Chelsea youngster Billy Gilmour already has a Chelsea nickname after impressing in Chelsea’s last two games.

The 18 year old midfielder earned the man of the match awards after impressive performances against Liverpool and Everton.

Gilmour’s Chelsea nickname is “Billy-esta”, inspired by Barcelona legend Andres Iniesta, who won nine La Liga titles and four Champions Leagues with the Spanish side.

Meanwhile, Manchester United legend Roy Keane has sent warning to Gilmour.

Speaking on Sky Sports, the former midfielder said: “There’s plenty of pitfalls ahead for him of course, if he gets carried away. He’s playing like he would in the streets with his mates.

“I suppose the advice – not that I would give him, but the people around him – is leave him alone. Leave him just to get on with it.

“Sometimes you get surrounded by some of the wrong people. Sometimes some of the coaching staff at the club can try and give him too much information.

“I remember working with Brian Clough when I was coming through as a young player, they almost just left me alone, just learn your trade, keep going.

“Give snippets of information, but don’t give too much information because he looks a clever kid, he looks intelligent.

“Just let him get on with it. But obviously be careful of who he surrounds himself with in terms of agents and women and all that type of thing.”
