Frank Lampard defends decision to play Billy Gilmour

Frank Lampard defends decision to play Billy Gilmour

"It wasn't a bold substitution because it was one for one in the same position", the coach told reporters after the game.

The 24-year-old, who was on loan at Everton last season, was subjected to the abuse after a Callum Robinson cross deflected into the Chelsea net off the French centre-back to hand the Blades an 89th-minute equaliser at Stamford Bridge.

After the draw, Lampard gave updates on the above-mentioned trio.

"I've got faith in Billy - he's going to have a big future".

Sheffield United came from two goals down Saturday to earn a 2-2 draw at Chelsea, whose manager Frank Lampard is still looking for a first home Premier League win in charge of the London club.


"I think we have plans to do that", Lampard added.

The result was Chelsea's youngest-ever starting XI in a Premier League match.

Pedro also looks unlikely to be fit, so we could see a first start of the season for Willian, with Christian Pulisic and Tammy Abraham completing the front 3.

Tammy Abraham would bag both of those goals. Sheffield has kept their last three contests to within one goal, so Chelsea should be prepared for a fight.

But Lampard refused to blame the youth of his team or individuals.


"The first goal was disappointing because that allowed (the comeback) but we only have ourselves as a group to look at, not individually". I am not anxious at all about any long-term effect at this point. "Hopefully he should be fit the other side of the global break as well", said Lampard ahead of the game.

The young midfielder has the ability to go as far as he wants in the game and making the bench for Chelsea in the Premier League is a massive vote of confidence Lampard.

"We have always maintained an open and healthy dialogue with our partners in this space, but we know we need to do more to protect our users", Twitter said on August 21.

"There is a phase and I remember it is as a player myself, when sometimes you get a couple of niggles and you just have to clear the decks and get them right".
