Evening Standard's Sports Chief writer James Olley believes that Chelsea youngster Billy Gilmour is set to take Jorginho's place in Chelsea's starting XI.

Olley described Gilmour as more complete of the two.

“Jorginho is a divisive figure, but he has been one of the most improved players under Lampard starting every game in all competitions bar two until the end of November,” he said.

“Lampard wants the ball moved quickly in midfield, releasing attacking players in advanced areas earlier. Jorginho can do that but his vulnerability out of possessions often exposed.

“Gilmour, on limited first-team evidence, looks more complete and it is undeniably impressive how nothing has fazed him to date.

“If he is given the opportunity to show similar fortitude and quality when Manchester City visit in the team's next Premier League outing - whenever that maybe - then his journey to replacing Jorginho regularly will be well underway.”

Gilmour won two man of the match awards in Chelsea's last two matches before the break.
