“Man of the match everytime he starts” – Mount gives verdict on Gilmour after man of the match performance against England

Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount insists he’s unsurprised by Billy Gilmour’s man of the match performance in Scotland’s goalless Euro 2020 draw with England, insisting his Chelsea team-mate continues to swim rather than sink on the big stage.

Gilmour was named man of the match as Scotland left Wembley with a well-deserved 0-0 draw to keep alive their hopes of qualifying from Group D.

“He didn’t surprise me, I know what he is like as a player,” said Mount.

“We had a good battle and every time he plays he seems to get man of the match – he has done it the few times he played at Chelsea.

“He gets chucked in at the deep end sometimes and he is always swimming.

“I always watched his development and he is going to keep getting better and better and that is good for him personally, for the club and also at international level.”
