Billy Gilmour narrates his experience after breaking into Chelsea's first-team just before the coronavirus break.

The young Scot took the football world by storm after two 'man of the match' performances against Liverpool and Everton.

“I always wanted to go and play in the Premier League to test myself and see what my limit is,” Gilmour told Sky Sports.

“Leading up to the games, I was thinking about what I'm going to do. The gaffer said 'Go out and play your own game'. That gives you a lot of confidence.

“When I was on the ball I felt good. I had players running off me which made it a lot easier.

“To get first-team experience against Liverpool felt good.

“After the game, I swapped shirts with Andy Robertson. He came up to me after the game and said 'well done, you played really well, keep doing it and hopefully see you soon in the first-team squad'.

“That was great to hear that from the captain of the country. Everyone knows my feelings about representing my country. Hopefully, I'm not far off it. I just need to keep working hard and see where it takes me.”

The 18-year-old is likely to retain his position in Chelsea's first team when football returns after the break.
