Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta has hailed the impact of Chelsea's breakout star Billy Gilmour ahead of Sunday Premier League clash against Everton.

18-year-old Gilmour grasped the attention of the entire football universe with his performance against Liverpool in the FA Cup, and Azpilicueta believes that with his personality, he can only get better.

“What I remember about him since the beginning is that he always wants to give solutions,” Azpilicueta said.

“He has a great personality and that’s why when he goes on the pitch he always wants the ball. The level he showed against Liverpool was amazing: the composure he had, the way he played, the way he defended, he fought for every ball.

“It’s massive for us to have a player with this style of play. Now he has an opportunity, and I am sure the way he played against Liverpool, and the way he behaves, he can be very important for us.

“He is still only 18 years old, and he has a great future ahead of him. I am very pleased for him and now the only way he can go is improving every day.”

Gilmour is set to feature against Everton at Stamford Bridge today in the absence of suspended Jorginho and injured Kovacic.
