Following Chelsea’s 2-0 FA Cup victory over Liverpool on Tuesday night at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard couldn’t speak highly enough of young Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour.

The 18 year old picked up the man of the match award after a strong display in midfield for the Blues.

“What an incredible performance for a young player,” Lampard said.

“He was a calm head in that first five or 10 minutes. He’s a throwback of a midfielder to when I grew up.

“Can you put your foot in? Yes. Can you make angles to play the passes? Yes.

“He’s only slight in stature but he’s huge in personality.

“He deserves people to talk about him after a performance like that.”
