‘Generational talent’ – Chelsea fans make Billy Gilmour demand as Tottenham game looms

Billy Gilmour continued his comeback from injury with a goal in Chelsea Under-23s’ Premier League 2 draw with Manchester City today.

The young Blues side trailed 2-0 at the break in the north west, but Gilmour rifled home shortly after the restart before Myles Peart-Harris completed the comeback in a 2-2 draw.

Gilmour burst onto the scene for Chelsea last season before the Premier League’s shutdown due to coronavirus. When action returned, Gilmour suffered a knee injury in July during the 3-2 win over Crystal Palace.

The 19-year-old has been making steady progress on his comeback, featuring for Scotland Under-21s – where he was sent off – playing an hour for the under-23s in the EFL Trophy and then again playing today.
