Scotland fans have been giving their reactions to the brilliant performance of Billy Gilmour for Chelsea in last night’s FA Cup match with Liverpool.

Gilmour was making his sixth first-team appearance of the season, and it was undoubtedly his best showing for the Blues so far.

The talented teenager was fearless in the engine room against arguably the best side in Europe right now, and was heavily involved for the home side – who won 2-0 to advance to the competition’s quarter-final stage.


According to Squawka, Gilmour had 62 touches, completed 37 passes, made five tackles, executed two take-ons, won two aerial duels and created one chance.

That chance created was for Olivier Giroud, after the starlet had completed fooled seasoned Reds star Fabinho with an excellent piece of skill in midfield.
