Chelsea youngster Billy Gilmour has revealed that he took time to study the way former Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas plays the game of football.


Gilmour, who was named man of the match in the FA cup match against Liverpool says Fabregas is his role model.

“When I first came to Chelsea it was with the IEP (video analysis youth programme), so you had to focus yourself on a player and mine was Cesc,” Gilmour said.

“I loved how he played, so I just went and watched a lot of videos of him. Now I have got older, I just try to put it into the games and it's working. But no, he is a role model of mine. I never ever trained with the first-team with him, so when he was away I got opportunities around there.”

Fabregas praised Gilmour's qualities in a tweet after the game against Liverpool.

“When you have the quality but also the desire, the work ethic and the intelligence, then is when you can see real potential in a young player. He has all of that.” Fabregas said.
