Chelsea are in action against Sevilla on Wednesday night in a game that will go a long way towards deciding who tops their Champions League group.

One player who could feature for Chelsea for the first time since July is the Scottish starlet Billy Gilmour. As reported by NTOF, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has confirmed that Gilmour is in the squad for the trip to Spain.

Player is fit after long absence

The 19-year-old has been out of action since July with a knee injury. However, he is now fit again, and that is good news for the player and the club.

It could also be good news for Scotland. It should not be forgotten how good Gilmour was before the football lockdown halted last season. He was particularly good in a win over Liverpool.

Steve Clarke would no doubt have taken note of that performance. Gilmour will have hopes of getting in the Scotland squad for the European Championships. However, that might depend on both his fitness, and how much football he plays.

Should he become a regular in the Chelsea side then he might well make the squad for the tournament. That could be a gamble as he is still so young. However, it might be a gamble worth taking if Gilmour continues to impress for Chelsea.

Some fans are delighted

Some Chelsea fans on social media seem delighted that Gilmour is set to return to action. One fan described themselves as ‘so happy’ to see the player back. Another had the verdict ‘get in’.
