Gilmour reveals what he learnt against United

Chelsea played youngsters once again in a 2-1 loss to Manchester United.

The Blues lost to a brilliant Marcus Rashford free kick but over all Chelsea looked the better team on the ball despite Manchester United putting on almost a full first team.

It seemed Ole, who had claimed so much in the summer about giving chances to youngsters was scared of Chelsea and could not risk yet another defeat in what has been a horrible campaign for United.

As for Chelsea, they had Gilmour on the pitch again who had a decent outing.

“I learned a lot,” Gilmour explained. “It was a massive step for me, and for Marc [Guehi] as well. It was a totally different match to Grimsby. Coming into this game we had to be on it, and we thought we played okay.

“I was hoping for a win which we didn’t get, which is gutting. Second half we were a totally different team. We changed formation in midfield with a two and a one, I was the one and had a bit more freedom to try and get on the ball.

“We looked more dominant on the front foot, we played very well and then just a great free-kick separated the two teams.”
