Chelsea fans were impressed with the performance of Billy Gilmour in the 2-1 victory over Manchester City on Saturday.

The teenager looked a little rusty in the first half but had a much better second half.

Gilmour completed 93% of his passes against Manchester City, created 2 chances and completed 2 of the 3 long balls he attempted.

Check out reaction of fans below:

sektsioon via Reddit: “If he could master Jorginho’s positioning and game reading, we are golden. Long-term Jorginho replacement in the bag. His movement to get open and make himself available isn’t as good yet either, but that’s expected as he’s so inexperienced still. The potential is off the roof, though.”

Ivehearditboth_ways via Reddit: “Kids a natural. Great decision making and his one-touch passing looked so fluid today. Can’t wait to see how he develops.”

Hitlersdreamboy via Reddit: “Didn’t look out of place at all. Reminiscent of Liverpool last year, stepping up for the big stage. Very happy Tuchel gave him the chance to prove why he should stay. Would love to see him continue to get minutes with the first team next season rather than go on loan.”

eternalblue227 via Reddit: “Big second half from Billy G. Finally up to speed with the pace of the game given he hasn’t had many minutes. Showed his quality and mentality IMO. Didn’t fade after conceding a penalty. Love this guy. Think he needs to go on loan next season to play regularly and come back a year later to fight for a regular spot in the squad.”
