cottage on Tuesday evening before returning to Elland Road next Saturday to host West Ham.
