Frank Lampard has given a lot of Chelsea youngsters a chance to play for the first team. Billy Gilmour is by far the one that made the greatest impact. His MOTM performance against Liverpool shows the greatness in his football and all the potential that he has.
Billy has the ability to pick up the ball in very dangerous defensive situations and find a way to relieve the pressure off his team. He is usually acting as a pivot and sitting right in front of the CBs. Very Iniesta-like in his movement, Gilmour’s impact is considered by many as one of the most talented Chelsea midfielders Stamford Bridge witnessed during the past few years. Not bad for a kid that plays alongside Kante, Kovacic and Jorginho! Billy may be the deepest midfielder when he’s playing but that will not stop him from to join in attacks. You will regularly see him on the edge of the opposition penalty box. A move to Machester City has been talked about in British media but it is very unlikely that Gilmour makes a move to the Etihad especially that Chelsea/Lampard give more opportunities to players of his age than City/Guardiola, both Brahim Diaz and Foden can confirm this. Gilmour is young, Gilmour is good. Remember the name.
