According to Jamie Redknapp, Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour is very difficult to mark because he always finds space.

The 18 year won the man of the match award in Chelsea’s 4-0 demolition of Everton, despite the game being his first Premier League start for the Blues.

Redknapp told Sky Sports: “He’s very difficult to mark because he always finds space and good players like him always look like they have a bit more time than anyone else.

“His pass completion is really good, he’s got great energy so he can get around the pitch.

“The amount of times he just picked the right pass. He always looks forward. So many players want to play it safe, he looks forward.

“He’s a bit old school to a certain extent. I was so impressed with him. But I was also impressed with Ross Barkley and Mason Mount.

“Before the game we spoke about that midfield and thought they might have problems in there. They were all brilliant. This young man is probably thinking this Premier League is easy!”
