Chelsea boss Frank Lampard may have to look on to young midfielder Billy Gilmour after a shortage of midfielders in his team.
Midfield ace Jorginho is suspended for our next two league games and even the Champions League, while N’Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic are both injured. Ruben Loftus-Cheek is only just returning from injury, and Lampard has a big call to make ahead of this weekend’s massive clash against a resurgent Everton side.
For the 18-year-old Gilmour, he has revealed that he has been learning from Kovacic and Jorginho and is ready if his manager needs him.
“Hopefully,” he says when asked if he’s ready to be called upon in the absence of Jorginho and Kovacic.
“I have been learning off them [Kovacic and Jorginho] in training and watching them in games and to play alongside both of them was brilliant, but hopefully Kova is back and fit for the weekend, and we will see how it goes from there.”
Gilmour was named the man of the match for his performance against Liverpool.
