Billy Gilmour Named on Chelsea Bench For Sheffield United Game

Billy Gilmour Named on Chelsea Bench For Sheffield United Game

Billy Gilmour has been named on the Chelsea bench for their clash with Sheffield United this afternoon.

The 18-year-old midfielder has been rewarded for some fine form with the club’s academy with a place in Frank Lampard’s squad.

And that will excite Scotland fans who want to see Gilmour make the breakthrough at Stamford Bridge.

Gilmour is actually the only out-and-out central midfielder on the Chelsea bench and could be a contender to get on if Lampard wants to change up any of Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic or Ross Barkley:

Chelsea beat Norwich 3-2 at Carrow Road last week and will want to follow that up with three points at home to newly-promoted Sheffield today.

Gilmour is yet to make his Chelsea debut after making the move from Rangers to Stamford Bridge two years ago.

He’s been a mainstay in the youth team over the last two seasons and may have been eyeing a loan away this summer.

But so far that hasn’t materialised and it looks like Lampard is keen on involving him in the first team.
