(Watch Video) Pochettino reacts to Gallagher’s late winner vs Leeds

Chelsea survived an FA Cup scare as Conor Gallagher came off the bench to score a last-minute winner and seal a 3-2 victory over Leeds at Stamford Bridge.

Gallagher is quickly becoming Chelsea’s go-to man. He runs into space on the edge of the box and receives the ball before spinning away from Junior Firpo.

The substitute lashed the ball past the visitors’ goalkeeper Illan Meslier to grab what had looked an unlikely victory for much of the game, never more so than when the Blues fell behind inside eight minutes to the first of two goals from Mateo Joseph.

After the match, Mauricio Pochettino said: “Yeah, of course, he is an important player and there is no doubt. We were talking at the beginning of the season, the contribution was fantastic for the team. I’m so happy for him.

“I said okay, don’t become top scorer, don’t score too much goals [smiles]. But the effort is there and the quality is there.”
