Former Chelsea star Joe Cole has hailed Chelsea's rising star Billy Gilmour for his outstanding performances in so far, and described him as a terrific talent.

“We are the cream of Europe now in England, and Scotland too with Billy. We are producing big amounts of these players,” he told Dailystar.

“They just keep coming through the production line. The future is bright for British football. It’s fantastic.

“Billy is terrific, a real talent. A cultured footballer. He can be what he wants. I like him in that midfield role.

“But I think he might eventually develop and play further up the pitch, like a 10. All Billy needs to do is keep his feet on the ground.

“He’s another massive asset for Chelsea. It will all come down to how he performs. Once you’ve got that shirt it’s up to you to deal with it.

“To be where he is and playing how he is, is a massive achievement for him and his parents. He’s a well-grounded young man.”

Gilmour was named man of the match in Chelsea's last two games (against Liverpool and Everton) before the coronavirus break.
