Manchester United legend Gary Neville believes Chelsea’s Billy Gilmour is ‘technically better’ than Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips.

Gilmour was named man of the match in Scotland’s goalless draw against England.

“He came into a cup game against Liverpool in his first game [for Chelsea] and he was brilliant,” Neville told ITV Sport.

“His temperament is fantastic, he accepts the ball, watching those clips, it’s a sobering experience for England.

“Gilmour, McGinn and McGregor were better on the ball than England midfield players but not just that, Tierney, Hanley and McTominay at the back were better on the ball passing it into midfield, Stones, Mings, Rice and Phillips struggled to get that build-up play right last night.

“Gilmour was always available, England don’t have that player.

“People might point at Kalvin Phillips but he is not as good on the ball, at accepting the ball, as Gilmour. Technically, he’s a little bit better.”
