Chelsea boss Lampard says Gilmour will feature regularly this season

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard says Billy Gilmour can expect more action in the coming weeks.

Now fully fit, Lampard insists the Scot will feature regular this season.

He said, "We are competitive in midfield. We don't have injuries at the moment and the numbers do mean some players will miss out on squads but the quality of Billy will hopefully mean he gets some minutes, particularly when we look at the Champions League game coming up in midweek.

"More than that, I think Billy's quality will shine through but obviously there is competition in that area so we'll have to see."

Chelsea meet Leeds United this weekend.
