It is a promising time to be a youngster at Chelsea at the moment.
Following the arrival of new manager Frank Lampard, it appears as though the club’s young prospects could play a more prominent role than in recent memory, with Mason Mount, Tammy Abraham, Reece James and Callum Hudson-Odoi all included in the first-team squad for next season.
Of course, there isn’t enough space for all of the promising academy talents who have come through the system at Stamford Bridge, and so some will still need to go out on loan to develop.
Charlton fans were impressed with the teenager and were quick to praise him afterwards. You can see some of the best reactions below.
Looked very good on the ball hopefully he starts next week

Done brilliant for a player that only signed Friday and played last 15 minutes and changed the game

If our expected incoming loan signings this week look as much of a threat and look as exciting as Conor Gallagher, then we are definitely going to shock and wind quite a few teams this season. #CAFC ?⚪ pic.twitter.com/zsY8PuegI9
