Chelsea Fans Are Raving About Billy Gilmour After Scot’s League Cup Display

Chelsea fans are raving about Scottish midfielder Billy Gilmour after the teenager’s performance in the Carabao Cup tonight.

Having made his Premier League debut as a substitute in the 2-2 draw with Sheffield United last month, 18-year-old Gilmour was handed an opportunity from the start against Grimsby Town in tonight’s third-round tie, and he certainly didn’t disappoint.

In the end, the class of Frank Lampard’s side well and truly shone through against their League Two opponents, with the Blues recording a crushing 7-1 victory, but that didn’t stop Gilmour from stealing the show in the middle of the park.

The ex-Rangers man’s weight of passes, reading of the game and all-round demeanour seems to have won him plenty of fans down south tonight:

He’s obviously still very young but is Billy Gilmour the superstar player Scottish football has been trying to produce for the last two decades?
