Chelsea boss Frank Lampard admits he has been impressed with the attitude of Billy Gilmour during training.

According to Lampard, Gilmour lights up training with his energy, quality and angles.

Gilmour made his full senior debut last week as Chelsea beat Grimsby Town 7-1 in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday evening.

“Billy was brilliant the other day [against Grimsby Town],” Lampard told Chelsea TV.

“I was delighted with the reaction Billy got during the game and that will make him so good.

“Every training session Billy takes part in he lights it up with energy, quality and angles.

“He’s like an old-fashioned midfield player.

“I know modern midfield players do it, he’s constantly making angles, berating people even though he’s a young boy, personality in the way he plays, never scared to receive the ball.

“He’s got a really big chance.”
