Five brilliant stats from Billy Gilmour’s FA Cup performance for Chelsea

Quick Reads

Billy Gilmour turned in another eye-catching performance as Chelsea progressed past Luton Town in the FA Cup. 

Despite being only 19 years old, Gilmour plays with the maturity beyond his tender years and plays in a similar style to the legendary Xavi and Andres Iniesta.

We’ve collected five stats from his quietly faultless display at Stamford Bridge.

– Gilmour only touched the ball 84 times but his influence shaped the game.

– He made 70 accurate passes at Stamford Bridge, recording a pass accuracy of 92.1%

– 13 of his 16 long balls found their target, demonstrating the brilliant range of Gilmour’s passing.

– Gilmour even won both of his aerial duels against Luton Town. Not bad considering he’s only 5’7″.

– The 19-year-old also helped out his team defensively, making two clearances, blocking one shot and making two interceptions.

With Thomas Tuchel arriving as Frank Lampard’s successor and Gilmour shining in midfield, you may want to back Chelsea for FA Cup success using online betting.
