Chelsea youngster Billy Gilmour was brought on in the 68th minute in place of another Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi against Hull City in the FA Cup clash.

The young midfielder impressed in the middle of the park for Chelsea and he had a good as he controlled the midfield for Chelsea.

Gilmour revealed that the instruction from the manager was to keep passing the ball around.

“He just told me to go on, get my foot on the ball, play my passing and play my own game, and to go and enjoy it, as he always tells me,” he said, speaking to Chelsea TV.

“So I went out there and got on the ball and tried to calm things down and get it down on the deck, but it was a good game.”

Gilmour has been impressed with his performances this season and is working hard to get more playing time.

I’ve been training hard and working away and that was a good opportunity for me, and hopefully I have done well,” he said.

“I knew I was in the U23s at the start of the season, and I was hoping to be involved in a few first team games and I have been in training, and involved in a few games, so it has been really good.

“I just take what I can get. I’ve just come back from an illness and I’ve been getting my fitness back, but it’s good.”
