Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has praised Billy Gilmour for his performance in Chelsea’s 2-0 victory over Fulham on Saturday.

It was Gilmour’s first Premier League start under Tuchel and the German tactician was impressed with the performance of the young midfielder.

Asked what he made of Gilmour’s performance, Tuchel told Chelsea TV: “Very, very good. He’s a confident guy, he’s well aware of his qualities, which is good.

“It was not necessary for him to convince me today because I’m already convinced, otherwise I would not have picked him for the line-up.

“So it was necessary that he plays his part, that he helps the team, and this is what he did. I’m happy for him.”
