Chelsea young midfielder Billy Gilmour has revealed that he can ball both the number 6 position (DM) or a slightly advanced position like the number 8.
Asked about his favourite position in the pitch, Gilmour said:
I don’t really have a preference. I enjoy both positions [6 and 8]. I’ll happily do whatever. I’ve done both before.
When you’re deeper, you receive the ball from the defenders, dictate play, create opportunities and protect the defence.
Billy Gilmour has performed very well since his return from his knee injury and played 90 minutes in Chelsea’s last game against Morecambe.
He will be looking to get more game time in more competitive games like the Premier League and with such performance he is bringing out already, he will certainly be in contention.
