Conor Gallagher has been rested for Crystal Palace’s Premier League clash with Norwich City.

The 21-year-old, who is spending the season on loan from Chelsea, has been in sublime form for Palace this season with six goals in 17 league appearances so far.

But Gallagher was missing from the matchday squad on Tuesday, with Palace’s assistant manager Osian Roberts confirming that the club are trying to avoid fatigue with the midfielder.

‘The close proximity of games means that the combination of Covid, injuries and suspension, means we have to rotate a little bit,’ Roberts said before Palace’s clash with Norwich.

‘And obviously as well, we’ve got some freshness in the group and it’s important to try to utilise that.’

When asked specifically about Gallagher and whether Palace have any more positive Covid cases, Roberts replied: ‘There’s always testing going on and we’re always awaiting results.

‘In this particular case it’s making sure that we try to keep the group as fresh as possible.’
