Billy Gilmour’s biggest game in his career will have to be the FA Cup clash against Liverpool, where he bossed the midfield against one of the biggest clubs in Europe at the moment, and was even named man of the match.

Gilmour was coming in for Jorginho and his performance was five-star, but the youngster has attributed it to the advice he was given by his manager, Frank Lampard.

“Leading up to the games, I was always thinking about what I’m going to do,” Gilmour told Sky Sports. “When the gaffer spoke to me, he said, ‘Go out and play your own game’. That gives you a lot of confidence to go out and do what you love.

“Playing in the game, there were parts that I felt were difficult but when I got on the ball, I felt good. I had players running off, so it was making it easy for me.

“It was a great, great game so I was happy to play well, and then receiving the man of the match, it was amazing.

“I never thought of it, I just wanted to play the game well, not muck up anything, and play the game right. To get first-team experience against Liverpool, the best team in the world right now, felt good.”
