Chelsea boss Frank Lampard compared Billy Gilmour to Jorginho after his man of the match performance in Chelsea’s 4-0 victory over Everton on Sunday.

According to Lampard, Gilmour is similar to Jorginho due to his ability to receive the ball in difficult areas.

Lampard said: “Billy is receiving the ball in difficult areas on the pitch where if you don’t move it quickly you don’t get the rhythm of our play. And secondly if you give it away there it is dangerous, so you need confidence to do that, and Jorginho has it and Billy has it.

“One of the most pleasing things is that Billy showed that in the first half and then when he stepped up and played as one of the higher midfield players later in the game, he instantly took it on board, arriving in their box and playing balls higher up the pitch and he showed he can do both [positions] which is a great thing for me when I am thinking about how the midfield looks at times.”
