Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley has revealed he wasn’t surprised to see Billy Gilmour put in a man of the match performance during Chelsea’s 2-0 victory over Liverpool on Tuesday night.

Gilmour’s appearance against Liverpool was only his fifth of the season for the Blues.

“He was brilliant today but it’s not a surprise to me because of the way he trains every day,” Barkley told BBC Sport post-match.

“I seen him last season and he was quality in training and he’s showed that with the little chances he’s had this season. Today was a top performance. Long may it continue.”
