FA Cup : Lampard praises youngster after 2-0 win over Liverpool

Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard, was full of praise for Billy Gilmour, following their 2-0 win over Liverpool in the FA Cup fifth round on Tuesday night. Willian opened scoring in the first half, after Adrian fumbled his shot into the net. Ross Barkley doubled the Blues’ lead after the break, with a solo run and finish. However, it was Gilmour who caught Lampard’s eye, with the 18-year-old midfielder only making his third start for the club. What an incredible performance for a young player,” Lampard told the BBC. He was a calm head in that first five or 10 minutes. He’s a throwback of a midfielder. Can you put your foot in? Yes. Can you make angles to play the passes? Yes. He’s only slight in stature but he’s huge in personality. He deserves people to talk about him after a performance like that. Meanwhile Liverpool are having their worst run of games this season after losing to Watford 3-0 over the weekend and again losing to Chelsea in the FA Cup midweek, It is the first time this season Liverpool would be conceding 5 goals in just two matches.
