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.
