Billy Gilmour was impressive in Chelsea’s FA Cup win against Luton Town.
The 19-year old midfielder put in a brilliant display in the 3-1 FA Cup win though he has found his opportunities limited in the Premier League.
The young Scot can be a solution to Chelsea’s struggles in recent weeks.

Lampard said: “He was outstanding today. He’s comfortable on the ball, his discipline, he was outstanding.
“With his youth and the injury he had, and with the run we’ve been on, it’s about finding the right time to bring him in.
“For the short term, he won’t be going out on loan but we’ll keep that open a little until the end of the month.”
Frank Lampard believes there are some similarities between Gilmour and Man United legend Paul Scholes.
Lampard said: “Paul Scholes is obviously one of the greatest midfield players I’ve played against in the Premier League.
“He would always pick the right pass, he had incredible range. If you did try and jump from midfield and get to him and get close to him he’d just play it around the corner because he knew you were coming.
“Billy has shown early signs of that kind of ability.
“I’m not comparing him to Scholesy, no way at all, but in terms of those basics that you mentioned, then Billy certainly has them and that’s a great platform to build hopefully a fantastic career.”
