Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour has revealed he’s hoping to emulate former Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas.

Gilmour hailed Fabregas range of passing and believing it is something he should try and replicate.

“When I was watching Cesc, it was all about his forward passes to the striker, whether that was a lofted pass, a clipped ball or just a simple through ball,” Gilmour told Chelsea’s official website.

“He was one of the best at doing that, especially at Chelsea, and I want to add that more to my own game, but it comes first of all from being aware of what’s around you.

“He speaks a lot about the boys because he obviously used to be here but it’s always nice seeing a top midfielder like that comment on your game.”
