With the Premier League set to return next Wednesday, the resumption of the season is just around the corner and many Chelsea fans will likely be excited to see Billy Gilmour’s name on the team sheet following a post on Instagram by the club.
The six-and-a-half-minute video was posted today celebrating his 19th birthday and features highlights from his performance against Liverpool in an FA Cup tie in March which earned him the Man of the Match award as the Blues came away with a 2-0 victory against the current league leaders.
The central midfielder has emerged onto the scene at the south London club this season and his form highlights why Frank Lampard has been trusting his youth, with his seven performances seeing the player pick up the Man of the Match award twice, including in the Premier League against Everton, and he has been a part of five wins, one draw and one loss.
The 19-year-old clearly has a lot of potential and the footage posted by the club will likely get supporters even more excited for his return to the side when the Premier League returns, especially judging by the glowing replies to his memorable display against the Reds.
Blues fans, should Gilmour start in the Premier League for the rest of the season? Comment below with your views!
