Chelsea denied a request from Crystal Palace to play their on loan midfielder Conor Gallagher in the FA Cup semi – finals later this month..
It appears like quite a cursory attempt by Palace – they have to have understood that Chelsea will say no to their star Premier League player being ready to play against the team who own him.
Thomas Tuchel’s staff needed to increase however.
Chelsea were in the center of one of the more prominent versions of this situation when Atletico Madrid asked that On-Loan goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois have the ability to play in a Champions League semi final against his parent club Chelsea.
Ultimately, he did play in that match, and Chelsea went on to lose. Let us hope that Chelsea can beat Palace without their excellent box – to – box man who’ll hopefully be playing for the Blues in the future.
