‘Small But Dangerous’ ‘Looks Like A Young Silva Or Iniesta’ Chelsea Fans On Twitter Hail Starlet After Impressive Display Against Bohemians

Chelsea may have gotten off to an unconvincing start to Frank Lampard’s reign with a 1-1 draw against Irish side Bohemians yesterday, but there were some positives to take from the game.

Midfielder Billy Gilmour came on for the second half and looked sharp, making driving runs from midfield and having a couple of shots on goal.

Supporters on Twitter were impressed by the former Rangers youth product:

Gilmour is likely to be one of many youngsters that Lampard will give game time to over the course of pre-season.

With many of the senior players still on holiday, the match against Bohemians afforded many of the young guns opportunities to impress with Academy Player of the Year Conor Gallagher, Dujon Sterling and Marc Guehi all starting.

In the second half, Ian Maatsen, Trevoh Chalobah, Ike Ugbo, Jamie Cumming and Gilmour were given their chances to shine.

Even though the performance of the team wasn’t much to write home about, Lampard would have learned a lot from his first match in the dugout.
