Chelsea defender Zouma: Gilmour was unbelievable

Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma hailed the performance of Billy Gilmour for their FA Cup defeat of Liverpool.

Gilmour, 18, led the way for Chelsea in the win at Stamford Bridge, where Willian and Ross Barkley scored to lead Frank Lampard's men into the quarter-finals.

Speaking about man-of-the-match Gilmour, Zouma said: "Unbelievable performance, very mature in his game, and calm and clever as well, with the ball and without the ball.

"He was fantastic, like he is training. He is training very good. He is very confident and he can keep the ball, he is running around and pressing the guys.

"He has a bright future ahead of him, he just needs to keep working hard."
