Gilmour has managed to break into Chelsea first time after impressing Frank Lampard on multiple occasions
Billy Gilmour is just 19-year-old and already bringing competition to senior members of the Chelsea squad.
Earlier before now, the youngster saw his place in the first team hampered by an injury as he had to be out for a while so as to recover.
On returning Gilmour fought his place back into the squad, making his second start for the first team against Morecambe.
Arguably, if Hudson-Odoi wasn’t named the man of that very match, it would have been Gilmour.
Contributing awesomely to Chelsea’s midfield, the Blues cruised pass the League 2 side.
It would definitely come as an ear warmer to learn that Gilmour learns from one of Chelsea former midfielders.
Speaking on who he watches play most time, Gilmour immediately credited the intelligence of Cesc Fabregas whenever the Spaniard is in Chelsea’s center.
“When I was watching Cesc, it was all about his forward passes to the striker,” Gilmour told the club’s website. “Whether that was a lofted pass, a clipped ball or just a simple through ball.
“He was one of the best at doing that, especially at Chelsea, and I want to add that more to my own game, but it comes first of all from being aware of what’s around you.
“He speaks a lot about the boys because he obviously used to be here but it’s always nice seeing a top midfielder like that comment on your game.”
With 92% pass accuracy, Gilmour made 110 touches and completed 8/9 long balls during Chelsea’s game against Morecambe.
The youngster could likely be in Chelsea’s midfield when they battle Fulham during the weekend.
