Chelsea took their preparation to the next step after a 7-1 romp of London side Queens Park Rangers.

Chelsea youngster Billy Gilmour impressed as he bagged a brace in the game. The 19-year-old continued his fine form from before the season’s suspension as he bossed the midfield against QPR. He also showed that he can come up with the goods by scoring a brace.

QPR boss Mark Warburton has hailed Chelsea sensation Billy Gilmour and compared the 19-year-old to ex-Arsenal wonderkid Jack Wilshere.

Warburton has hailed Billy Gilmour’s rapid development into one of the hottest young talents at Chelsea.

“I remember one of my first academy games with Watford was against Arsenal,” the 57-year-old told Sportsmail.

“We had a good team and we got beaten 9-0.

“I remember one of my first academy games with Watford was against Arsenal,” the 57-year-old told Sportsmail.

“We had a good team and we got beaten 9-0.

“I think it was Under-12 level and I saw this kid just run the show. It was Jack Wilshere.

“Whichever side he was on would have won the game 9-0. He was so far ahead of his time and so talented.

“Billy Gilmour is right up there with him. Jack has been unlucky in terms of being hit by injuries, but Billy is in a great environment.

“If you love the game of football, his development is great to see. It really is.”
