Billy Gilmour has promised to prove his worth at Premier League side Chelsea.

The 18-year-old, who made his first Premier League start in Chelsea's 4-0 win over Merseyside club Everton, says confidence has been key to his displays under Frank Lampard.

"It's a bit surreal still, coming on and playing with top players," the Chelsea midfield prodigy, who was signed from Rangers back in 2017, told Chelsea TV.

"But this is something I've been dreaming of, and when I go out there I need to show that I'm not just a passenger, I need to be there and do something different to keep my position in the team.

"But the boys have been brilliant with me, Toni Rudiger has been brilliant with me, Azpi (Cesar Azpilicueta) has been brilliant, they are always talking all the time and giving me loads of confidence in training and games.

"That's something you always need as a young player, that confidence. If you don't have that confidence you're not going to play well, you're going to be a bit under pressure, be a bit naive.

"But I loved it and the first-team boys do really well with the youngsters."

Gilmour has won two man-of-the-match awards within a week, following his brilliant displays against Liverpool in the FA Cup and in the Blues' win over Carlo Ancelotti's Toffees on Sunday.
