Chelsea fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to the performance of Billy Gilmour for the Under-23 side against their Arsenal counterparts on Friday evening.

The Blues got the better of the Gunners 3-1 at Aldershot Town to maintain their good start to the league campaign.

Gilmour started the match and was a key figure, as the 18-year-old midfielder showed his quality and class.

 

The former Rangers prospect was a force in the middle of the park, created chances for his teammates, and also provided an assist.

Chelsea fans were impressed with the display produced by Gilmour and have praised the Scotland Under-21 international on Twitter.

Below are some of the best comments:

One for the future

Gilmour is only 18 years of age, and it is going to be hard for the Scottish youngster to establish himself as a regular in the Chelsea first team.

The youngster will get chances from time to time under manager Frank Lampard this season, but it is clear that he is one for the future and will have to be patient in terms of regular first-team football.
