‘A Class Act’ ‘He’s Winning The Ballon D’or In Like 5 Years’ Fans Hail Chelsea Star’s Display In City Win

Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour was handed his second league start in a row against Manchester City yesterday evening and the Scotland Under 21 international once again showed manager Thomas Tuchel he is ready to be a regular first-team starter.

The 19-year-old was assured in possession and grew into match as the game wore on, although there was one blot on his copybook when he gave away a penalty with a clumsy tackle on Gabriel Jesus just before halftime.

Luckily for Gilmour, the penalty was saved and he put in an excellent second-half performance to help seal a magnificent 2-1 comeback win at the Etihad Stadium. Fans on Twitter were full of praise for the teenager after the game:

It hasn’t been easy for Gilmour since Tuchel arrived in January, having been omitted from the matchday squad on a number of occasions in recent months, but he has slowly but surely eased his way back into the first-team picture. He will be hoping his performance against City will help keep his place in the side.
