18 year old Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour made his full Chelsea debut in the 7-1 thrashing of Grimsby on Wednesday night at Stamford Bridge.
Deployed in a deep-lying central midfield role, Gilmour was one of our best players against Grimsby. He was controlled, consistent and creative in possession, and certainly not afraid to get stuck in against players bigger and older than him.
Gilmour’s passing stats against Grimsby were very impressive.
Gilmour was the second best player on the pitch for successful passes (89), pass completion rate (93 per cent), and key passes (four).
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard was also impressed with Gilmour’s performance against Grimsby.
“The young players have deserved to get into the team,” Lampard said.
“From Billy Gilmour it was a fantastic full debut, he ran the game from midfield.”
